looks like a derpy lion.http://chzderp.files.wordpress.com/2011/08/hurr-durr-derp-face-social-good-saturday-kenny-the-tiger.jpgUmm... yea! :) Nice find there! Seriously as one said, I need to see the mount in action before judging but... 1st impression is not that great.
Not to shabby!
I hope that the collectors edition and other physical editions that are bought online will ship a day ahead of time, so that we don't have to wait till late in the day to get them, while those who bought the digital edition have been able to play for hours. When Cata released, I had pre-ordered the collectors edition, and it didn't get there till 3:00 PM, about 15 hours after those who went for the digital edition could begin playing.
They really look like Chinese guardian lion statues to me. Though they do look like the derpy loin a lot to . Nice picture.
This is one of those pets I was hoping would be more feral looking. I love a cute pet as much as another, but if this pet is based on a foo/fu lion/dog, I would have loved to have seen a more ferocious looking pet. I know nothing is permanent right now, and tis my humble opinion only.
Ew. The pet is hideous, and the mount looks like an overweight cat/cow cross. Pass.
I was hoping the mount would be more of a Kirin to be honest.My hopes/wants for the CE were to have a Kirin and or a Vermillion bird. The pet looks like they took the pug, gave it anime eyes and a mane. the mount looks like a titan reject. it doesn't look like much effort went into it at all. It won't stop me from buying the CE, but I can't say anyone will see me riding around on that mount or that the pet will ever see the light of day. I hope it's not too late for them to change it.
DRAGON. MUST HAVE MAH DRAGONZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZPweez :3Come on, Theyres a pattern here people.Netherwhelp's Collar (have) DragonFrosty's CollarDragonLil' Deathwing (Have) dragon. DONT BREAK UP PATTERNS. I DONT LIEK IT. RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE.RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE.RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE. Have a nice Day :D
I have not bought previous CE releases, but I'm going to pick up this one. I enjoy adding to my mount and pet collections. I feel I can never have too many. Since they they don't take up bag space anymore, there isn't really a 'con' to buying the CE (other than the cash outlay and possibly a short delay to starting expansion-gameplay).This is just my opinion, of course. If you don't like them, you've got the option of NOT buying the CE. I find it odd that people have an option of buying the game with or without the extras, but many of them will still complain about something they are not required to purchase or use. I like. I'll buy. YMMV.
I want dragons back. Lil' Yu'Lon, maybe?A Sha-possessed dragon?JUST DO SOME KIND OF DRAGON.The Mount doesnt matter, we havent had a mount before.
Non-flying mount....not interested
I highly doubt they'll do that. The whole point of the collector's edition is about having the box and all the supplements, many of which are physical in nature (game cards, posters, mouse mat, DVDs, etc.).Of course many people get it because of the pets, but I don't think that falls in line with Blizzard's idea of a collector's edition. I was going to make an argument about "who collects digital things" then I realized I was an achievement junkie. :)
As long as they keep throwing the awesome hardcover art books in there, I'm gonna keep buying em.
The mount looks okay, but that pet is horrid. I'm a pretty serious pet collector, but this one will probably never be used. Not sure what they were going for, but I do not like it.
I don't much care what this CE comes with, this'll be the first time I'll actually be able to buy an expac on release day so I'm getting a CE no matter what (:I heard that. Last year I got so lucky. Guildie ended up getting an extra copy of cata for a birthday. Sold me the code for 2,000 gold. That's love folks.
Blizz defo should have stuck with the whelpling theme for the pet. The three collectors edition whelps are all awsome and make a nice sequence. They could have done a mini cloud serpent or something that would have been sweet especially the jade one! Or if they really wanted to break the sequence of whelps and get away from that a Sha-ling
I got lucky to get the CE of Cataclysm last year, and so long as I have the cash, I'll be getting the CE of Pandaria when it releases! The mount does look derpish...but I kind of like it!
The extras in the collection always made me think about buying it but never do. I'm still on the fence since I'm "one of those guys" that will be logging in ASAP when MIST hits (go go fishing achievements). It looks like I have to buy the digital (for quick access) and the collectors edition (for the extras). Just hard to buy two versions just for the extras. Time to save up and see if the cost can be over powered by the "want".
Really not impressed with either. The mount is okay. The pet....looks like something that might give me nightmares, to be honest. It looks like a creepy Littlest Pet Shop toy. Do not want.
