    Anybody see Black Shadow? I got a friend looking for one, but he wants it with nice paint. He saw one a month ago and the silver paint was all scratched and sloppy.

    Also, I have seen remnants of the seaspray wave. Lots of leftover cosmos on pegs.

    Wait, how do you know our names? We've met before in person? Remind me again who you are? I don't mean for these sentences to make me sound like an ass/douche, I just know a lot of local robot and Transformers collectors and I'm trying to figure out who's who here.:p 

    Still haven't seen Seaspray btw, but recently I've been finding new figures broken in the sealed packages. Oh noes! I saw a voyager titans optimus with a broken head yesterday at target in Smithfield. The screwhole that holds the face to the titanmaster's back was stripped and cracked.

    Hahahah sorry about that, I don't know if I've ever actually met you in person, but my names Adam I'm friends with your brother (not sure if he has mentioned me before). He came with me to RI comic con last year with the extra ticket that I had.

    Anyways, he mentioned this was your TFW handle, haha

    Adam, his childhood friend? Or are you an Adam from the collectiondx/robot Japan community? We've got too many robot fans with the same names! Just off the top of my head I know 3 different Josh's, 2 Erics, 2 Matts, 2 Dave's, and 4 Toms! It gets confusing unless last names are used in conversation.:confused:

    No worries! I am Adam the childhood friend, from church (st. As).

    Hadn't seen him in a few years but ran into each other at RI comic con auction a few years back and rekindled friendship via TF!

    Ah! Now I know which Adam I'm talking to! Hello! Hows the family?

    As for Transformers, I have been buying less of Hasbro domestic and more of Takara or older Hasbro & Takara figures (see signature). Current high American store prices do not justify the domestic Hasbro toys when for the same price or even less, I can buy the Takara equivalent that features more paint, usually better colors, and extra features too or an older Hasbro/Takara figure that has more paint, plastic, articulation, and features for less money than their current offerings. It sucks when you go to a toy store today and 90% of the toys for sale are not as good as the stuff you bought 5-10 years ago.

    Well, Seaspray's wave is out, but Seaspray has been picked from them. I think we saw 8 cosmos, so that's 2 cases of the wave we saw with all the seasprays gone. He's gonna be the Combiner Wars Shockwave of Titans return I tell ya.

    I knew he is out because I grabbed a Cosmos myself recently and saw people up in MA near Boston finding Seaspray.

    That said, I have a feeling you are right, especially since I had to go look up Combiner Wars Shockwave since I had no idea one was even released!

    Either way, keep an eye out for me -- I know I've mentioned it to your brother too and I know you guys do more searching than I get a chance to

    I snagged a lone Seaspray at the Lincoln Target on Monday.

    It was legit sitting there by itself on a peg, no other Titan Returns figures to be seen and a mess of movie toys.

    Talk about being surprised when I came around the corner to the aisle haha
