Wont happen. They're more than recolored humans and therefore too hard for Bioware to make

I absolutely positively will not purchase a Cathar unlock. If I must pay, I will pay for things that have value to me and Cathar are simply uninteresting to me. (In fact they seem to belong more to some of the 2nd Life red-light sections, which makes it 10x worse)

I'm with you. We are the fans and we are asking for things that will contrubute to us wanting to continue playing this game/spend more money. I'll spend money on Togruta species...I'm not going to pay for something that really doesnt interest me such as the Cathar.

I'll buy a Cathar if they would also give us Tagruta.

If they guarantee Togruta species then I will gladly, most definitely purchase Cathar

I'll buy cathar too, just to make togruta possible

By the way, some weeks ago they posted a comment about the togruta as playable species. Finally! ) Here:

It takes a lot of work to make all of the customization options work together and look good, while still ensuring people still can find looks that are unique to each other.

The Togruta provide a unique problem in this regard, in regards to the tentacles. Yes, the Twi'leks have tentacles too, but they are typically behind the player, whereas the Togruta's canonically drape across the front of the character. This means that they struggle to work with the existing animations and gear without clipping -- indeed, the first screenshot you see for Ashara if you google her is one with her chin ridiculously clipping through her tentacle. While this may be acceptable for a companion who is frequently offscreen while fighting, or NPCs who we can dress and pose carefully, its much more problematic for player characters who need to be able to wear anything and perform any animation and still look good. (The Twi'leks clip somewhat as well, but much art was tweaked to make this a lot less prevalent than it otherwise would have been)

I'm not trying to pour cold water in the species discussion. Quite the opposite - if the Cathar do well, I hope to expand your options even more, and we should know the answer to that 'soonish'. I just don't want anyone to think that just because an alien is currently in the game as an NPC, that it is trivial to turn it into player art -- it's a TON of work to do that, and do it well.
Good to know! So I will definitely unlock the Cathar, whatever the cost xD
Also nice to know, that it seems to be more difficult as i thought to make a companion character playable. This helps to wait patiently

We will see...

yep this is definetly good news i was planning to play as a cathar anyway maybe 2 so hopefully if the cathar are successful maybe we will get lucky and we want have to wait long for the togruta to become playable which i know is HIGHLY unlikely the race after togruta i wish to become playable is voss, then the weequay, and then assuming nothing else pops up i will be satified.

So far the only species I have been playing are Zabraks, I'm waiting for rodians/bothans(bugs/dogs). I will not play Cathar......

Yeah, species.

As there are many NPC's and one Companion (for the Sith Inquisitor) of this species - why not add it as being playable?

After all, for example, we can play as Twi'Leks - and both the Jedi Consular and Sith Warrior get a Twi'Lek companion (while one is male, and one is female). And the Jedi Knight gets to talk with Bela Kiwiiks, a Togruta Jedi Council member. So why not get to play as a Togruta?

Um, Togruta were first introduced in Episode II (in 2002)- so they haven't been around as long as Twi'Leks (in Episode VI in 1983) have.
