The one thing about the new one that I (and a lot of others) don't like is the how the folded wings are weirdly squared off. On such an elegant model it seemed a jarring, rough way to handle wing folding, and gives the feeling it has cardboard wings.


This is pretty much what ruins the model for me :c

Same, once I noticed it, I can never unsee how the bottom half of the wings/feathers are just....chopped off. :/ And they did such nice, elegant individual feathers on the classic models.

(posted these in another thread some time ago, but I figured they could be put here again)

Same. I like the new models, but the cut-off wings just ruin it for me. Once I noticed it, I couldn't unsee it. Hopefully, they'll someday fix the model so it isn't like that.

I agree, the flat-backed wings are straaaange. Though maybe it isn't so noticeable on a pet hippogriff since they don't really fly? (Or do they, I dunno, I heard they stand and I heard they hover so I'm honestly unsure...)

100% agreed,

Even the random giant feathers and then large masked holes on the new ones, colour and concept are good, but the clipped wings just look so so bad. It's might not be so bad I guess as a pet, but as a mount... I would love to use mine more often, but it's pretty much the only part you see when flying, it's super off putting :|

What I'd really like? them to do a true to form update on them, like they did for the corehound. The same beaks, wings, colours, just smooth out the model and a higher rez/detailed skin. THAT, would make me very happy :)

To be fair, the clipped wings could be a good excuse for why your pet can't fly, for those who are into stories. :P

Urgh - yeah not a fan of the clipped wings at all!

Is it like that on the mounts that use this model?

I have never been a fan of the "grand" hippogryphs anyway. I don't like the head/eyes for some reason.......

Yeah, it is. Has been that way since the RAF mount was introduced. I always figured it was a glitch but... no one's fixed the sparklepony's hoof in however long THAT'S been, so it's unsurprising it hasn't been seen to.
