I realize that with a movie like this they can't always do everything logically... if they did it would be a boring film! (see: Why did the Death Star have to wait to get around Yavin to destroy Yavin IV instead of destroying Yavin first? Dramatic tension) So, don't get me wrong, this is no bash... but something occured to me the other day while watching TF. When the Autobots are fleeing Sector 7 (one of my absolute favorite parts) it seemed to me that if Optimus Prime transformed and threw the kids inside, then hauled ass, they would have gotten away! So, theres that... BUT that would have been boring so I'm glad it didn't happen that way. Anyway, what's funny to me about that is instead of Prime using his disguise (i.e. truck) to hide, as is the whole nature of Transformers on Earth, instead this 30 foot tall robot decides to run through the city and then HIDES under a bridge!!! It'a kinda funny when you think about it!
