    From Ain't It Cool News.

    There's more discription of the scene, but I won't divulge it due to its spoilerific-y nature. You can check it out if you want.

    I don't think Bumblebee speaking in Jolly Good English accent qualifies as "speaking just fine". That was all kinds of wrong. He's a Camaro, for god's sake.

    No, it showed that Ratchet was "still working on it". Obviously he hasn't fixed it yet, which is kind of odd. You'd think these "highly sophisticated" robots would be able to fix something like that in a jiffy.

    Is it easy to fix wrecked vocal cords in real life?

    Yeah, his voice still isn't fixed right, although he can probably say slightly more now at times. BB being able to say those things at the end of movie1 was probably his voice working at that time, and it will fall out/get back on in ROTF alot.

    I think the Alliance comic book tries to explain this by having Bumblebee damaged again by Starscream..but pretty much anything that happens in that comic book can be forgotten because everything returns to status quo at the end, just in time for ROTF..:p

    I don't think so. Julie Andrews can't sing any more, and I know someone whose voice was damaged beyond repair. Very scratchy. But there's nothing he can do.

    Why? The allspark fixed decapitated cell-phone mode Frenzy in about 3 seconds, but it couldn't fix BB's voice or his legs?

    Lol i called this over 2 months ago when alliance hit the shelves with issue 2. Yeah SS did give him a shot to the throat and that screwed him up proper....i for one am tired of XM BB. I'm going to hold out for the movie before i pick up ROTF figs. if BB can't talk, then I can't buy his figure. ( It's a matter of principle)

    Nope, not fixed.


    BTW i think people have the wrong idea about these guys. They aint just machines where you can buy some new part and replace the old one. Due to their complexity they are more complicated than that. They can heal just like us, damaged legs can be healed, just like us if we break a leg we stay off it for a few months and then its good as new. But if we get our throat ripped out for some reason thats not gonna be as easy to "fix", since they dont grow back.

    Ratchet was able to fix BB's legs obviously, but just like us fragile humans a vocal processor would be much more complicated to repair.

    BTW the allspark healing thing...what i figure is it can only repair damaged bot's in its large ultimate sized form, not in shrunk form. Although that contradicts itself in a way since it was still able to create life, but i tend to ignore that. Maybe it was able to fix up frenzy because when it was that size the radiation is much stronger or something, but when its shrunk down it doesnt have the same effect because then anyone who holds it would become invincible since the allspark would constantly be healing them. *shrug*

    Plot holes are the same as potholes in the road, just avoid em. :p

    What does "real life" have to do with Transformers? And how does being a human translate to being an advanced robotic organism?

    Two totally different things.

    I guess vocal processors are the new shoulders.

    Why isn't Bumblebee allowed to talk in these movies?? Ok ,I can understand in movie 1 that the producers wanted to show that BB's and Sam's friendship can be expressed beyond words, but ok. That's enough. BB should be able to talk freely, now that Sam know what he is.
