Clearly someone who doesn't watch The Great British Baking Show
Or Thomas the Tank Engine.
LOL, Great Meme and I get where you are coming from. I originally wrote a complete and sound defense of my word choice, but I decided to scrap it in favor of "Well Played, I walked right into that one". Hahahaha.
MFT Astrotrain is gonna be "a very good figure" for my collection.
Any news about release day?
Yea. I'm putting this guy in my potential to-buy list... and I only splurge on about 2 3p toys per year (the last being UT's Challenger not-Optimus The last knight)
The Polite meaning of ""Chuffed"" is "Pleased" I'm not sure if the singular would be anything other than a rude slang word for sexual parts though.
I suppose one could use Chuff instead of Chug in a pinch.
Then there is Chuffer - also sexual - but also harmless in the context of "Chuffer Train" which is slang for steam train. Perhaps Chuff is the new Slag Hmmm ?
i clicked on this hoping there was a mock up of the box and a shipping soon update.
Soon, I'm sure. We're pretty much in the "here's colored pics" MFT window.
Siege Astro is starting to ship though, if you're excited for him like I am.
You should have replied back, "What about now?"
Tagging them with this tonight:
You collecting WFC Siege or just an Astrotrain fan?
I must say, I never meant to start a war over words. What started as a mis-type ended up staying un-corrected because of a line I thought I read in an interview about Christian Bale's experience filming the Dark Knight Rises. I remembered that usage of the word "chuffed" as a negative thing(like "Steamed") and left the mistake in. I apologize if my ignorance has offended anyone. I am Dishonored and Embarrassed, and would like to get back to talking about MFT's upcoming Astrotrain figure.
Seriously, this is still a discussion?
"Chuff" is the accepted and well-used term for "the sound a steam locomotive makes", in the English language. Every model steam locomotive you find nowadays, will have the following parts/terms/settings:
Chuff switch/chuff sensor
Chuff settings ---British English
Programming an OEM Soundtraxx decoder for chuff - Model Railroader Magazine - Model Railroading, Model Trains, Reviews, Track Plans, and Forums --American English
"Chuffed" does mean angry etc in British English, but the root word "chuff" is used world-wide and refers to steam trains. (though I do wonder if it also applies to stationary steam engines, as they make the exact same sound....)
Sorry, but when I saw that, this popped in my head for some reason
Chuffed meaning steamed is an ironic useage but I've only ever heard it used as a positive
"Little Timmy was chuffed with his Christmas Presents" doesn't mean he disliked them.
Chuff is also the sound tigers make, but I think it's unlikely to be used in that reference/meaning here...
Just don't buy a 2nd hand astrotrain, you don't know if it's been up someone's chuff.
You guys know what "chuff" is backwards?
Separate names with a comma.
