Yes one or two would be nice just to have an idea what to expect. There's many who are waiting for this.
Thinking about the little clip with shao hao after defeating garrosh sends shivers done my spine though, the pandaren talk animations they used for that... urgh.
I would certainly hope so, just so we can see some progress. I can imagine some of the races being shown through their development processes. Let us hope they look epic!

for example i love his face, he so much more expressive and versatile than the old models, but i am really worried about the proportions of his tiny tiny little head that is smaller than his hands. obviously the Faction leaders and major lore characters like Jaina and Anduin and Wrathion represent new skins and could signal the directions of the races they represent, i wonder how close they are to the 'new' models.

So true! there are some animation quirks that really don't have to be preserved if their quirkiness is the result of the limitations of the animation technology of 8 years ago. I would not feel like my humans were ruined if they actually moved more like real goddamned humans.

Im seriously dissapointed if they dont showcase all of them. I know I'll be called a armchair-critic now, but theres 10 models that needs to be done, with variations and such, and that really shouldnt take this long. There is no reason for a project like that not to be done in under a year, and if something like that would be outsourced, the ones on the project would surely have been fired by now.
It's just really lazy, and shows that they havent put any focus at all into it. I can get that it may take shitloads of time to implement, but a new model + textures is not THAT much work.
I think new models are pretty widely expected to be in the next xpac, so it would certainly stand to reason we would see some examples when the xpac is announced at blizzcon.
I would honestly be fine if troll's just got the current Zandalari model, I think those guys look terrific.
When they said the models were only 25% completed, they also said they weren't priority and were more or less put on the back burner. I'm pretty sure if they made them priority, they'd be able to churn them out at a decent rate. Also, wasn't that statement regarding their progress like months ago? I'm sure they could have made some headway by now.
It's one of the major new features in the new expansion, I reckon they'll show them, yeah.
I think it's safe to say they would at least mention something about the models if not show an example. If they do show them though I'm going to say they'll probably just show the Human and Orc models just to show people what they can expect the other races to look like. I gotta say for something so minor I'm pretty excited to see what they will look like.

For your health.
I think all the Vanilla races will get makeovers, but BC and beyond races will remain unchanged.
I don't just hope so, I expect it.
i think they have to, need to keep hype going and players are getting tired of reading about upgrades but not seeing any progres
