    Him without is how I grew to like him in TF1, but I'm always used to TF's speaking.
    And let's be honest people, his voice could be worse, it's not that bad.

    His voice sounded dumb and didn't suit the character at all. That's 2.

    Yea, the radio thing just didn't cut it for me, so it seems a lot simpler to just let him say what needs to be said.

    Agreed. He sounded like a robot butler, and it was the same character who pissed on a government agent and was shadow boxing in the ally.

    And I find it hilarious how much the actor went on and on about his performance, and how many interviews he had. IT WAS 2 LINES! GET OVER YOURSELF!

    His voice was fixed at the end of the movie so I would say Yes he will speak.

    I've said it before in greater detail, but I like his voice. It adds a charm to him that helps balance his more mischievous side.

    Yes, yes, yes.
    Radio-speak was cool for the first movie, but it's time for him to talk.
    I want Sam and Bumblebee banter.

    Radio-speak was more charming. I hope his speech is limited this time so he can Radio-speak some more.

    But if he does end up talking fluently, it was the Allspark that fixed him. Not some red laser which Ratchet could have used in the first place instead of "still working on them".

    Like everyone has said...he spoke at the end of the movie, so unless he was in some weird accident, why wouldn't he speak.

    Apparently something weird did happen in the comics. My worry is that if he seemed to be fixed at the end of the movie then is broken again at the start of the new movie it's going to be confusing for the average people. It's just silly to have his voice thing getting busted again. Like the Cons are doing it purpose just to screw with the guy.

    Once again...

    The comic portray him as his voice box shorting out on occasion. He can and does still speak, it's just that occasionally his voice box will cut out, and he'll be forced to resort to the radio. No explanation is necessary - his voice box just wasn't totally fixed at the end of film 1.

    Actually, I remember it having a tinny, slightly buzzy sound to it. I thought that was neat.

    I would like him to speak, it would be really nice for him and Sam to talk to each other, I can just imagine that.

    Mark Ryan didnt know it was going to be used in the film, he was voiceing the robots on set for the cast to interact. He said if Bay told him, he would have tried a diffrent voice for the character.

    Well he got his voice back so I don't see why he wouldn't. And who ever says it sounds dumb or doesn't suit him, get over it. Just please. This fan base has enough haters hating multiple things. Don't start with the stupid voices now. He had like 2 lines.

    I liked the contrast in his voice to his behaviour in the movie. It showed that although he behaved like a kid at times, he's essencially not. Wouldn't go as far as saying he's an adult cause he doesn't appear to be.... comes across more like a kid who's grown up in war, so takes the opportunity to act out when ever possible. (get this from a mix of the comics and movie)

    I could see it being that he's not gonna talk constantly. Only speak when he needs to like at the end of the movie.
