From what I've gather through extensive research over the past 5 minutes LEGO is the correct collective noun everywhere in the world EXCEPT the United States. Tip is not an acronym or backronym because it has/had an existing etymology. Otherwise every word in the world could be turned into backronyms. A correct backronym is formed purposefully, not through happenstance. I've also heard To Insure Proper Service as a supposed backronym for TIPS, but this is also incorrect for the same reason.
