Came up with this a few days ago. We all know that Snarl and Swoop have yet to talk, and probably never will. Well here's a possible reason! Megatron created the Dinobots right? Why, because he wanted a new body. So he created GRIMLOCK specifically to be his new body, while Swoop and Snarl were probably meant to be just more minions. So if Megatron wanted Grimlock, wouldn't it be easier if he gave a voice chip to Grimlock only so he could talk when on his (Grimlock's) body? This could explain why Snarl and Swoop don't talk. Megatron wants powerful, loyal servants. He doesn't want complete idiots running around. But he also doesn't want them to become so smart, that they will try to takeover like Starscream. So he built them with LIMITED intelligence, so that they could become fiercly loyal, but only smart enough to do what their leader says (which is why they listen to Grimlock now). Megatron might have not wanted them talking because...well, you know how annoying Lugnut is to Megatron. 'But Hiraga, Grimlock could talk just fine in the lab, why would he put a voice chip in Grimlock if he could already talk?' Explain to me, do you really know HOW Megatron planned on going on to Grimlock? Have Grimlock take off his head and put on Megatron's? Please, Grimlock ain't bright, but he knows better then to decapitate himself. Thoughts?
