i don't know if anyone else noticed, but darius and draven (on pbe) both actually open their mouths (at least with the laugh emote) and both have an animation for backing.

darius simply lifts his axe in the air and draven puts his axes on his back, pointing up at the camera and says 'draven out.'

It's good to see them adding these little tweaks, they just gotta remember to do them for the other 97 champs. lol

Remodeling takes a lot of work, as stated by Morello and the rest of the staff in Art and Animation, but Animating little tweaks like mouth movement and a Recall/Teleport animation don't take quite as long. This makes it very possible and the fact that the two latest champions have it is probably a hint that they're working on it. The problem is that some of the champions have old models - all pixelated and **** - so they have to remodel everyone first. For example, mouth movement was practically impossible on Ashe's old model since her face was like a polygon.
