... and, no, it's not the same as the Social gear version. Very close, but different color set.
It's got different graphical designs as well. The head piece is clearly different.

OP, why don't you just get on your Jugg and send him all the tokens needed to buy the set?

I don't get it either. We have the legacy bound feature, a very nice feature if they would simple use it. In the event case all the items should be trade among our characters that way we can easily give them to our alts who may not be create or high enough level. Why just the guns?

I was trying to piece this together as well. I'm seeing no correlation between this faction and the sand people lol.

This. In a game that focuses so much on alts, BoP is BS.

He's talking about a character he hasn't made yet. It's the same issue I have. I've wanted to make a Tusken Jedi, but I've been focusing on my Imperial Agent right now. I hadn't worried about the Jedi because I didn't like the head piece for the sandpeople social armor. So now if I want to get this armor for a new character. I'd have to hope that I could start the Jedi and level him up high enough to get to NS before the event ends. I realize it's not the biggest deal in the world, but I do like to focus on one character at a time (especially because of the story). It would be so much nicer if these were bind on legacy as well. At least the tokens can be sent to alts.

I asked Systems Designer David Hunt why the Sand People Bloodguard outfit is currently bind on pickup instead of bind on Legacy, and he let me know that it will be changed to bind on Legacy in the future - this will also affect the Imperial and Republic Containment Officer outfits from the Rakghoul event.

Thank you, ma'am (and sir). Now if only the Lobelot was the same way, I liked that I could send the Pale Rakling from the Rakghoul event to my baby Knight (though it wasn't bound at all, if I recall correctly).

That is great to know, thanks! Now I might actually pick up a couple of the sand people pieces from the event.

And if Containment Officer sets are becoming bind on legacy too . . . does this mean I'll be able to use my Republic Containment Officer set on my Empire characters? That would be awesome, 'cause my Imperial characters were all too low level to participate in the Rakghoul event, and I have since switched my focus to the Imperial side.
