It's actually really cool that they do it in the cartoon, and it adds a mystic/magical element to Transformers that has been hinted at even in G1, but not expounded on much in US fiction.
Plus, Megatron was a 20 foot tall robot who shrunk down to a pistol or rifle that a human could hold, and Soundwave did the same thing.
This harkens back to G1 comics with Pretenders where they did Transform into giant armored humans who fought giant armored monsters. It was cheesy then, and it's cheesy now, but it's fun cheese.
Could look like a lot of people in a helmet.
