    From the rumors I have heard of Bumblebee being mute in the film and the recent images I have seen of him in robot mode, my theory is because his voice box is broken, what we see where his mouth should be is actually a device to keep his mouth shut till the repairs are down so the excessive mouth movement will not be needed if he doesnt talk.

    What do you think on about it?

    Battle mask, real face underneath. Just like OP.

    Three of the official leaked designs have two different face modes, OP, Megs and Blackout. My guess is that they'll continue this trend with the rest of the TF. The real size BB we keep seeing seems to be used while filming battle scenes for the movies so they prolly didn't even bother making a real face for the mock up.

    Remember the closeup pic of him beneath the tarp? Right next to the horseshoe, there are silver slits which appear to either be teeth or a smile.

    Maybe the Bumblebee we've been seeing is the 'battle damaged' version, and after Ratchet repairs him he looks different.

    I hope that they have dropped that stupid storyline element from the script. By all means make him talk through the radio, but make it actually him. Have the radio sizzle out like when you spin the dial too far and have his voice cut in.

    I don't know, I kinda like that aspect. It feels almost like a throwback to the Junkions "speaking TV" from the original movie.

    That's what I was thinking. It'd also be great for some characterization if we get a sense of it being frustrating for BB when he has trouble trying to get himself across to other characters.

    Similar, but there is a big difference between someone who speaks almost entirely in TV qoutes and someone who talks by picking up the right words from the radio.

    Honestly, to me, it ain't BB without that slightly NY-ish accent. Him not talking is just as bad as meg's and SS's designs in my book, those being the only things I've seen about the film so far I don't like.

    Though I still support my theory that the pics we've seen of him, and Jazz for that matter, are of them in their 'battle mode' masks.
