It's a known bug and not an intended change. We plan to address this in 6.1.

6.1 PTR Patch Notes
New Site Feature: 3D Modelviewer Redone and Pandaren Added!
2012/04/11 at 9:06 PM
The ability to view models in 3D has always been a highly popular Wowhead feature. For some time now, we've had the ability to click on almost anything in the database and see its 3D model in Flash or Java. However, it's been overdue for some bug fixes and improvements over these past few months.
That's why I'm really happy to announce that we have
a brand new Flash 3D model viewer
on Wowhead as of today! Alayton has been hard at work for some time now on rewriting the viewer and we're launching it today.
Here are some of the new features:
Flash Modelviewer Instead of Java
Make sure you have updated to the latest version of Flash; if your version is outdated, it may not load properly!
Debugging and support is a lot easier this way as we only have to focus on one platform
More people use and prefer Flash so it made sense to use it over Java
Significantly faster load times
Improved particle effects and details
A new race option: Pandaren!
Pandaren are very much still in beta, so some emotes and armor may not work properly (helmets do not work on them right now, for example). They still look awesome, though!
tentacle laden legendaries
, you can see the new modelviewer anywhere--just click on the "View in 3D" button to the top left of the quick fact box. So go ahead and check it out and let us know what you think! Be sure to report any bugs you encounter as well, as we will be spending all week tweaking it based on user feedback!
