craggy, seeing how this is being made by TOMY, in collaboration with Super GT Racing, and appears to be sold through Toy Hobby (which is owned by TOMY)... They are not treating it as a mass-market release. They are treating it as a carefully selected character-to-team (hence the color schemes) series, with approval from those involved before selling them to Japanese Super GT Racing fans (as well as completists, GT-R fans, etc.). So in that respect, I think it is clear that they know what they are doing when it comes to handling this in the Japanese market.
Besides, being stingy with this line might be a good thing. Because it might mean that we may hear more about the Encore line getting some 2013 goodies, instead of how many Primes they can fit within this series.
