Over the past few years it's just become apparent to me that they have had the license too long. They've gotten greedy and lazy and don't seem to have a clue how to effectively manage the brand anymore. A younger, hungrier company could really work wonders to liven things up. Someone who is passionate about the creative opportunities and not hung up on the $%^&* bean counting.
Maybe, but a younger, hungrier company could also have years worth of growing pains that would frustrate collectors all the same. Meanwhile, you'd probably have consistency gaps in terms of sculpt and quality. Additionally, a new company is probably going to start from scratch in terms of what they're making, so it's not like you're going to get a break in the constant roll out of classic characters. It'd be all Han, Luke, Leia, Vader, Maul, Obi-Wan all over again.
