The Covenant of Primus is a reference book published by becker&meyer for the 30th Anniversary of the Transformers franchise. It details the history of Cybertron from the formation of the 13 Primes up to the events of Earthfall. In-universe, it was a gift to humanity from Alpha Trion. It came inside a shield modeled after the Autobot logo.
The Origin Story of the Transformers and the History of Cybertron
After 30 years of Transformers storytelling, here at last is the complete volume that ties together all the lore surrounding Cybertron.
This book is a gift to humans from Alpha Trion, the mentor of Optimus Prime and one of the legendary Thirteen Primes—the first Transformers. The Covenant of Primus reveals the origina story of the Transformers for the first time and traces the ages of history on Cybertron.
The Thirteen Primes left a dual legacy of loyalty and betrayal, unity and discord. Their triumphs and secret pain both cast a long shadow over their descendants on Cybertron, from the Quintesson invasion to the Golden Age of exploration to the war between Megatronand Optimus Prime. New stories and new heroes abound, as well as insights into familiar characters like Bumblebee, Ratchet, and Shockwave. More than 60 illustrations of key characters and battles, most of them never before seen, lend immediacy to the stories on the page and bring ancient heroes to life.
The Covenant of Primus rests inside an Autobot shield with reflective eyes and audio effects. The case pulls apart in three sections to reveal the Covenant. With the book removed, the shield can be mounted on the wall.
