And apart from the fact that I think Mim's head is extremely ugly, it's also no store mount. So what you wrote in your first post isn't even true in regards to your opinion.
Obviously it's subjective.
I love the bat mount, but I think the Iron Skyreaver is ugly. The feydragon is amazing but I think the Winged Guardian and Heart of the Aspect are kinda meh. I actually kinda like the weirdo goofy goat mount that everyone else seems to hate along with the sparklepony, but not more than average. I like the CM Phoenixes quite a bit, and would probably choose them over every store mount except the bat and the feydragon.
It would be nice if they had in-game variations of the super unique ones like the bat and feydraon, but I don't feel like the store gets all the good mounts while the "free" ones suck. There are tons of mounts available to earn that I really really like, many of them moreso than the purchased ones.
But that's just me.
I do agree a bit with you, but you can't really complain about something that's free. If you really don't like it, just don't use it.
I'm only annoyed by that because the rig still has the bones for the Draenei tail, which has the unfortunate side-effect of causing Lei Shen's casting animation to upskirt himself.
I'm still waiting for my Nyan Cat mount that shoots a rainbow out its ass.
Or Robot Unicorn Attack.

However, I think re-skinning is fine (to a point), and it's the REMODEL that is incredibly lazy (in some cases). In this case it's a worthless mount you get for free for playing Hearthstone. That's hardly worth crying about re-skinning or re-modeling, or worth the time for Blizzard to build a unique mount from the ground up.
The lazy part (and possibly unethical) comes from pulling the simple Proto Drake out of the closet, remodeling it, then selling it on the store for real life money, or used as the most prestigious raid mount.

I like what I like and not what others like. This coming from someone with now 260 mounts. Add as many horse or proto drake mounts as they want.
I don't get how people also expect a flying mount to fly different or a horse to run different, so it's not the same on each mount. How many different ways do horses and birds fly in this world we know? Would be crazy to see a horse running on two legs.
I know that this thread is about reusing the same model over. but you also asked if we had any mount ideas. for 50 mounts we got an albino drake. its my least favorite drake but thats because the skin was on the wrong skeleton. for 150 mounts we should have gotten an albino cloud serpent. it would have looked something like this http://lexxy-kitty.deviantart.com/ar...ragon-50021708 the right skin on the right mode.
