THIS IS JUST A RUMOR. IT IS NOT DEFINITE.
Bittersweet news... a anonymous trusted source told me that Samantha and Addy aren't retiring. Instead, they will be "cubed", limited to one small display in the flagship stores and online. Take this with a grain of salt- Felicity has been treated like this, but I don't think two popular dolls would have a Felicity treatment and instead be retired. I'm glad thay they will be still available, though.
