    hi, recently purchased power surge bumblebee and sideswipe, when I press their heads they make like generic noises but don't talk like the ones on YouTube. Wondering what I need to do to make then talk. Any ideas? Thank you

    I'm guessing you're based in the UK, or at least a country that's not the USA?

    The sound chips on non USA Transformers have been neutered for years, without any speech aside from simply saying trade marked names like 'Bumblebee' or 'Optimus Prime', so any TF's you buy from outside the USA only have sound effects and their own name. And unfortunately there's nothing you can do about it, aside from importing the USA versions of the toys.

    Sorry.

    Oh and welcome to the boards BTW! Hope you survive the experience.
