    I was reminded of this after viewing the "Bumblebee Speaks!!" thread. I was watching Dark of the Moon the other day with the captions on. I noticed something after the Autobots make their triumphant return. After Optimus shoots down that fighter, The Wreckers kill the protoform Decepticon.

    When a movie is captioned there are a few things to look for. They separate the lines of different characters by one of three ways.

    1. Optimus: Get down here Sentinel!
    Sentinel: Optimus, you forget your place!

    2. -Get down here Sentinel!
    - Optimus, you forget your place!

    3. Get down here Sentinel!
    (pause between captions) Optimus, you forget your place!

    During the scene mentioned above, I recognized the third way being executed. It gave the impression that three people were talking insted of two.

    So, I went back and listened again. There is a significant difference the voice that says "This is going to hurt!" and the voice that says "A lot!" The first voice was deeper, scratchier and had a different accent (I am guessing Australian)

    I believe that this is Topspin saying his ONE line in the entire movie.

    Leadfoot: Wreckers! Kill him!
    Topspin: This is going to hurt!
    Roadbuster: A lot!

    No. Topspin didn't say anything.

    Only Leadfoot and Roadbuster talked during the scene you mentined:
    Leadfoot:"Wreckers!Kill him!"
    Roadbuster:"This is going to hurt!! A lot!!

    Besides, Topspin got kicked in the face in that scene, that would have interrupted his line if he was speaking

    if u look at the credits , youll notice that topspin doesnt have a voice actor, thus - he doesnt have a line in the whole movie :(

    (Sound of hopes and dreams being crushed)

    Sorry everybody, I was sure he had said something.

    EDIT: (Sound of hopes and dreams being resurected)
    The voice actor could have not been mentioned in the credits. Much like Barricade.

    Well it was easy to tell it was Frank Welker doing his voice. I wish Jess Harnell could have done it instead.

    Well Leadfoot obviously says "Wreckers, kill him!", and then Roadbuster says "This is going to hurt!", but then, the last line is said by Topspin. Seriously, that last line, "A lot!", has a different sounding voice than Roadbuster's line.

    Australian voice for Topspin? have you not heard Roadbuster's awesome Scottish accent?
    That was clearly Roabuster saying "This is going to hurt, A LOT!"
    c'mon!

    I just saw the movie yet again early this morning and, no, he doesn't speak a word.
