Loving the hippo mounts, especially the little roof/umbrella you get to sit under :D
But yeah, the mouth buggs me a bit. Just a bit.

Awesome hippo mount confirmed.. and huge. Uses Direhorn skeleton. Not sure about the mountspecial, but otherwise awesome.
Eh.. not a fan of it.. looks cool from the side, but from the angle you usually see it, meh.

I got my arch bug mount a while back.. I'll probably be riding that in Draenor most likely.

Now it's been pointed out, I do kinda wonder how the hippo doesn't drown underwater ;)

But I really love the overall look and that canopy looks really cool on the mount. Really love it.

I saw the new wolves with slightly different accessories/armor at Adriacraft...

More here (will need to scroll down a bit): http://www.adriacraft.net/

It doesn't look bad at all, especially the shadow one... but I do prefer the ones without the helm/armor. Wonder which we'll get, if not both perhaps? This being the "armored" version.

Nicely spotted! They have some lovely model shots up. Better than MMO-C's I think.

Derailing for a sec cause omFG I AM CRYING

AAHHHHHHHAAHAHAHHAHAAAA

Kay, kay, these guys

I drew something like this a long time ago for a RP I was doing on a forum with someone

RICKYYYYYYYY (his name in the RP was Ricky lmao)

I can't breeeeaaaaathe omfg aaaaaaaaaaaaaaahahahahhahahhahaaaaaaaaaa.

And sweet baby jebus I need dem Sporebats and Talbuks. The Talbuks as mounts again yeeep yep yep they are gorgeous. As for the wolves, I'm in sore dissapoint at the, again, unnecessary armor. I'd really like for us to have the option to buy both the lightly armored and heavily armored because it's getting really tiresome seeing gorgeous models clamped head to toe in solid armor. Also really, really not liking the color choice of the white worg's metal helmet and accessories. That is definitely not a flattering color for my eyes and I was getting really hyped to have a gorgeous, retextured white worg mount since white wolves/worgs are my favorite color of that species in the game. Worgens too although I really do not like it on the playable variety, but rather the old world and northrend worgen.

Yeah.. I'm hoping the less-armored versions will be available too. I'm excited about any wolf mounts, but I am in love with the ones without the helms - all of them, though the shadow and brown ones most of all, and I will be very disappointed if they aren't in game.

I don't like the armored wolf mounts much, really. There's one thing that breaks the model for me, and it's the head armor piece. It's just been put there on top and it seems to be light enough so the mane can keep it up without even flattening. It has absolutely no support, with the straps just hanging there like that, and absolutely no reason to stay on the wolf's head after even a slightest move.
I don't think I'd ride one :/

Yeah, I don't like it either. Everyone spazzed about it but I think it looks horrid. Nothing wrong with the model itself or textures or anything, but it just doesn't appeal. :/

I like the mount version. The gold makes it stand out more and adds a lot to the design. Without it the model looks... bland. The head armor on the mount (while a bit too bulky when looking head-on) covers the weird shape of its skull too. So yeah... Love the mount, not really a big fan of the non-mount.

Is that how the old ground mount is going to look? If so, I don't like it.

No... that's the model for the 'flying version' of Anzu, the mount for the WoD collector's edition...

This skin may have been in the database since Cata, but I was happy to see the green bat mount model appear in the database... so maybe they're thinking it as a useable mount.
There's the non-armoured version (which hasn't been used at all for a mount yet):
http://wod.wowhead.com/#modelviewer:1:52653:0:10+0
... and the armoured version, which is a colour variant of the store mount:
http://wod.wowhead.com/#modelviewer:1:55150:0:10+0

I personally don't think they're nearly as pretty as the silver one, but it's cool anyway :)

(Of course they may just be intended for NPC mounts, we have no idea at this point)

I hope they don't add those mounts. They would make the one sold in the store much less special and useless to Blizzard from a financial perspective.

As someone who has the store bat mount, I'd love to see the green bat mount in-game!

Actually, the one I linked to was the NON-armoured green bat mount, which is a model which hasn't been used in the game yet.

I updated my post above to include both the non-armoured and armoured versions as they both appear in the database now.
