    Yesterday episode with Knock Out and Breakdown is going me to believed due by Knock Out's Rahkshi-like staff that electrocute Autobots ever Bulkhead used it against Breakdown. So I wonder is Knock Out used this weapon to mute Bumblebee for to talk again?

    Upon reading the title...my brain just went to an awful, awful place.

    It'd be interesting if he did. A nice potential for character development for both

    I like that idea, I find it more appealing than the 'Megatron did it' explanation Hasbro likes to bandy about.

    I'd be hard to explain. Bumblebee's not mute, he just doesn't speak English. The other Autobots and Raf can understand him perfectly. Unless Knockout did some type of damage that stops him from speaking other languages.

    Didn't one the writers say they were using the Exodus version where it was Megs who tore out his voice box (or whatever its called)?

    I could have swore they said in the Q&A that is was a character issue they were going to be dealing with in bumblebee's development, sounded like he hadn't developed the capability to totally vocalize yet and was on his way to learning how.

    Three things to think about: We won't find out till season two how it happened, apparently they're basing it off the Exodus version and from watching the episode, neither Knock Out or Bumblebee suggested any previous contact or history like Bulkhead did for Breakdown, in fact theirs not a single sign they ever knew of one another till then.
