Bowdaar doesn't need customization. Goggles-Bowdaar is in the game already.
Goggles-Bowdaar is best Bowdaar.

Hey, in the SW verse a Cathar or a Twi'lek can be conventionally attractive.

Agreed, but Bio obviously did not, since we have a new custom overlay coming for him. In turquoise-colored armor.

I love the new customization. Being cheap like I am, I bought two of them, one for my main Gunslinger and the other for my Scoundrel.

There is one fairly similar in the game already, which is sold by the Security Vendor(?) on Ilum but this one looks just... Wicked IMHO. Best customization they've released for a companion since Vanilla for me.

I am happy you have enjoyed it. I am really envious! Fingers crossed Bio one day will cater to my jollies and idiosyncrasies

I feel your pain. I have been on the "add more companion customizations" bandwagon for a very long time. Since I play multiples of each class, I would love to have good looking variants of each companion. I was excited when they put some in the cartel rep. vendor, but they are all, to my eyes, ugly. Then they finally started adding them to packs and we get the ship droids, T-7, Khem, soon Bowdaar. Odd choices, none that are exciting by any means. They are going to put some other companions as rewards in the slots event. Yay! But again, they are all uglier than the originals. Boo!

I wish they would do a companion customization design contest! LotRO did that for horses and it was a lot of fun.

So they can reuse models from KoTOR, obviously.

I too feel your pain, OP. I like Bowdaar, and his new customization is awesome. I bought it for my Scoundrel. But with the non-human-like Companions (droids, Blizz, etc), their customizations don't make as big of a difference to me 'cause it is usually the same face/structure with different colors and/or armor. Which is fine, and can really freshen up their appearance. But I get more excited to see customizations for the human-like Companions because they can change their look from "eew" to "nice".

^ Pretty much this!

I seem to have a harder time finding nice looking customizations for the guys than the girls, too, and sometimes I think Bioware is teasing me. Oh, you want a customization for Doc that isn't an old guy that probably has sleazy facial hair? Here you go! Enjoy the green mohawk! >.<

Hopefully, they will start adding more customizations for the human-like Companions to the packs too. *crosses fingers*

And, non-human species changes for the humans TOO!

My wet dream is the flexible appearance companion customization.

Just open the damnable terminal for the companions without unlocking the race to the PC! Extra CC for species change (I can deal with Rona being related to Riggs through marriage not by blood, during the 5 min of the game (out of 3+ months playing with him) his species might have slight bearing on the story), less CCs to shave off the "I am a sleaze, dontccha know it?" beard off Doc, and super-CCs for making them Premium races like Torguta (then I can happily abandon my M!Inquisitor) and Nautolan (that species can make even Doc appeal).

And, at least one customization where Vector has shiny black eyes. Nautolan can, so the Joiner can too. Yep. Everyone creates lore all the time. We can do too.

Finally Guss as Nautolan is sooooo obvious and so fun! I mean, Kit Fess who did not make it, yes, yes? Anyone else is feeling it?!
