Okay... Encore is a reissue line created by Takara Tomy. It is not a separate group, such as e-HOBBY or even Hobby Town.
And e-HOBBY is a collaborator, and not owned by by Takara Tomy. So while Takara Tomy does make the figures through their factories, e-HOBBY has to pay them something to allow their stuff to exist.
Hence the exclusive pricing, versus the mass production pricing of TOMY's Encore line.
