On the PTS it was a reward for one of the achievements. On live, it looks like it has been removed. I'm guessing it's going to end up being a straight purchase item from the CC now?

It was never an achievement reward. On the PTS it was on the Cartel Market. It's probably not coming out.

Right

Look at the mount closely.

Notice the antlers and the bright shining red nose.

Now look up Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer. When exactly does Rudolph become pivotal in the folklore?

Yeah -------> Christmas Eve would be my money bet for this mount popping on the CM.. Midnight, December 24.

And let's not forget that they DO NOT need to patch to change CM sales content anymore. The contents on the CM can now be driven by some calendar coding inside the game servers. In other words.. the fact that all the Bioware Staff will be home celebrating Christmas Eve with their families (instead of loading a midnight patch) has ZERO bearing on the Christmas Tauntaun going on sale in the CM.
Forum disputatio ------> est completum ineptias.

Butchered and roasted for Life Day celebrations. You missed it, it was delish.
I'll tell you what, then. Why don't you call me some time when you have no class?

Something like that would be my guess, too.
Maybe not that exact timing (things tend to show up around noon central time) but probably much closer to Xmas day.
