Here is what happened:

I went poking around today (by chance) on HH's website, and saw that the Beast was listed as "In Stock" so I immediately called HH. They pulled up my order, and immediately shipped it. They said they are going to get to the outstanding orders as quickly as they can. Essentially, it was just luck.
I also live 1 day's shipping from their distribution center in Ontario, CA, so that also speeds it up!

edit:

I just ran the tracking number, and if HH delivers it to fedex tonight, tomorrow is the anticipated delivery!!!!

In other words, you butt in front of the rest of us waiting patiently for them to ship our backorders.

Wow, seriously?

Then I'll especailly enjoy telling you this. When I called HH, I also asked for the original shippnig charge to be waived based on their current promotion for free shipping... which they happily did. I love HH's customer service!
Oh, and when I went to to track the package this morning, here is what I see on FedEx's page right now: "Dec 9, 2011 7:55 AM -- On FedEx vehicle for delivery -- HENDERSON, NV"

Enjoying being patient, I'll enjoy flying my Beast 3D tonight.

My new Beastie

Well, I got home and unboxed her, pics attached. So far she looks great. Feels a tad bit heavier than the previous beast, and the color shade seems slightly more red than before... but maybe thats just me. The servos DEFINITELY look different, seem to have a larger motor and a longer travel tube.
It looks like I'm not going to get to fly her today since my daughter's birthday party is in a few hours, but I'll take her to the field with me tomorrow, and get another club member to take some video.

I took a short video of the gyros working here in the house,: http://youtu.be/S3c3xbPKPws
