Update Toothless's animation model?

I've been on this game since there was only 3 locations; Berk, The School, and the Wilderness.  Through all that time, Toothless's animation model has stayed the same.  Sure he got color updates and an alpha mode, but his model never changed.  

I think it's high time for an update, especially with the addition of the Light Fury.  Her animation model is noticably smoother and more realistic, with better detail and motion animation.  And her ears are not two dimesional.  And because of this, I, and I'm sure other players, find playing on Toothless not as enjoyable any more, even with the speed and mobility. 

Here's what I would love to see in an updated Toothless animation: 

- Updated appearance to match HTTYD2 and HTTYD3 (he still looks like HTTYD1 Toothless, and his style definitely changed between the movies).

- Smoother motions 

- Fix his folded wings (be more like the Light Fury's), because sections of them morph through each other and it looks terrible.  Also fix the overall shape of his wings because they DO NOT match his design even from the first movie, and what are those claws on his wing wrists? He does not have those. 

- Actually give him his foreleg spikes and the spikes down the sides of his tail, because those are missing. 

 

- As an added but not as necessary change, having the option of a black tail fin would be AMAZING.

 

 

Please take my suggestion into consideration.  I believe it would greater improve the feel of the game and tempt more people into membership.  Thank you. :)

Do you mean his model and the animation? Unless you mean something else with animation model :þ

 

I don't think Toothless has the worst look, age-wise. Honestly there's some dragon breeds that really need their animation sets updated; like any dragon that uses the Monstrous Nightmare animations for example. Pour one out for the Typhoomerang.

 

But yeah, he could use a little update, especially regarding the clipping. I'm not sure why there's so much clipping going on with so many dragons even in their idle animations but mmmmmmmmihateit.

Yeah i agree, i feel that Toothless’s idle animations could be changed first as you might have noticed that he has the same model and animations as the sand wraith which might be why he has those random wing spikes? However i feel that the monstrous nightmare is in dire need of a re-model as on mobile the spikes just float above its head and just feels like flying on a tattered carpet rather than an intimidating fire dragon, the same for the typhoomerang
