    Not the toys- I am pretty indifferent to them.

    But when I see PRID at first glance, I think I see PRICK.

    I do find PRID annoying, so I go with TFP instead.

    That reminded me of the trilingual packaging Robots Camuflados but no "i" so no PR(i)C.

    TFP for me - I don't see a need to differentiate between First Edition and the 'main' line, given that FE was so short-lived. If I see someone referring to a toy that's had versions in both lines, I assume they meant the main line unless they explicitly refer to FE.

    I will take PRID over CHUG anyday.

    But thanks for making me think of PRICK everytime I come here, now.

    It's the Transformers Prime toy line. I don't see why it needs to be called anything else.

    They see people using acronyms. They be hating.

    Doesn't matter what you call anything, someone will get a bug in their ass about it.

    Folks calling TF Prime toys PRIDE or PRIDE detracts from my enjoyment of the line and I demand that people cease and desist! I am super serial, you guys.
