    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.

    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 ?

    :( 
    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.

    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. :confused2

    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 volume
    Chuff rate
    Chuff synchronization
    Chuff variance
    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....)

    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...
