MSN013 (F-WWSJ - second for Emirates) was ferried from Toulouse to Hamburg last week. More surprising is the time it took them to do all the tests on it ... First engine run was on Monday, Rejected Take-Off on Tuesday, first flight on Wednesday and departure for Hamburg on Friday ... all was done in less than a week when it took 3 weeks for the previous plane, MSN012. http://www.pictaero.com/fr/pictures/picture,8650
Then, MSN016 (F-WWSM - plane for Emirates) was taken outside with a special paint, meaning it might stay outside for a while. http://www.pictaero.com/fr/pictures/picture,8137
F-WWEA (MSN009 - test plane) was washed before it left ot South America for FIDAE: http://www.pictaero.com/fr/pictures/picture,7882
MSN026 (F-WWSX - for Qantas) was moved from one position to another, which can be good news ... http://www.pictaero.com/fr/pictures/picture,7630
MSN022 (F-WWSS - another for Qantas) was taken outside for a day, probably while MSN026 was being moved. She didn't have her engines on though: http://www.pictaero.com/fr/pictures/picture,7631
Then, earlier last month, MSN006 (F-WWSC - 9V-SKC for Singapore Airlines) was delivered to the airline.
And, as said previously, MSN012 left Toulouse for Hamburg with over 2 weeks of tests.
Aside from that, F-WWDD (MSN004 - test plane) has finished her career as a test plane and will probably be put in a hall, for refurbishing. No precise news about that though.

Shouldn't this be in the second A380 delivery thread?

Cheers!  wave
