    Okay, so what I want to know is why they chose for Hardshell not to speak. In G1 he and Shrapnel (Sharpshot) seemed to share leadership, and they made Bombshell a manipulative, mind controlling psycho. He was without a doubt my favorite insecticon, and I feel he really got passed over this time.

    If it were me, I would have made Kickback silent.

    This is part of the curse of the franchise. No matter what you do, you upset someone.

    I'm not trying to whine, but I honestly don't know why they made him silent.

    He never needed to talk, they didn't make him silent.

    But it's funny that I read "Hardshell", then looked down, and "Complaints about the Multiplayer".

    OMGURD HARDSHELL DIDN'T TALK!

    *They get voice actor for Hardshell*

    OMGURD HARDSHELL HAS A BAD VOICE ACTOR!


    The curse of the fandom, no matter what you do, someone will be upset.
    Personally Hardshell didn't need to talk, he was just a random boss fight to test your handling of Grimlock. I'm glad they gave the spotlight to the bugs who deserved it, and this is coming from a fan of Bombshell.

    I didn't mean to imply you were whining. My apologies.

    But it's true. He didn't need to speak really. I assume it was one of those things that had to be done. As a game developer you often have to cut things for any number of reasons. I'd bet his voice is one such thing.

    I agree with him, it does suck how things like voice cuts are happening regularly. Prime example (Lol prime) Soundwave and bumble bee being mutes. Kind of getting irritating how our favorites are being silenced due to a lack of effort on the creators behaves.

    I No longer cared for most of the discussions on here. Plus 98 percent of people on this forum are children who don't know how to talk without bashing down someones opinion, or changing the topic constantly. Back to the topic on hand, I wouldve loved to hear hardshell say atleast something. Maybe a nodd to david kayes hardshell. "Yessssssssss"

    While I agree that Prime Soundwave and Bee should not be mute, their silence isn't caused by being cut. Bee was forced into it because of the movies. Soundwave was an artistic choice to make the character more mysterious. But I agree, they should not be mute.

    Just thought I'd fix it for ya. Seeing as how half the fandom doesn't know how to spell.

    Let's leave the word "mute" for Bumblebee only shall we? The word mute means that you can't make any sound whatsoever... So I guess Bee doesn't count as being mute either, seeing as he can make beeping noises. Soundwave isn't technically mute either, he just chooses not to talk. He's like Snake-eyes, he can talk but he prefers to be silent. It's kind of like that shy kid at your school, they have a voice to talk with... But they just choose not to use it in most situations.
