There are companies losing their ass on Star Wars right now because they paid way too high a fee.
I understood what you were saying, just furthering the point.

All I'm saying is if you did it flawlessly right, you could sell 1000 easy.

Also you can't compare star wars to michael myers. There are so many star wars figures and statues over-saturating the market. There are zero michael myers statues besides HCG's attempt and smaller 1/8 stuff.
True but even with the minimal Halloween stuff on the market horror can be a hard sell even compared to things with multiple variations. So while I get what you're saying I also get companies, even Sideshow who sell a ton, being cautious with the risk factor.

Yah but sideshow has put out endless variations of freddy/jason before, and now leatherface is coming back.

We need a 1/4 Myers to boot. No better company to do it now.

Correct. A heavily weathered olive green. Almost made them look charcoal in some screenshots.

I still have my Neca Michael Myers 18 inch.. So far I think it's the best affordable Myers sculpt we got. Still waiting for a Michael statue that will surpass it?

The Howling statue is very impressive..Congrats Jerry and I'm eager to see what other horror franchises will be acquired in the future!
Tar-Man would be nice

The potential customer base for Star Wars dwarfs Halloween. I'd buy a perfect Myers though. Didn't give the HCG the time of day.

Kind of futile to speculate on sales numbers when we don't know how much the license is, and how many would need to be sold and at what price point for it to be worthwhile to Jerry.

He could easily maximize profits by using the same sculpt, same coveralls, add bullet holes to one, add blood tears to a second mask, boom H2 myers.

Yah it's a different stretch because of Dick Warlock but it'd still sell.

The Howling is my favorite werewolf movie so I'm interested for sure.

Holy ----, THANK YOU!!!

As far as Warewolf movies go you could always try and get Ginger Snaps license Jerry. I'm not sure if that would sell, but damn, the 1st movie is so good I re-watch it every Halloween. There is potential there if you ask me, although the creature itself was nothing special. If you could pull off some kind of Ginger/Warewolf split/dio maybe?

Anyway, I'm just dreaming, but boy-oh-boy that would be awesome.

and....I shall leave this here...
