2010 Mattel Special Offer: A "Refurbed" House

Oh, Em Gee! Could it be that they are re-issuing the classsic home we all love? Here is the ad Mattel has recently put out. I tried to confirm this notion and the website was down. Rumor has it that it is not a re-produced house, but rather a refurbished house retailing for $2,000. That is, just one that they have 'redone'. I have re-done 5 of these in the past year and average around $165 plus shipping for a complete house, no box. I am curious as to Mattel's process used to refurbish one of these beauties and wonder how flawless the final product is. It looks like they are either test marketing a reissue or just offering a fluke for the heck of it. Any info from the readers would be greatly appreciated. In the meantime, Oh how sweet it is to be validated on one's obsession. I still say they should at least reissue spare parts like the patio triangles, closet, plants, windows and doors.
