Description de l'ouvrage

10 décembre 2013
The Covenant of Primus delves into the depths of Transformers mythology to reveal the backstory that’s previously only been hinted at.

Encased in an interlocking Autobot emblem that when pulled open emits Transformer sounds, this tome is a gift to humans from Alpha Trion, one of the ancient Thirteen Primes—the first of the Transformers. Little is known about Alpha Trion, and the rest of the Thirteen Primes have been shrouded in mystery—until now. The Covenant of Primus reveals the stories of these ancient heroes for the first time. It chronicles the saga of Optimus Prime and Megatron and covers the full history of the Transformers. Never-before-seen illustrations depict battles, portraits of the Thirteen Primes, and detailed scenes of the Transformers’ world. Offering insight into their origins, the Golden Age of exploration, the great civil war between the Autobots and Decepticons, and much more, this book is the definitive in-world history of the Transformers.

Product Features:

  • Autobot shield case with three-part interlocking manual opening system and three classic Transformers audio effects
  • Hardcover book with newly commissioned cover art, 20 newly commissioned illustrations, and many never-before-seen images from the Hasbro archive

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Come for the book, not the toy. 11 décembre 2013
Par Zessei - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
First off, please understand this review comes from a pretty hardcore Transformers fan.

I was super excited to get this, and for the most part, it's pretty satisfactory; the book is very well written, features some incredible artwork (including contributions from some of the best artists from the Transformers IDW comics line,) and is a pretty lengthy read. The most devout followers of Primus may find some inconsistancies in this novel's lore; however, as this is likely the official canon, it's hard to find fault with a few minor details.

My biggest concern is the Autobot Emblem that contains the book. I fear the majority of the item's cost is due to this fancy book-holder, and that's a problem. It's very light and feels cheaply made. The rear-set speakers (that require 3 AAA batteries!) are not very good fidelity. When I first took it out of the packaging, a family member asked, "Is that a toy?" And that's pretty much what it feels like.
Worse yet, after opening and closing it once or twice, the top-right third got jammed on one of the internal parts and required quite a bit of force to open again, after which a small piece of plastic was heard rattling around, and needed to be shaken out. The toy still works as far as I can tell, but it's rather disconcerting.
All in all, I'm glad I bought it. But I wish I could have just bought the book for thirty dollars, as opposed to the whole thing for sixty.

So my mother asked what I wanted for christmas and I told her about this book coming out, and being as old as the Transformers and a lifelong fan, she agreed it was a great idea for a Christmas present.
When you order this it comes in a huge box. The outside sleeve is matte black with raised metallic logo and printing on the front. the box itself has a star pattern and some more fancy printing. inside is a black plastic tray and directions on how to use the case.
then you find the shield and the book.

So first off, this is set in, around and about the Aligned continuity. Which is basically the comics, Prime TV series and the war for and Fall of Cybertron Games. As such this explains and NAMES the 13 primes, and goes from there. this is basically the canon bible rewritten and packaged for fans.
While the aligned universe takes a lot of nods from and makes references to the G1 universe, it is still a little bit different, this is NOT G1. Please dont expect that, or you will be VERY disappointed.

on to the shield, theres a handful of complaints here about the shield. Yes it is plastic. It's not die cast. It fits together a little loosely and its awkward to open. It also designed for you to take the book out and hang on the wall. (It will hang with the book in it, but id still be careful, YMMV)

The book is printed on a heavier semi gloss stock than most, the cover is well printed and etched with the face of optimus and the ink and color is beyond that of any of the paperback collected comics. The concept art here is amazing and I've yet to finish reading it, but so far, the writing is on par with that of the comics, not too heady, but its not See Spot Run.

Me personally, I'm greatly enjoying it, and the shield is hanging on the wall over the shelf where i have the new titan class Metroplex, an extant VHS of the `86 movie, a few G1 comics and a some other memorabilia displayed.
If you have a collection of bots and paraphernalia and a hankering to read the backstory with some new art, I'd highly recommend this.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A must for a fan 8 janvier 2014

First off the packaging from Amazon was amazing to Australia. The box they packed it in was double the size and filled with padding so it arrived perfect.
I have to say the outer casing of the book is pretty amazing in itself and I believe it's probably the one book which will become a collectors item and be worth more in years to come.
The book is an amazing read and for someone who barely reads, it was read within the day.
Worth it if you are a huge fan. Just a shame the postage to Australia is so much but all in all a very happy fan here.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 AWESOME!!! 13 décembre 2013

My 22 year old son bought one for him and one for his little brother. Let me just say these are amazing and the boys LOVE them! The entire product is packaged beautifully and will be impressive next to their other special edition Transformers toys. If you are a true Transformers fan, you will love this! Also, my older son showed me that there is a hole on the back that allows you to hang the book on the wall. Not sure if we will do that, but he thought it was pretty cool. Well worth the money!

I bought this for my nephew for Christmas, he asked for it the day it came out, but had no idea how it was packaged. I left it in the big amazon box, and he kept opening until he came to the Transformer box and he was so amazed at the way the book arrived. He thought it would just be a book, but the marketing on this one was unique. He is a Transformer addict, and has an on-line newsletter about old and new transformers.

He can't wait to read the book, and it was the best Christmas present I was happy to give him.
