I don't think he needs his shikai/bankai with the mask to own.
He owns anyways.
you saw what he did to grimmy when they first met.
1 Cero and grimmy was half dead.
I'm willing to bet my pants that if he'd go bankai+mask he'd flatten Karakura and do aizen's job for him...
somehow, i dont think this thread is in the right place. This should go under questions, right?
anyway, to answer your question, i don't think bankai takes away any of the power. look at ichigo, he's just fine.
and shinji would flatten karakura with bankai + mask.
He's never had to use it, that's why he hasn't.
Shinji doesn't use his shikai/bankai because Tite Kubo said, "No I don't want Shinji to use his shikai/bankai because I want to save it for later to be revealed in a more epic situation."
I kind of find myself hoping that the Vaizard will turn out to be Aizen's allies. Maybe they'll cut a deal with him to use the hokeymalokey to cure/stabilize/improve their powers. that would totally take care of where in the hell is Tite gonna pull enemies MORE powerful than the espada for the next arc. Then captain Shinji will reveal his bankai against Ichigo, and the Manga will go to the next level. Ichigo will have to fight other characters who can do Bankai+Mask like himself.
For the next arc I think Aizen already has the vasto lorde lined up ready to become the new espada. Aizen's always ahead. He's like Ozymandias from Watchmen. Ichigo will dramatically say that they can't let him kill the spirit king or whoever and Aizen will inform him that he's a few minutes too late.
I don't think the Vaizards will team up with Aizen since there's probably some sentiment left in them about the Gotei 13.
That, and they don't seem to be too approving of his actions in the first place. Aizen wins - everyone else dies.

I think Shinji and the other Vizard are far more comfortable fighting with their masks rather than their shinigami powers.
Though it is interesting that since four of them were Captains, there are four new bankais to look forward to.
