Cosmos:

Profile: Rocketing around the vast gulfs of space might seem like fun, but Cosmos knows the truth: it gets lonely up there. Sure, he understands that every Autobot has a job to do in the battle against the Decepticons, and he acccepts his without argument. But he’s not always happy about it. Sometimes, to relieve the boredom of a long vigil orbiting the Earth, he’ll zip down at night and scare a few humans by hovering over their back yards. He also delights in showing off his maneuverability by zig-zagging through an occasional meteor shower. But mostly he maintains his solitary orbit. At least he’s comforted by one thought; that he never gets stuck in any traffic jams like his auto-like brethren.

Weakness: Cosmos is not well suited to function as a robot on the ground –he’s slow, awkward and not too strong. Sometimes in his search for some pleasant diversions to relieve his boredom, he neglects his job. This unreliability can occasionally result in problems for any Autobot depending on him.

 

Here is something  I never knew!  Special thanks to J. Hunterstein for e-mailing me the pictures!  Seen  to the the left and right, he found a pretty nifty peice of info relating to Cosmos. His alternate mode is based on an actual U.F.O. apparently seen & photographed in 1951. Whether or not the photos are authentic is besides the point. It's just cool to see that his alt mode is actually based specificially on this!
