    It's just part of the musical piece that plays throughout the whole Autobot Arrival scene. It's called "Arrival to Earth" on the score CD. Very cool piece of music.

    that bit of music in that scene is some of the best of the movie imo.

    Seconded. I like the musical score for the movie overall, but that music added SO much more emotion and depth to the scene. It even saved it from that fat guy with the video camera spouting out idiotic lines.

    I thought Ironhide was the one who landed in the baseball stadium.

    Oh well, doesn't make much difference either way.

    Prime-open field
    Ironhide-swimming pool
    Ratchet-street in front of the store (where the guy with the video camera was.)
    Jazz-stadium.

    Just based on how the scene was edited.

    Agreed, that whole arrival scene is undeniably awesome. But a giant robot and that kid and the music make that 30 seconds or so some of my favorite from the movie. Could be because that girl reacts much how my daughter would.

    Ironhide must have softlanded in that pool because it looks in pretty good shape from being impacted by some large flaming object from space.

    and how. it releases the tension, because they use a simplified theme of that throughout the first 50 minuts of the film, but they never resolve it with the melody.

    Sorry guys, don't meant to nitpick but i really thought it was Prime coming out the pool. Only because of the grand entrance like "Here's their leader" type of entrance. And plus that bot was pretty tall hiding behind those trees. I don't think ironhide is that big. But that's just my opinion.

    Nope, its Ironhide. The order of scenes supports it too. You see him take form as the Topkick before seeing Optimus take form as the semi. The scenery around Optimus when the transformation occurs is also in stark contrast to the suburban community.

    I never interpreted the music to imply anything about who the TF was. More the sense of childlike wonder and human awe the little girl may be feeling as she comes face to face with the alien visitor.

    ya it has been confirmed by numerous sources including the script of the movie, that is is Ironhide getting out of the pool.

    Well regardless of who it really was, I just feel it should have been Prime. It'd be fitting for him to get the grand entrance, and the size comparison to the people and the tree, seemed more of Prime really.

    Oh well.

    Someone elsewhere also brought up the point that Optimus with his protective concern for other lifeforms would have purposely landed away from populated areas. Hence his arrival in the field. Not sure what that says about the other Autobots though. He might need to have a talk with them. LOL

    What about the way he was like... running away from Sam/Mikaela? It would make sense if it was Ironhide since he isn't very fond of the humans, a little as a ego and a little as a dislike of the way they look at 'aliens'.

    Maybe he didn't want them to see him "naked". :)

    He needed to get a disguise quick.


    You can notice that the left ankle of the pool protoform is broken, and his IH's tech spec says that he has lots of "temporary solutions"

    Agreed. I'm not sure he was even aware of Sam & Mikaela's presense. Last thing he's going to do at that moment is take in the scenery.

    Ironhide was the pool Autobot. It was that way in the script that was leaked IIRC, plus when Ironhide turns into the Topkick, he's still in the suburbs.

    Prime is in a field near Griffith Observatory, since Sam and Mikaela manage to follow him after he crashes (the camera even tracked Prime's protoform as it came down, and was the first to crash). You can see the distinctive obelisk of the observatory in the background behind Prime when he finishes transforming into the truck.

    It's damn obvious which protoforms were which. But I suppose these are the people who question where Megatron got scanned his alternate form from too or how the Allspark was able to shrink itself.

    Anyway, I love the music for when Ironhide comes out of the pool. But I loved the score for the whole sequence and the film itself.
