What?? Apple and oranges comparison in how it works. As for economics comparison, in terms of using RL money to do it.. it's pretty much parity in terms of impact to your wallet. BUT.....

Dude.. it's a two part process to unlimited copies of any precious CM item you desire in this game... with the same end economic impact to you (worst case) and much less economic impact to you if you take advantage of the free trade in the player economy of CM items.

1) you acquire the CM mount (and by no means do you need to spend real money to get Cartel Coins to do this. You can buy them from other players on the GTN). You have a path that requires no "bones" on you part.

2) you pay a one time unlock fee in Collections (which in fact must indeed by with coins) and you not only get the mount legacy wide... you get it account wide.

What they all have in common is that they are promotional items that were unlocked/mailed out account-wide and were not obtained through gameplay. Usually, every character created gets them by default and I think they're in collections to make it easier to recover an item that was lost or accidentally deleted. Rather than just for cartel market items, you could say collections is for items not obtained through regular gameplay like quest rewards, world drops or vendor-bought items.

It's been available for a while now. I forget the exact date they released it.. but it was back in November I believe.

Very off. It was added November 19th.

Thank you for the replies. I did look into it further and yes the cartel ones are unlock-able for a few more coins. Serves me right for not reading all of the patch notes
There is no such thing as becoming happy. You only become comfortable with your core misery, which is in itself a form of happiness.
