Is it a single use? Can I get a copy of it from the collections, or once used, its gone forever?

BioWare, why you make the dyes we want random drop out of packs? Why? That's cruel and mean and gambling!

We demand that you give us a way to buy them outright from the CM, even if it's a bit pricey! RAWR!

BioWare implements that request...

BioWare, WHY are the good dyes so expensive to buy outright? WHY?

BioWare producers facepalm.

The question should rather be why they implemented the Dye Slot system in the first place when instead they could have implemented a coloring terminal similiar to the Appearance Designer where one can change colors on their items via a slide. People would then have to pay per color, but at least every color would be available to them, in whatever combination they wanted instead of having fixed color packs. This would have been so much easier. Even DC Universe Online has this for Christ's sake.

I bought one which I will subsequently sell on the GTN when they become rare again.
It was a simple investment of real cash for in-game money.
On the other hand, there are plenty of times when there have been no white/black, black/white, white/white or black/black dyes available on my server so I can understand why some would buy them to use them.
Also, some have jobs that take up alot of their time and that means that grinding for the millions of credits that you have to pay for one on the GTN pales in comparison to paying 10$ for one

I agree that the Dye system is flawed because of the rarity of some of the colours.
Unfortunately I also forsee a s**tstorm if they ever change it because of the people who have spent millions of credits on buying that one rare dye (Because you know that there are alot of people out there who only buy stuff because it is rare so they can show off)

Agreed, having the option to grind for creds or use real cash is good.
