Those are referred to as Destroyer Droids. The Droid Fighters are also
supposed to transform too, although they didn't show the transformation
sequence in the movie. The huge, spider-like walkers (not unlike the
Dragoons from StarCraft) you see in the background in the shot where
Battle Droids were turning to see the "ambassador" ship entering the hangar
of Trade Federation's command station is the transformed Droid Fighter.

PS Is it just me or did the spacecraft designs for Episode I sucked rocks?
   None of them had the coolness or stylistic appearance of the X-wings
   or TIEs, except maybe for the Sith Infiltrator.
