How big they are going to be is interesting. But what's going to hit everyone square in the face liek a Mack truck when MoP goes live, is how detailed they are in terms of expressions and animations compared to the existing races. They even have animated *hair", for gawd's sake.In short, the Pandaren look like they belong to a different game entirely. Even the worgen and goblin models look distinctly second rate compared to what I've seen of the pandaren. So I shudder to think how terrible a human or tauren model is going to look by comparison.Surely Blizzard must see this as well. I know they have their hands full sorting out gameplay issues with the Beta, and I know they've said that the racial modelling issue is important to them - but honestly? They should be working on new models for all the races as a matter of priority, seriously, and not just "soon". If they can't get new models and animations for the other races in for the launch, they should at least be looking to complete the revamp during MoP's patch cycle. Otherwise? Pandaren are going to make everyone else look really *bad*, for a couple of years. And that's not a good situation to be in for people attached to existing mains (i.e. everyone)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hamKl-su8PE
