The armor isn't exactly labelled Mandalorian but it is definitely Mandalorian especially design wise. Granted the top isnt the same but end of the day there is more than just this one set out there, i listed this link cause its the first one i could remember and personally i like the helmet better than the grunt helmet the cartel set has.

Another set with a more Mandalorian chest piece is this Hydra set.

Now i'm well aware these are higher level armor but my original point is that the sets are out there and they arent hard coded like the cartel set.

It should be set up with blue (primary), light blue (secondary), and white not effected.
Actually, the "light blue" is supposed to be bare metal... It looks better in-game than in the preview.

Granted, there's alot of bare metal on the set, but I'm sure this isn't the last mando armour we see in the packs (or as rep rewards) and combined with other sets (like the BH set from the BBA vendor) you can circumvent the metallic look and get a mostly colourful set with little to no hassle.

I looked at both, but wasn't particularly impressed with either. I am growing increasingly found of the a Mandolorian Hunter set. I'm not even sure I'm gunna put a dye mod on it. Since I obtained the entire set, and it was added to my collections, I have outfitted Mako with an entire set, and we are the Mandolorian Bounty hunter twins! I'm also a a Mercenary so the dual wield blasters only adds to the look. One of the other members said it looked better in person than in preview. I TOTALY AGREE! Preview does not do this armor justice! I have gotten innumerable comments on it! Every other bounty hunter is like, " DUDE! WHERE DID YOU GET THAT ARMOR! ITS AWESOME," if you are a fan of Mandolorians, and bounty hunters, YOU HAVE TO GET THIS ARMOR!

If I can make a suggestion on dye's for this armor I've looked through most and I find the Dark Gray and Deep Red dye only available in the cartel baazarr looks great mainly cause the dark grey is primary and goes with the steel blue on the suit. My opinion u can try it out. cheers.

Does it come in a cartel pack? If so, which one?

I actually stumbled across this the other day and like the look. Took me a while to find something I liked, but this was good.

I could live with the dye issue if it wasnt for that dang right boot that doesnt dye and is a dark sky or light gun metal bue.

Each to their own...like i said tho...those are just two examples of mandalorian armor that was in the game long before the official named set. There is even armor identical to the set but its a brown/bronze colour. I don't know the name off the top of my head but i know a guild member has it/had it before the pack release.
