I'd say "we have no immediate plans, busy with movie stuff for now, go for it and do the set." Then do a mass release of the one out of five decos that's likely to sell a couple of years down the road, maybe with a few token changes, alongside some other mould reuses -- because that's the nice thing about being the license originator.

Let someone else do the work of establishing that there's a probable market. Sound business strategy.
