There goes my incentive to buy the packs. I prefer the way they look now better. If those items are going to get changed, I don't want them.

My advice is to never change the appearance of ANY existing items ingame because someone will always like it better the way it is. Instead, add new items with the different appearances.

This.

Especially when you advertise them at character creation screen so the items ARE in the game. Especially when you could implement a simple system for crafters to make armor of a color of their choosing and combining parts of armor or whatever. Especially when you seem like you've dug up old threads about Maras requesting some decent hooded robes, Inquisitors asking for non-tunic hooded robes, Reps asking for hood-down robes and so on and put all those items in the cartel market for a price tag.

But hey... that doesn't bring profits, doesn't it ? What's next, twi'lek lekku over the shoulders coming down in front, unlockable via some cartel market gamble ?

The investigators robe is brown rather then red....

For the same reason people buy Starbucks, Fast food, Beer, Cable TV or the number of other things we all spend money on because they can or because they want to.

Wow. How could they not know about this? They even used body 3 in the Blockade Runner's pack image, and put the text right over where it clips. Brilliant!

I also prefer the way they look now. luckily I haven't spent any in game credits or real world money on any of the "bugged" items; if I had I'd be very annoyed indeed.

The Phantom chest piece I was especially keen to get as there aren't very many items of clothing in this game that don't have stupid bits and pieces sticking out from them and now you tell me it is supposed to have stupid bits on it.

An fix [Life Day Tinsel Bomb] - snow is black but not white as advertised.

Look at this: http://i.imgur.com/iN7dn.jpg its white? Really?

Mcdonalds analogy doesn't work here. digital items in cartel packs are like... art prints. they are supposed to be identical to the advertisement because they are machine generated copies.
