    So which mute do you like better Bumblebee or Soundwave?

    Why do you like the one you do?

    If either of them were to suddenly talk who would you want to voice them?

    What would an episode that only has Bumblebee and Soundwave in it be like?

    If they don't make a real episode I think someone on YouTube needs to edit one complete with grainy black and white film filter and title cards to fill in for the dialog that they would be speaking if either of them could actually talk. lol

    Soundwave. He's mute done right. Bumblebee being mute is a gimmick trying to ape the movieverse.

    Soundwave is the Fowler of mutes, Bumblebee is the Miko of mutes.

    Soundwave. That's like comparing gold with a rock. Gold is better.

    I think there's some irony in the fact that Bumblebee isn't the gold in that analogy.

    Neither character is mute. Soundwave can speak but doesn't, and Bumblebee can communicate, but not in verbal English.

    Neither character talks. Soundwave chooses not to talk so is basically mute. Bumblebee has a damaged voice box so is by definition a mute.

    Mutes can still communicate threw sign language or like Steven Hawkings. Just because they can communicate doesn't mean they're not mute. Mute just means that they can't use their own voice box to talk as a normal person would.

    Technically Soundwave is the only one who is not a true mute but sense he doesn't talk anyway I'm basically using mute to mean that they don't have voice actors (yet) and you shouldn't take it literally.

    I'm still curious as to who should play them if Soundwave should ever speak or Bumblebee should ever get his voice box repaired.

    Yes, he hasn't won the Dreadwing vs. Skyquake poll... oh wait, he wasn't in that poll never mind.

    Anyway... I voted Bumblebee because even though he's only had one good episode of Prime while Soundwave has had a lot of really awesome moments I like his design over Soundwave's and the nostalgia vote of Bumblebee being my favorite character when I was 4 makes me very bias towards him.

    Also it took me a long time to even vote in my own poll and I felt kinda bad that no one was voting for Bumblebee. This way he gets at least one vote.

    Congratulations, you're the first person to make the "Soundwave Superior" joke/reference. I was wandering when someone was going to say that. Would of been better if you also said "Bumblebee Inferior" to finish the line but oh well.

    TFP Soundwave murders TFP Bumblebee. He then enters an alternate dimension into Bay's movie world and murders Bayverse Bumblebee for clear reasons.

    Barring any debate on the definition of "mute"...

    Pretty much this.

    I love the silent Soundwave, and I don't mind the beep-bop-booping of Bumblebee, but I do wish that we could hear Bumblebee speak, even if only in a flashback. I'd like to have David Kaye (in slightly less "leader-y" TFA Optimus voice). 'Mute' Bumblebee worked for Bayformers. It's worked all right for TFP. I can live with FOC making him lose his voicebox. But personally, I'd say that let it end there.
