    Is this true? Has this been confirmed somewhere?

    I think the whole radiotalk thing has been played out, and has pretty much made him a non-character. If he does talk though, they should get someone else. Nothing against Mark Ryan, but "old british buy" is not what I imagine any iteration of Bumblebee speaking like.

    Yeah, I do hope he speaks, the radio gimmick is getting stale.

    Bay should give him a girl's voice and claim he's been a fembot all this time. His male voice at the end of BayFormers 1 could be explained away as being a glitch of his damaged vocal system.

    No, most likely not. Follow Bay logic. Radio thing is cute, plays well with women and children. Plus he gets to be a varitable jukebox of pop culture quotes from every memorable personality since the dawn of recording sound.

    That being said, if it were up to me, I'd say enough is enough. Let a little asteroid come down with a tag on it with Cybertronian text reading "Priority Mail for: Autobot Ratchet". Ratchet opens it, and lo and behold, it's Bumblebee's new voice. And it sounds just like Dan Gilvezan!

    I hope he has a few lines, and the rest through his radio.

    He should talk, would differentiate this movie from the last two. The music is okay I guess when he is in car mode.

    Don't think it's been confirmed yet whether Bumblebee will be speaking normally or if he will continue to talk through the radio.

    I would love for Bumblebee to talk normally again, but I'm quite content with his radio speak.

    The radio talk thing has become such a part of his character that I doubt it'll stop completely even if he does have his own voice. But I hate the voice Mark Ryan gave him so I very much hope any dialogue he may get is limited or voiced differently.

    Bumblebee speaking would take precious dialogue time away from the important non-robot characters. So no.

    I'd like a mix of both radio and normal speech. I'd love to have Mark Ryan as Bee like in the ROTF games - a veteran of the war, who is a responsible adult - just to shove it up Hasbro's ass and show them Bumblebee isn't always "joking around, always getting into trouble."

    No, as much as I love Animated, do NOT make him with TFA's Bee's personality. He was way too much of a smartass annoying hot shot.

    he should talk normal when he's around Optimus and it's supposed to be something serious. And when he's with Sam, Leo, Twins and Mikaela to talk in radio.

    Indeed. Even Stephen Hawkin can 'talk' better than Bumblebee, and that just makes 'Bee's speech problem all the more stupid.

    Bumblebee: "Speak? I can do more than speak. I can sing!"

    *huge musical number where everyone dances*

    *somewhere a group of Junkions turn in their 1986 graves*

    I hope he does, though I wouldn't mind some radio speak either.

    Maybe a 75-25 split.
    75% actual real dialogue. 25% radio stuff for key comedic or excitement scenes, or even for wtf factor depending on what's happening.

    This. Needs. To. Happen. Preferably after the credits, and to thriller.
