Leekeworld to discontinue sales of Basic dolls

The Korean BJD manufacturer Leekworld has made a rather drastic announcement to discontinue the production of its basic dolls, beginning this month, June 2012.

You can read the original announcement here.

Leeke is apparently going the route of preorders and limited edition full-set dolls--along the likes of Rosenlied and Soom. Here is the schedule:

June 7: Orient Doll, DollLeeke-S, DollLeeke-C, DollLeeke-K will stop production.

June 14: DollLeeke-H, DollLeeke-N will stop production.

June 21: DollLeeke-D, DollLeeke-A will stop production.

June 28: DollLeeke-M, DollLeeke-L will stop production.

June 29: Leekeworld 8th Anniversary begins: New Limited dolls and new items are planned for this event.

I am curious to see how this will effect Leekeworld dealers. I would assume this means they are probably at least reducing (if not entirely eliminating) their dealers at this point, like so many other manufacturers have done in the past.

Also, I've always liked the Ojallin and Mabel sculpts--I probably should consider at least one this month!
