    Okay, after watching the promo for "Out Of The Past" it shows Shockwave, but he doesn't speak like in other promos where new characters speak. Example: Dreadwing. It seems that show is really fond of mute characters, Bumblebee,Soundwave, and sometimes vehicons don't speak.

    The Dreadwing promo was short, he spoke in it. Wheeljack spoke in his promo as well.

    Just because Shockwave didn't speak in the promo does not mean he's not gonna speak in the episode.

    I am strongly assuming (but hope otherwise) that Blum will be reprising the Aligned Shockwave role.

    Yeah, seriously. Some people seem like they're just looking for reasons to complain. Besides, Cliffjumper was pretty obviously the focus of the ad, and there's always the chance that they're trying to make Shockwave something of a surprise.

    This show has shown itself capable of getting some pretty interesting guest stars without any prior announcement-- I never expected to hear Clancy Brown or John Noble in the series before their characters showed up.

    I am not complaining, i'm curious. If he's mute then so be it, I am just pointing out "facts".

    Bumblebee and Soundwave are not mutes. Bumblebee can make sounds through beeps and whistles like Bay's Bumblebee, therefore not a mute (mute means complete and total silence). As for Soundwave, he can speak but just chooses not to so he's not a mute.

    We don't even know IF Soundwave can talk. By mute I meant "speaking proper english".

    Maybe he don't speak in the promo because they still don't want to give us a hint about the voice actor?

    Imagine the rage when they find out that Paul Reubens is making his Pee Wee voice..

    I think they are just holding the voice back for the episode. Hopefully because it's going to be someone the fans can go crazy for.

    Plus it's a very short ad that was pushing the return or flashback of Cliffjumper so it's very likely that the clips that made for a good ad just didn't have a speaking part for Shockwave in those brief moments. Even Starscream has his moments when he doesn't say something in the episodes.

    With Soundwave playing the silent but deadly part I just can't see the show adding a second one at this point. That would be a bit like GI Joe adding another silent ninja to go with Snake Eyes.

    I really will hate it if that happens. He's just not Shockwave.

    I think David Kaye or Tom Kane should voice him if Corey was unavaliable.

    Maybe he doesn't speak in the promo because, oh I dunno, they just didn't use a clip with him speaking?
