    For nearly the same price you could get the Grand Expedition Yak which has value beyond being the loser of a design contest.

    considering it's counterpart was given away free, then this should have a very minimal value on it. 1000g - 10k at the most. but 100k way over priced for a 2 person vehicle mount with no vendors or limited availability.

    100'000 for that piece of shit? No, just no.

    The design of this monstrosity looks like something a 3ed grader drew with no knowledge of aesthetic design.

    The rarity alone may make me buy this thing. That said, I'm gonna hold off for a bit on the off chance that they MAY drop the price.

    Sorry but I would never pay above 50k for any mount.

    The Chopper animations on that bike look really weird.

    I kinda wanted it when I saw it spinning in circles and how much dirt and smoke it kicked up...

    But then it jumped. And that gigantic tread-thing in the front bounced and tilted at a weird angle, and as it came down the blades in the back flopped out. It really makes this already kinda silly looking mount (still looks like an insect to me), look like it's poorly made. It's so long-looking too.

    It's too bad that Paul Jr's crew had so little to work with. The Blizzard team that showed up was so excited to show off the horde, but the alliance stuff was all about Knights in Shining Armor.

    And yet. Paul Jr's crew couldn't even get that right. It still looks like an insectoid snow-mobile.

    I like it. Don't have anything close to that kind of money. Suppose I can start hookin'.

    Ouch, it looked horrible in real life, looks even worse in game. Tag the 100k price tag onto the LOSER of a contest and you have yourself a piece of crap that no one should buy. I feel sorry for the Alliance, they deserve better than this.

    If you look at the gold market, it sells for ~$1.50 per 1,000 gold, placing the approximate value of the chopper at $150. The cash shop would've been cheaper. Even if you farmed gold and sold it for real $, the opportunity cost is still higher unless it was sold by Blizzard for over $150.

    This was a bad move.

    Got mine. Pretty decent for a paladin. And I have nothing else to spend my money on that I'll use as much as this.

    Oh god, who would pay 100K for either of those bikes, they both look terrible.

    100k for the Grand Expedition Yak was fine as it offered services, in this case you're just paying 100k gold for ''just another'' different looking mount imo
