    CHUG (Also known as CHUGURTS and I'm sure there's another one) is an awkward fan acronym for the Classics series of updated characters. It stands for Classics-Henkei-Universe-Generations-United-Reveal the Shield.

    Personally, I just call them all Classics.

    Absolutely no idea what the other one means.


    One you might also see around at the moment is TF PRIDE or PRIDE, that one refers to the mainline Transformers Prime toys.

    "Chogretsu" sounds like somebody trying to make a pseudo-Japanese word out of CHUGRtS.

    Seconded. The inherent silliness of the name aside, it 's going to become outdated and unnecessary come wave 3 or 4.

    With each new line creating an ever-longer forced acronym sounding more and more like a Klingon Rabbi cursing after drinking a heavy milkshake, I'm more inclined to just go with "Classics" for an over-arching line name.

    Why should it be called anything else?

    To try and push an overused and unnecessary acronym in a fandom that already has too many? (GPS, RiD, UT, RTS, etc)

    I think the WFC and FoC figures make a pretty good case for using "Generations" since the meta-line now includes characters too new to be "classic."

    Technically the characters are old classic characters though, just with the newer bodies.

    Yes and no, since it's also the history of TF Prime, supposedly.

    That's what they tell us. But WFC is G1.
