So, everybody loved BB's plucky little radio speak, and hated his voice at the end. Ok, so, how are they going to do it in ROTF? Well, here's the lowdown. In the official Prequel comic Alliance, issue 2, Starscream raided a camp and got in a big fight with Wreckage and it was all sorts of messy. BB showed up to save the day and was caught in the crossfire, taking what looked to be a hit to the throat. Ok... Well, I got issue 3 today, and in the first panel, BB seemed to have a bit of trouble speaking. He kept glitching out mid sentence. Later in the episode, when Ratchet should have already had time to look at him, BB has similar trouble. After failing to get through a word twice, he gives up and resorts back to the Radio. I think we may say that continued in ROTF, with the in-movie explnation that BB's processor wasn't fully repaired. He'll only be able to speak occasionally, before his voice shorts out and reverts to radio talk. This will have the benefit of minimizing the voice we hate and allowing them to pull more radio gags (which were pretty popular). So, that's my theory. What do you all think of this solution?
