Question regarding product attributes… need urgent assistance

I have partially managed to do what I want but came across a weird issue I can’t solve on my own…

I’m trying to call in the products’ attribute function

<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('product_type_data'?>
TWICE in the file catalog/product/view.phtml.

I want to do this because I want my customers to see the attribute options both on top, and bottom of the page. In short here’s my code structure,

<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('product_type_data'?>  //1st call (default)- works
some lines of code
<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('product_type_data'?> //2nd call - partially works

What works: A copy-set of product attributes appear on the page bottom

What does NOT work: Price-value does not update given any attribute option I select.

So I’m kind of stuck I really need to get this done ASAP.  If you’re in the US and could give me some time over the phone besides this, I’d really appreciate it. or pm me ur messenger ID.
