    In G1 the Autobot Cosmos was a flying saucer. Real cool, and I think it could JUST work in a TFilm: maybe it’s his protoform mode, and he is captured in a photo as one of the famous UFOs sighted or something.

    In regards to an Earth-based alternate mode, I think he could be:
    - a military satellite (the most reasonable one, but this would put him on par with Soundwave, which wouldn’t be right IMO as Blaster is and deserves to be Soundwave’s counterpart)
    - a lunar rover/crawler (either manned or unmanned – preferably manned)
    - a space telescope (the Hubble would make a great alt mode)

    Something astronomic, that would probably fit him well.

    If Cosmos made a film debut, I believe that he would be a massive spaceship, like the size of the Ark or close to it. If he had an alternate form on Earth, it would have to be either the shuttle stack or a large transport, like an Antinov.

    His profile does classify him as an ocassional prankster that likes to spook humans by flying over their property. His alt-mode is an opposite disguise; Instead of blending in as a typical earth vehicle, he chooses an urban legend that causes others to doubt their senses when he is spotted.

    So he could transform into bigfoot! lolololol

    Yeah, I see what you mean, and it actually makes real sense.

    I would go with something like this, like an UFO, or something spaceworthy, like the OP said. perhaps some kind of transport, not particularly with an earth alt mode

    Wow. Never thought of the UFO as an apposite disguise, I guess it can work.

    I have a crazy idea:
    Maybe in Cybertron Cosmos worked as a satellite (or a space probe) like Soundwave in ROTF
    He knew Sentinel Prime´s real intentions so he went on his own to earth but crashed in New Mexico many years ago and eventually being hidden away from Sector 7. (I still having plot holes in my story )

    His particular shape makes people say the typical expression when he is spotted and filmed "WTF a UFO!!!"

    Anyways all of this reminds me this music video:
    TRAVIS - Side [The Invisible Band][HQ] - YouTube

    Personally I like the one at 1:30 for Cosmos alternate form

    I'd personally have him land in hollywood. Being clueless to the ways of the silly earth creatures, he scans a UFO prop off the set of a major Michael Bay film, thinking it's a real earth vehicle.

    I don't care what kind of spaceship Cosmos turns into, as long as he's a) a spaceship b) got a bubble around his head and c) is clumsy but AWESOME. I'm not fussed if he sounds like Peter Lorre, I never got why that was his voice in the cartoon.

    That Avrocar would have been awesome if it had got past the test stage.

    This would fit into the narrative of the previous films really well.

    Well considering this is the Bayverse; Cosmos would probably turn into a car, or something non-spaceship related.
