Excellent work finding that! Thanks for posting the solution too
I have issues with the way this was handled. These two themes were both themes which I had purchased because of their style and functionality. They were at one point approved by themeforest and then removed without any notification to the developer nor the MANY people who had purchased the theme with the intent of receiving ongoing updates through the Themeforest network as is a feature customers expect when buying a theme. This is extremely poor business practice on behalf of Themeforest. If you don’t like a theme after you have approved it, other steps should be made to ensure that those customers who spent money to purchase a theme are protected.
First, notification, is an absolute MUST.
Second, a change in policy should affect future themes and older themes should be grandfathered into a policy.
It is bad business practice to do this to both your customers and developers.I’m no longer impressed with the concept I had once thought so highly of from Themeforest.
Apologies for any inconvenience. We can’t continue to sell a theme with an issue like this, so we remove it temporarily while contacting the author to fix the issue, and then once fixed the theme will be available for sale again.
Assuming the theme author fixes the issue, you’ll continue to get the updates etc. that you were hoping for.
I’m looking into this now, and will update you soon on the official word.
Also, remember, just because you “can” do something currently, does not mean you’re “allowed” to do it, nor does it mean you’ll be able to do it in the future.

If Theme Check itself isn’t working, trying disabling all plugins and using the default theme, and then gradually re-enable things to see which is breaking the site.
