If going by usual trends of Encore (the later pieces that is) one either see these scenarios: 1) Specialty shops & dealers will start clearing these after awhile because of the lack of interest/sales. Collectors will then swamp in for the kill. This is unhealthy for the Encore line. 2) Specialty shops & dealers brought in "limited" amount of stocks because of weak preorders & these quickly soldout, the aftermarket value will then balloon to a new height. This is unhealthy to the collectors. Whichever scenario it is, we might run into another instance whereby Encore line will again, enter hiatus mode & not resurface again for another 5 years.
