    ok so in the first movie we found out how BB doesnt speak, at the end he does.in the comic that follows, he gets shot by starscream in the voicebox-which is why he didnt speak in rotf.i personally think he needs to have some LINES in dotm!

    If they give him a new, more boyish voice, I'd be all for it. Mark Ryan's voice work didn't suit him at all.

    Unfortunately, however, I doubt he'll ever be given any lines. The 'talking with his radio' thing has become Bee's signature gimmick of sorts by this point in time.

    No. Not talking is his thing. Why do people want to rob him of the one character trait that makes him unique?

    There comes a time once in a blue moon where somebody in the movie forum will say something genuinely funny.





    This is not one of those times.

    This should have happened in the film. It can't be expected that the audience read the prequel comics to understand what happened to one of the film's main characters.

    Which is why in ROTf it's pointed out that he is merely "playing up" the fact that he couldn't talk. He can talk, but doesn't want to.

    That's a really lazy motive. I seem to remember in the original version of the scene (The Wondercon or Comic Con video?) It had Bee trying to speak, albeit having to use select words from different soundbytes, along with his own voicebox: "What is your true purpose, Sam?"

    That's so more telling than 'Bee just doesn't feel like it.' The latter makes Bee come off like a lazy a**hole.

    No. It would be weird for him to randomly start talking after being silent in ROTF. Maybe he'll get a couple lines, but other than that I don't see it happening.

    I would prefer not to have him speak.

    Mark Ryan didn't really suit Bumblebee, but OHMYGAWD was Jetfire amazing.

    Better than the TF: P Bee. Sounds like someone is raping a squeaky toy.

    He'll probably get something in at the end. But yeah, radio-talk is BB's thing now. So if he talks, he won't do it too much.

    You shut your mouth. YOU SHUT IT RIGHT NOW.
    TFP Bumblebee's 'voice' is the greatest thing since sliced bread.

    Well, we do get a new female lead. Sam could explain to her that BB's voice is damaged and it hurts too much for him to talk. Explains away the continued radio use, and can make for a dramatic bit near the end with him actually using his to talk to Sam.

    I just got the mental image of someone humping a rubber duck. o_O

    He will have a Morpheus-like speech towards all the autobots that motivates them before the climatic battle for possession of the earth...lol

    Why do people find BB not speaking a unique thing? The one robot so many people recognize and has produces so many toys is mute. Yeah, uh, very unique.

    I say give this dude some lines already.

    I remember the first episode from "The Hub", I was hoping to hear him talk, and then I find out he's also using the freaking radio.. lame.

    I think it's time for the character to be able to talk, but I also agree with those who say the voice actor used at the end of the first movie didn't fit.

    It sounded far too "old" and proper for the Autobot who "peed" on Simmons, tried to hook up Sam and Mikaela, used "check on the rep, second to none" when introducing himself, and scanned a stylish Camaro when Mikaela commented on his choice of car mode.

    I hope he gets his voice back and says "Permission to speak, sir. You know, I've always hated you Sam. And if you call me "B" one more time, I will make a blood Omelette out of you."
