    I've seen this acronym show up a lot in the Junkion Exchange, but I've no clue what it's supposed to stand for.

    I feel rather stupid asking, but WHAT DOES "CHUG" MEAN?

    To gulp down beer quickly, like at a party.

    It's an acronym for bots that came from the classics/united/generations lines & basically look like updates to G1/older shit. I don't remember what the H is supposed to stand for (maybe Henkei), but yeah.

    At any rate, don't feel stupid for asking. Just reserve that feeling for when you start using it (the word CHUG) in every day conversation.

    Due to this, as well as being a terrible sounding acronym, I hate CHUG. it sounds like crap, and makes no sense due to new lines of the same continuity.

    Ill just keep calling them Classics.

    Didn't First Aid say something like "mind if I sit around for a while and chug down a few sips of oil?" ???

    CHUG sounds a hell of a lot better than Japan’s NICOPA or “Nice Intelligence Convenience Original Pass.” Who in the hell came up with that? If you’re still wondering what the hell NICOPA is supposed to be, it’s a commuter pass which can be used with city busses, subways and trains.

    Japan really needs to trying to use English in place of its own language and it should probably stop trying to use acronyms too, since the populous doesn’t quite understand (or can’t be bothered to learn) how to make/use them right.

    This is not an acronym, but I just love UCC’s (Ueshima Coffee Company) company slogan,Good Smile Coffee. I’m still not quite sure what that means.

    Animated Shockwave should be the mascot of Classics figures.

    Because you know, Chugway.

    Agreed. We live in the ''Lol'' era, where people feel the need to be lazy and make EVERYTHING an acronym

    It's short for Chuggington, a cartoon for kids about talking trains. I think.
