Would it be wise to buy a new MP 8 Core now? Or worth the wait for the i7? I hate to go on rumors, but if they are out in jan-feb it would be worth the wait. I would hate to spend $3000 and 2 weeks later a better model be released.

I would wait. Nehalem-based MacPros are going to be out sometime early next year. If you need an 8 core machine you want as much bandwidth as you can get, and Nehalem will deliver that. So unless you really need it right now, hang on a bit.
