Welcome back, Most of the stuff is still the same. BLAST ended up getting acquired but to whom I am not sure. The dye loader is probably the Rotor?
You have a new player in the big market GI Sportz who might be on everyone's crap list right now because of some lawsuits going on about paint. GI Sportz also bought Empire, the people who make the mini/axe/prophecy(Z2.)
You still have Virtue except they really stepped away from the board game and now make some spectacular products(Hoppers(Spire/260/Spire 3) and a new mask the Vio!)
I am not sure when Smart parts threw in the towel but that was probably right around the time you left.
You also have DLX who makes the luxe, I can't say much on them.
Here are probably the better high end markers of the top of my head by company
1.Victus(Spool? see Bob Long insight)
1:Vanquish GT(2.0, 1.5, 1)
I really know nothing about BL.
