    It's something that's bugged me for a while. Bumblebee doesn't have a mouth. He has nothing that he could speak with. If he was mute he should have a mouth. Unless Ratchet sealed it up or something.


    It's strange, since Bee was able to talk at some point. Maybe he had an injury like Bane in TDKR, but had his mouth severely injured which led to him being mute, and wears something to cover up his mouth/ lower face, similar to how Prime has that face mask. Except, when Bee "talks" all we see is his head moving, and all we hear is a clear and loud beep.It's not like we hear some muffling.

    Presumably, Megatron's mutilating of his throat required his facial structure to be rebuilt to compensate for the inadequate replacement. Bumblebee can't form actual words, but he presumably has some kind of transmitter on/under his face that relays the beeping, a cruder Cybertronian language.

    It's his helmet, it covers the mouth. It's a design thing like Kenny McCormick's parka.

    I think, he has.
    I see it as his mouth, not as his helmet. But, probably, I haven't seen the "Recue Bots" design.

    jackgaughan, so, it's helmet? Looks gross...

    Might be, it was removed by Ratchet? Like how they remove your organs, which can't work any longer. I mean humans. Or how they delete parts of the body destroyed by cancer.

    BB tried to intimidate Megatron with his best impression of Christian Bales Batman and then Megatron ripped out his voice box in disgust!

    BB has no mouth because he used to be a dragonborn and his voice boom nearly killed Meagtron until he ripped out his voice box.

    I think he actually does have a mouth. It's just that we can't see it, cause he's long since given up use of it...

    Holy crap, you're right. I've just been taking it for granted because he can't speak, but yeah. Megatron ruined his voice box. Did he also weld new metal over where his mouth was? Character design fail.
