Revan's Chestplate; any word on a fix?

So, for those who haven't noticed, there are two hoods on the Revan chest-piece; the obvious one, which sits nicely on your head, and for some reason a second, which lays down your back.

Obviously, that's a bug, so having it fixed would be great. However, I might also suggest adding a cape to the chest, since we all know that Revan in KotOR wore a cape, and capes just make everything better. And... still not sure how I feel about those "shoulder-roll" things. Maybe it would look better with the cape, though?

Revan is so strong he stacks hoods for power!!!

I will pass this on for investigation.

Yeah, I've always pondered that as well, and I definitely agree about the cape, especially after seeing how the Malak chest piece has a full cape, Revan's is long overdue for a cape too, imo.

Are you referring to the Revan's chestpiece vs the classic Revan's chestpiece?

I know that those two are different and the classic has the hood down. I kind of thought they had the them both available to give us the option of hood up or down. I don't really see how there could be a problem with that. If its some other issue that I'm just not seeing, then pay no attention to me and I hope it gets fixed.

I wouldn't exactely call it a bug... Revan himself (the NPC) has two hoods and... Well, what's wrong with that? I often end up with two hoods, one being the jacket's and one the sweatshirt's. If you'd argue why a single item would have 2 hoods... Well, that's style :P

Besides, the Inquisitor Helmet from the Cartel Market now takes off the hood. (before it wasn't the case). Please fix! Thanks!

Revan's chest plate got visibly lighter, from nice evil black to a grey color after an update. It really contrasts with the lower robe and may bother players. And there are is still an issue of two hoods. :-]

And those shoulder-rolls the OP mentions... Here is how Revan looks without them (what the OP would prefer his armor to looks like, I suppose). I'd prefer to get entirely new chest piece like this at some stage.

I don't get it, though... In the past I made so many posts about double hoods. It affects more than Revan's armor

Just slap "classic" Revan's chest plate into packs with removed "shoulder roll" like you did with the stuff in the past and voila. Maybe even take a hood off, like on the picture.

And since Revan stacks hoods for power and if you wonder why he didn't beat the Sith Emperor... Well, watch the cinematics again and see how many hoods the Emperor has himself

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 have been complaining about this FOR MONTHS.

But I'd prefer it without the cape as is. IT WONT CLIP through my meditation chair.

And Eric, DON'T FORGET THE COLOR BUG.

Well as long as the "shoulderless" chest would be called classic, and would not replace the current one, because the current one is the one from foundry and I for one like it that way.

It's a BUG.

Basically when he has his hood up he has a 2nd hood down. AND when you get rid of the hood up by wearing a hood-removing headpiece, half of the 1st hood remains giving you 1.5 hoods.

I repeat even when he has hood down, he still has 1.5 hoods
