Whether he'd be open to owning his company or not, I do want him back in the game in some capacity.

I can tell you the game has changed and doing what he did with Marvel is much more complicated and expensive as you now deal directly with Disney. The licensing costs must be huge .

I do wish he had a hand in the TH model for the SP line. I would have liked smaller bases (Like he did) so they do not take up as much room and could have teams assembled and not have a such a large footprint. I love the TH stuff. but with the sweeping wind blown capes they take up as much room, or more, on a shelf as my 1:4 pieces.

Fabric capes > Sculpted capes

I really appreciate the sculpted capes...but they would have looked just as good gently blowing in the breeze as opposed to whipped out in a gale force wind. Batman and Martian Manhunter's capes are huge on the TH statues. I have to carefully place them into my Detolf's so I do not bump the statue on either side.

Yeah, but look what you can do with a cloth cape.

Thanks to the success of the MCU I bet they are but from what I hear he can afford it.

If Bowen does return I think he should go after the G.I. Joe license. I think he'd nail the aesthetic for the nostalgic collectors.

Get some bigger shelves. Stop pissing on creativity because your detolf isn't big enough.

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

I can agree with you Jeremy I wouldn’t mind if the bases were slightly smaller. Now I wouldn’t want him to go as small as Bowen did in the later years where he just did a black circle but I don’t think they need to be quite the size of the Catwoman base either (though that base was pretty spectacular looking). I do have to say though I do like how the bases are individually tailored to the character that is standing on them.

Wow....anger much?

Never said I didn't like them since I have bought them all. I also didn't say they wouldn't fit in the Detolf...because they do. Just wish some of the bases were a little smaller or billowing capes didn't make the statue twice as wide as it needed to be. I'm so very very sorry my opinion triggered you.
