Those who didn't find the first line of Justin Bieber dolls to be swoon-worthy enough are in luck. After the first wave of the pop star's collectible figures flew off of toy store shelves in December, a new set of Bieber dolls will be released in August -- this time with a more lifelike version of his signature swoop haircut.

Manufacturer The Bridge Direct, Inc. and merch company Bravado announced today (Feb. 8) that they'll first unveil the Justin Bieber "Real Hairstyle" dolls from Feb. 13-16 at the American International Toy Fair, which runs in New York on the same weekend that Bieber's 3D movie, "Never Say Never," hits theaters.

"When we introduced the first series of Justin Bieber dolls right before the holidays last year, the most frequent comment we heard from fans -- besides how much they love them -- was: 'Why doesn't the doll have Justin's hairstyle that you can comb?'," said The Bridge Direct's president, Jay Foreman in a statment. "We heard the fans loud and clear, and we're thrilled to be able to offer them the doll they've been waiting for later this year."

Unlike the original dolls, which "sang" the pop star's singles "Baby" and "One Less Lonely Girl," the new batch will play "U Smile and "Never Say Never." The Real Hairstyle dolls will also be dressed in some of Bieber's signature looks, such as a hooded vest over a white top, red pants and Converse sneakers (see photo above).

Also being unveiled at the Toy Fair: a Justin Bieber Rockin' Tour Bus and Concert Stage playset, featuring a toy tour bus that can be transformed into a concert stage, complete with lights and an MP3 dock.
