Blizz should give a choice between the penguin and frost whelp... it doesn't seem unreasonable to me to have a choice of two ornamental pets for each expansion when there was a choice of three for each toon for the original collectors' edition. I was quite disappointed with the netherwhelp... the modelling is quite chunky, and not nearly as impressive as any of the mini-Diablo, zergling, and the whizziest fizz of them all, the adorable panda, and it would be more of a charge to get it from the npc as a choice than to just get it in the mail as well.

I'm in the beta, and everyone seems to get a penguin for 'using a Blizzard account', which is the new system that will be in place after Wrath (instead of a 'wow account'.) This would imply that *everyone* gets a penguin pet, but of course that could change before release.

Note that the penguin is a reward for making a BLIZZARD account, which is different from your WoW account. The Blizzard account lets you shop in the Blizz store, among other things.
