No, the original company I was working for BCI, went out of business. The subs for FIGHT! DRAGON were already done, which is why Mill Creek released it, after their acquired BCI's holdings. No work was done on SILVER MASK, so its currently in limbo.

Glad you enjoyed it — I really recommended this and IRON KING to BCI, and I'm glad we could get them out on the North American market for the first time!

While 99.9% of all Japanese superheroes are masked and suited, they are not all like Ultraman; there are probably more human-sized superheroes than there are Ultraman-sized. But, to give you an understanding of just how popular and long-lasting and ingrained these tokusatsu shows are in the Japanese psyche — between 1971 and 1979, over 63 (that's right, sixty-three!) such shows were produced and broadcast on Japanese television. That might give you a basic idea.

Kind of like Godzilla movies, eh, Inferno Rodan? I mean, Godzilla, Gamera, Guilala, Gappa, etc. — they're all the same. You've seen on giant monster trampling on a city, and you've seen them all, right? How could you have seen the "vast majority" of these shows? You couldn't have. You're simply assuming. Anyhow, I would imagine that you've also not seen RED BARON, because anyone who had, can see that it doesn't fit that stereotyped pattern you seeming imply that all of these shows adhere to. At any rate, RED BARON is pretty much wall-to-wall action, and since it's all giant robots, they don't have to come out only at the end of the show — there are fights in the beginning, middle, and end of some episodes (if you don't have the climatic battle, why stick around watching until the end?).
