    I just saw a sneek peek clip or Operation Bumblebee, it involves a scene of Bulkhead and Bumblebee, the only problem is, somehow Bumblebee has lost the ability to transform and he's stuck in robot mode?

    Thoughts?

    You can see the clip at Seibertron or on youtube, I guess it will be here soon

    Wait, so the compromise is the inability to transform?

    I was expecting Megatron trying to use that psychic patch to control him, or Dreadwing manipulating him X_X

    To think of it he can still be part of the team, he just can't transform, he can still use his blasters right, or dose his inability to transform also stop his from using his weapons, think of it, he has to transform part of his arm to use them?

    That's some serious music for what at most is a minor setback. That's not that huge of a deal. TFs lose the ability to transform all the time. Besides it's not like he uses his vehicle mode that much for actual missions. Not as much as, say, Arcee does.

    not only that but it will also make his job on earth very difficult.
    They have to hide from the humans, Bumblebee not being able to transform means he has to stay at base because the risk of him being seen in robot-mode is too big;
    also: he's slower now, being unable to transform into his faster alt-mode
    and he can't pick up Raf from school anymore.

    But he can still go on stealth missions, still fight, still do everything he normally does in combat.

    If indeed he's lost his weapons that seems like a bigger setback than the loss of his vehicle mode. He doesn't really use his vehicle mode for anything of great importance. (Just watch, every situation in the episode will involve chases or travelling great distances without a ground bridge)

    Someone give this guy a news credit!

    Edit: I saw the clip and it showed everything but why
    Miko, Bumblebee and Raf were freaked out.
    The answer better be in the next preview clip, if they have one.

    It would probably be more interesting if he was stuck in alt mode rather than robot mode.

    Well that'll suck.(sigh)
    Nah, this show just lost its ability to be smart. Seriously, how many times does the autobots use their vehicle modes in combat.

    It would also be a great homage to the episode The Probe from Beast Wars. :D

    Calling it. Mech stole his transformation cog or whatever to include in Project Chimera. Last MECH episode did end with Silas going "woah groovy" at Airachnid getting her alt mode;

    They've doen it several times so far. Why break a God-damned streak.

    Arcee does all the time.

    In fact if it were Arcee instead of BB this would be more dramatic.

    The show can't stop writing plots about her even if it wants to.

    Yeah, The Autobot Run. And they used the device during a race, that was awesome.
