Hmm, I picked up the Dire Eliminator's chestguard for my guardian (L43 item, 325 cartel coins) and its hood down whether or not I have my head slot hidden. Here are some pics:

Head Slot not hidden: http://i853.photobucket.com/albums/a..._00_109733.jpg

I think I have seen some other players with the same chestguard (at least according to thier equipment list) and they had the hood up, so I have no clue whats going on with my character.

Its a fairly nice red with white and black highlights, so I am pleased.

It's not a Jedi robe. And it looks nasty. Red robe is...
Si vis pacem, para bellum

Traditional Jedi robes please! And then I am gone from general discussion. Promise! :]
Devs, it can't get any more iconic and traditional than this: http://i.imgur.com/9ha8ELu.jpg http://i.imgur.com/2NoBT6o.jpg http://imgur.com/7nHRBnW http://i.imgur.com/5J9oXnP.jpg http://i.imgur.com/ek3XDEc.jpg

I would love KotOR 1 Jedi robes, too!

I just want a hood-down Jedi robe, like in the trailer! That's not too much to ask for.

Not only that, but if its the only one, everybody will be looking the same very quickly..

Are you as happy if you know its a Sith warrior chestpiece? :S

But its a nice, Christmasy red - not the usual dark, creepy red most of the sith armor is colored. Plus, it matches my guardians hair :-).

I used to be wearing a chestplate of nimble deflection - it was a general drop from the main boss in the collicoid war game and it was a red color - so just cause its red doesn't mean its Sith. Mind you, I would prefer something in a nice cloud blue - but like I said in another thread, the dev's seem to think the dirt brown, chlorine green and puke yellow are everyone's favorite color unless you are a sith - and then you HAVE to love black and red. (mind you - I DO like black and red on my sith, it just gets a bit boring :-).

But I sympathize with the OP - if there IS a more jedi-like hood down robe they really need to sell it as an individual piece just like the dire warmaster chest, putting it in random card packs is pretty bogus considering that they have been promising a hood on/off switch since release and failing to deliver.

You do realize certain headgears will cause the hood to go down on many of the robes.

I really did consider purchasing this armor as the red reminds me of Republic colors (Venator star cruiser) but as the person above mentioned, I realized it was a recolor of a Sith armor you can find in Boarding Party I believe .

It's actually stupid that they advertise the incoming f2p with this hood-down armor on the launcher but it's not in on that day.
