Is this happening on the Website too?
No. Only in certain stores.
I called CS and asked about ordering online, and two different reps said that if you try to order online you'll get lined eyebrows and the old hairstyle. Not sure how true this is, but I'm not going to try myself to find out! I guess I'll wait until October :(
Most people won't care, and won't even notice the change (or know there was one). The only people who will care are collectors, and they've made provisions to deal with that.
That is really sad, they are kinda pulling a fast one in my opinion. It isn't just the eyebrows, the skin and hair looks different the new Addy too.
There have been comparison photos from people with all sorts of older Addys (1993 up to this year), and they've all confirmed that the skin is the same and the hair is probably the same.
OMG I was the person who commented on the post
I spoke with my PS at the St. Louis American Girl Place. Beforever Addy will be available at my local store in October. Another associate told me that there were problems (wig) with the new Addy so that's why only the lined brows are available. However, the current Addy in our store has a different complexion but the same wig and brows.. I personally don't get how the Addy has a new skin tone with the same hair and eyebrows but whatever. The new ones will be here in October and I'm looking forward to seeing her in person. :)
