I was just on the Hypermaniac site and they have a new holiday image up on their front page with the words: "2008 New Dolls look forward to seeing you soon." I also checked their BBS and someone had asked when the dolls will be released and Hypermaniac responded with: "The new dolls are scheduled to be on sold in time for the coming year. 15 Jan 2008 at the absolute latest." I am so excited!!!
