It could also be that scalpers have backed off these dolls, or they're being pickier about what dolls might make more to flip. The 17" Cinderella took 2 months to sell out on preorder, so this isn't so wild. The first designer wave caused fervor among collectors more than scalpers. My biggest hope now is they use some of these new doll molds for the 17" line. I really want a proper animated Alice and QoH. I'm not fond of the Snow-White-in-Wonderland dolls that came out in 2010.
