Geosynchronous World Spinner

Professions
Is anyone else bummed out at how plain this mount looks, this new mount for engineering. When compared to the JC mounts, well... how can you even compare a regular run-of-the-mill brown rocket to Voltron?

This mount looks pathetic, and with the cost it takes to make, I may as well buy the loverocket on the AH for 80k.
Yeah, I'm not a fan of the one I can make. The goblin one is much spiffier looking (and more different looking.)

Hmm.. I guess that would be a reason to switch.

Or I could just trade one for the other, since you only need goblin/gnome to make them (not to use them.)
I find the JC mounts to be repulsive, but that's all a matter of taste.

The panthers do have a much lower price point going for them however.
Linking an image in a post? Unthinkable!
I'm bummed that it requires 3 of an item that costs like 20k gold.
But... but... Can it carry a passenger?

I too thought the Goblin one would be cooler but I felt really dumb riding around as a night elf in it because of how small it is. I used it for about half an hour and now I only use it on my gnome toons.
I like the look. Hate the cost. Three orbs @ 20k each is unreal.
It looks like a nose. Seriously, take a long look at it and tell me you don't see it.

I feels good in this thread to be a JC and Engi but in all honesty, I hope my legs don't clip on the outside of this thing when I craft it in a couple of days. :S
I think it looks fine because it's the rocket from Tintin.

The cost of crafting this !@#$ is crazy.

Blizzard should give us a remote AH to make up for this nonsense.
Ugh, while my hunter is a die-hard engineer I don't plan on ever building the rocket at it's current cost. Heck it took me forever to build the bike I only completed it in Cata despite having the blueprints forever in Wrath as not all of us are made of gold.

Then again I just don't have the OCD to play the AH or farm mats for hours.
i agree, its production cost is too high. i figure it would take at minimum of 2 months at 1000g earned a day.
I love the look, just wish it wasn't broken on worgen

I have to agree. That's why I'm posting here in this necroed thread, because there can never be too many complaints about how ugly the Geosynchronous World Spinner is.

I saw someone riding it in Stormwind, and it was the most disappointing mount Ive ever seen. Although seeing it did end up saving me around 70,000 gold.

I think the goblin one is just as ugly, but Blingtron gave me that one, so I sometimes use it.

Those too.
