    Alright, I was thinking that with the huge variety of TF lines out there, it might be a good idea to catalogue the various names... particularly since Cybertron and Classics are out... So, let's start from the beginning

    TF - Transformers
    G1 - Generation 1
    G2 - Generation 2
    HM - Headmasters
    TM - Targetmasters
    AM - Action Masters
    MM - Micromasters
    PM - Powermasters
    MF - Masterforce
    V - Victory
    MW - Machine Wars
    BW - Beast Wars
    BW2 - Beast Wars 2
    BW Neo - Beast Wars Neo
    BW Metals - Beast Wars Metals
    TM - Transmetals
    TM2 - Transmetals 2
    BM - Beast Machines
    BWR - Beast Wars Returns
    RiD - Robots in Disguise
    CR - Car Robots
    Arm - Armada
    ML - Micron Legend
    E - Energon
    SL - Superlink
    Cyb - Cybertron
    GF - Galaxy Force
    CL - Classics
    Alt - Alternators
    BT - Binal Tech
    BTA - Binal Tech Asterick
    U - Universe
    TIT - Titanium
    HoC - Heroes of Cybertron
    LoC Legends of Cybertron
    MP - Masterpiece
    WST - World's Smallest Transformers
    KO - Knockoff
    RM - Robot Masters
    CS - Commemorative Series
    THS - (Hybrid convoys) whatever this spells out to I have no idea
    KP - Kiss Players
    SCF/PVC - those things that don't transform... you know what I mean
    BWX - Beast Wars 10th Anniversary
    MC - Minicons
    WWI - War Within (also sometimes known as TWW for the anally retentive)


    Those are all the ones that come to mind. Any others?

    Oh, and I'm well aware that I put TM for Targetmasters and Transmetals... sue me :p

    Nah, I think that's ok - you can usually which is being implied from the context in which it is used anyway. THS is 'Takara Hybrid Style', to the best of my knowledge. And BTA is 'Binaltech Asterisk'.

    Unless you start adding things like TFTM, FFoD, CoTP, and MTMTE, I think that's a pretty complete list of the most commonly used acronyms.

    There's also SCF for the pvc figs, which I think is 'Super Collection Figure' or something. Others can correct if that's not right. Not used very often, as I think most of us just say 'pvc'. And TFC I've seen for the bookstyle reissues, but no idea if that's commonly used or not.

    Don't forget 'Asterisk'.

    'Astrix' sounds like something you'd get in Vegas. :D

    We so need a new one for Titanium...

    As for Beast Wars 10th Anniversary, I much prefer going Roman and abbreviating it BWX

    I usually use TGM for Targetmasters and TM for Transmetals. I've also seen Eng and UNI for Energon and Universe.

    I'd also add...

    AM for Action Masters
    MC for Mini-cons
    MM for Micromasters
    WWI for War Within

    for Armada, Energon, Cybertron, and Universe, I refer to them as TFA, TFE, TFC, and TFU

    everything else I agree with but I think Classics could use a better one (I cant think of one myself)

    YES! See, Cheebs knows what I'm talking about.

    How, which do you like better, the big TITs or the small TITs?

    I dunno. The little TITs are just so cute, and the big TITs can be too heavy and sag under their own weight. However, you can manipulate the big TITs into more positions and forms than the small TITs. So I gotta' go with the big TITs.



    Whee!!! Again, I get to type all that and not be joking. :D

    Lol. I could do this all day.

    Hasbro gave Optimus Prime more TITs than the beasts. Seems to me it would be better if it was the other way around.
