It was a GREAT run by Randy. Unfortunately, I believe it's all over.

I went to a general store. They wouldn't let me buy anything specifically.

Yup, it's unfortunate, but we have to come to terms with the fact that Randy is probably done when it comes to starting up a new company.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Randy started up a new company I’m just very curious whether it would include a Marvel license.

I guess we really won’t know until we hear from him and it is quite possible maybe he hasn’t mentioned or said anything because he might not wish to ruin any sort of negotiations that are happening or he might not be allowed to speak about it until a certain point

From what I understand from his interviews, he invested in real estate after his divorce and he's been living comfortably without having to grind like during his Bowen Design/Marvel years. As time passes, I get the impression that he has no interest in restarting BD/producing statues. I know he's done a some personal work and few private commissions, which he showed last year in some YouTube videos (one of the videos here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jyIKt66_Br4). Here's another video from last year, in which he talks about miscellaneous topics (inlcuding a tour of his home and some private works): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqUbTRH65HU.

The collectible landscape has changed a lot in the past five years, with tons of companies producing products on anything and everything, plus lots of unlicensed ("custom") statues, and 3D printable files that can be purchased for under $20 each. Randy has mentioned that if BD were to return then it likely wouldn't be like during his Marvel days, due to the way the industry has changed and his motivation.

As more time passes without any updates, I'm assuming BD won't be back. As I mentioned above, I think he's happy and comfortable now, and he doesn't want to grind anymore.

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

Sounds like a fair assumption - it was great while it lasted and my collection is still something I enjoy and still adjust the display regularly.

well, last least K-Bros have been very busy designing & sculpting pieces for Sideshow, PCS & XM. They're the next best thing after Randy

seems like the K-Bros landed the gig that would be perfect for Randy...producing and sculpting while not being tied down running the business.

Aside from retro Cable, which isn't getting cheaper. I've got all I desire.

I’ve been sucked into the Bowen busts now. Damn things are getting more pricey by the day it seems.
