I dont believe they have announced if the vendor will be back at some point. My guess would be yes. but then they did say that they wanted purple and white crystals to remain relatively rare.

White are fairly rare.

But almost every Columi weapon on the Empire side has a Purple crystal in it.

Perhaps the white crystal will come when they bring out the next op white and black white? makes sense as of course (rep side)
colum - cyan colour (sm ops)
rakata - black blue in hm ops
black orange - denova box random drop
black purple - denova hardmode

Heres to hoping *raises glass*

....... But then ...... ive always been told i am an optimist lol

I think Black-White is Bioware only, or a special award similar to Recon in Halo 3. (well, pre ODST Halo 3....)

Where did you hear this? Have you actually seen a black-white crystal ingame?

This week's Q&A: no plans to make purple and white craftable at this time, particularly white.
So definitely rare--an "I was there" reward to people who bought them pre 1.2. From the statement, we can surmise that BW is not intending to make them common, so if they do come back as a reward, expect it to be on par with the 2.5 million credit price tag they once carried.
I make useful, game-expanding suggestions.

Pretty much this.
White at least is one color they want to keep extremely rare. If you want one, I recommend banking credits somewhere for the if/when they put the vendor back in the game to buy one. Purple crystals, at least, can be found pretty readily on the Imperial side of things, it's the equivalent of the Republic's cyan.

I hope if they bring back white, they're really hard to get. It would be kind of a letdown if I spent 2.5 million credits on one and they started giving them away for downing a boss. Maybe they could do something like the Legendary Weapons in WoW and have a huge questline that includes gathering stuff from endgame content and have the reward for it be a weapon with a white crystal, that way it would be available but would only be gotten by people willing to put in a bit of work to get one.

I'm just going to get this rant off my chest. I was one of the folks that started playing this game recently for the first time and I have to see people with purple and white light sabers yet I cannot get one? People paid less than 300k and now the new comers have to pay millions? (if you can even find one on GTM) I also can't get the speeder I want because they are never being sold anymore. WHY SHOULD I PAY SOMEONE MILLIONS OF CREDIT WHEN THEY BOUGHT IT FOR 200K????

Bio Ware, why can't you do it like mass effect, make it an extremely rare drop and if you play long enough you will get it, like the black widow. Either that or bring it back and sell it for a couple mil to limit the amount of people to get it. I'm just saying it's just not fair discontinuing items, anyone that signs up to play the game now cannot possibly get what they want even if they work real hard at it.
