In the 2007 live-action film Transformers, Autobots en route to Earth change their alternate modes into structures called space travel pods and enter the planet's atmosphere in the same way as a meteor. Thereafter, the Cybertronians change to a humanoid shaped endoskeleton structure known as Protoform.

Transformers: Robots in Disguise is an anime series which has an associated toy line released in 2001 by Hasbro. The anime and toy line were originally released in Japan in 2000 by Takara as Transformers: Car Robots (トランスフォーマー・カーロボット?).
The Robots in Disguise version of Optimus Prime transforms into a modern fire truck. The fire truck divides into two halves, of which the front half transforms into Optimus Prime's robot mode, and the rear half transforms into a battle station with facilities for field repairs. In robot mode Optimus Prime can combine with the trailer module to increase his size and strength. In this mode he is loaded with weapons, of which one is the giant water cannon within his ladder. The jet from the water cannon has an enormous force, so strong that it can send its targets into orbit.
