Gotta agree on the Phantom changes but in what world does the Spymaster Chest look worse than before? Like seriously.

Are you blind or something? They have FIXED it. All the gear now looks exactly like it was advertised the whole time.

It would have been very simple for Bioware to just release a new set of armor with the revised look. Instead, they took this route. I love it!

You Chose Poorly with the decision to change it (fix it, whatever).

return it to what it once was. undo the change. LISTEN TO YOUR CUSTOMER BASE AND DO THE RIGHT THING. Guaranteed there is NOT ONE PERSON who likes the change. Remove the shoulders/hood thing and put it back to how it was. Please!
I hated the old Phantom armor. Your statement is invalid, please stop assuming your desires speak for everyone.

I bought my peices, both outlaw and phantom guard from the gtn based on the look from the charatecr preview. I no longer own what i paid for. If bioiware screwd up they should have introduced the new versions as new sets and left the existing stuff alone.

And then people would have to pay twice to get the look they wanted. Point is, BioWare can do anything and everything and people will still complain about it. These forums proved this countless times.

Does not matter if it looks like the add now.
It looks like **** compared to the super sleek, stealthy "phantom" look it had before. It was a mistake to change it.

If they just had to make something that looked like the advert, they should have added an item and changed the name to "Dark Jedi Chest Piece" with the graphical change.

It no longer matches the icon or what was previwed. thats not fixing to match, it no longer matches. And a breast smooshing iron plate hiding the chest and a butt flap hiding the waist and butt is what makes the new spymaster set changes worse, it was a white catsuite, now its just the same as all the other ugly gear in game, which is fine, but I payed real money for a premium set of attractive armor, and now its not. I just want my money back.

Changing the pieces was a mistake; the people who wanted the model shown on the pack picture wasn't wrong in wanting that one, but Bioware was wrong in "fixing" it the way they did. Anyone who had a bound version of the old phantom pieces should've been mailed a BoP version of the new one(s). Or, another way I like much less, would be to add a vendor that let you trade the pieces for the new ones, similar to what they have with them green Razer crystals.
