150 mounts achievement, the Jade Pandaren Kite

So in case you don't know there is a new achievement for getting 150 mounts which awards Jade Pandaren Kite mount in 5.1.

here's screenshot from the PTR:

Okay, now i was waiting for this achievement for a very long time and got very excited when i saw it datamined recently but the fact that we are getting this kite mount is a let-down for me. Its PTR so yeah it might not be final but that is why i am creating this thread.

In my opinion the Kite mount does not do the 150 mounts achievement enough justice, it does not feel right as the reward for it i think, more like a reputation based mount or as it is in the pandaria factions achievement mount. For instance the Dragonhawk which is from 100 mounts achiev was unique mount model when it was released! And it was a god damned Dragonhawk - epic beast! The Kite feels more like ''trololo'' mount to me.

So to the developers: Is this final? Any chance of rethinking this achievement reward?
And to the players: Do you like Kite mount as the 150 achievement reward or not and why?

Heard rumors of there being a jet pack mount ingame. Though that would be Pretty epic tbh :P.

ANyway since it is pandaria themed, Can't we get some sort of....I dunno A flying Tiger?

You talk about Dragonhawk being a good reward because it was unique, even though Argent Tournament also had a Dragonhawk mount available for Horde. With that said there is only one other Mount Kite available ingame which is the one where you need all Pandaria factions at Exalted. So you can't say that mount isn't as unique as the Dragonhawk.

This has been requested several times y'know. And I believe there's already been threads dedicated to the question "what should be the 150 mount collection mount?". The kite seems good but I'd love a jetpack, even though it doesn't seem like the best oriental-themed mount. Maybe a hot air balloon?

Kites are kind of ... very pandaaria. Why not reward one for it ?

I think they should add a spectral flying thundering serpent tiger bear wolf proto dragon that has written I'm so awesome on it with neon letters.

I don't mind the kite due to the fact that 150 mounts is rather easy to get. What i would want is a 200 achievement with a bit fancier reward though.

But 150 mount achievement is extremely easy to get. I've bought hardly any of the new faction mounts or exalted mounts in MoP and still have like 170 mounts. :l

A mount like that already exists, you get it from recruiting a friend. I'd like the idea of a jetpack or hot air baloon though.

thos kites are not worthy do be handed on a 150mount achieve...i expect more from blizz that kite looks like just annother crap designed ya would buy from a normal vendor form a faction or w/e not from an achieve..ffs!

jade celestial cloud serpent, or annother color: purple, i know elegon has the celestial but why not a diff kick !@# color would fit better for an achieve perhaps with the thundering effect on it aswell.
175 mount achieve: hot air baloon 3passenger fly mount
200 mount achieve: celestial dragonhawk
225 mount achieve: goblin/gnome spacecraft

Well, I happen to like the kite mount. Sure, there are other mounts in game with the same model, but getting those is no easy task. So I'm not mad about it.

Would, however, like to see a 200 mount achievement added as well, while it's still a challenge to get.
