Adamski-style UFO Transformers toy from 1985

I was 12 in 1985, so maybe I was just done with Transformers by then. I doubt I still collected or played with them. So that’s probably how Autobot “Cosmos” slipped my attention. In 1985, a Transformer was produced that looked precisely like an Adamski-style bell-shaped UFO. Cosmos is an Autobot, which makes it a good guy.

Adamski’s space brothers from Venus were good guys too. I wonder if there was ever a Decepticon (bad guy robot) “Reticulan” UFO. That and just one more would make a pattern of indoctrination via desensitization. Toys can be controlled by children. Toys of UFOs train children to disregard any real UFOs they may see without any fear.

In fact, there are two other versions of Autobot Cosmos…

And then, the really expensive version of this character…

The cost-prohibitive Autobot MW04 UFO Transformer.

The Adamski-style bell-shaped UFO Autobot Cosmos Transformer from 1985 is still the best…!
