I will create an in game Ticket treating it as a bug.

BTW, the bug report you mentioned, wasn't even translated in other languages. The none English speaking community was not aware of it at all. You probably don't care, but BW should.

I agree, that from a legal point of view they had to do it, but for customer care reasons, they should offer a solution for people unhappy with the new look as well.

You do know that you can preview any cartel pack items before equipping them and thus binding them to your character. 'Incorrect' Phantom chestpieces were selling well on Red Eclipse EU, for far more than I suspect the corrected version would sell for. If memory serves the Revan top a similar model but different colour was going for about 75K while the 'Incorrect' Phantom chest 300K.

The solution would be to sell the item on GTN and keep the cash in reserve, or hold onto the item in your bank unbound. At least you had choices.

Have you considered low-level craftable orange armor? Plenty of simple clothing there.

No....the solution was to query BioWare what was wrong then...I was told a correction was coming. It came today. I am sorry you purchased the incorrect version with non real world currency.

Just out of curiosity, and don't feel obliged to answer.

1) When you found out that the armour you were hoping for wasn't in the cartel packs did you buy any more?
2) How many other items did you get in the cartel packs that you didn't want?
3) If you did get any of the pieces mentioned, specifically the Phantom chestpiece did you equip it as soon as it popped out of the cartel pack, even though it wasn't as advertised, or did you leave it unbound in your bank?

This.

They were part of gambling bags, yes. But you paid real money for the bags, not the chestpieces themselves. You got a ton of things out of the bags, and possibly the chest pieces.
Also: They were actually advertised on the gambling bags with the look they have now. So actually.. you were being advertised falsely before, not now.

After I found out from BioWare a correction was coming I bought many many many more.

Lots of stuff I didn't want...that I sold or gave away.
3) If you did get any of the pieces mentioned, specifically the Phantom chestpiece did you equip it as soon as it popped out of the cartel pack, even though it wasn't as advertised, or did you leave it unbound in your bank?
After being Informed a correction was coming...yes I equipped it, Why wouldn't I a correction was coming.

I am in complete agreement with most in this thread.

I bought the spymaster chest then changed my mind to the phantom chest based on the preview of the looks... pulled mods... spent creds... blah blah and now?

I log in to find you've ruined the phantom set, then think about changing back to the spy master... but wait you've destroyed that as well.

Either put back the way they were or refund all my credits laboriously setting up the look of my toons.

So angry right now.

They can also be purchased on the GTN, on the Red Eclipse EU server Blockade Runner Packs sell in the 300K to 400K range.

Hence my guestimate of 1,000 credits = 1 Cartel coin = ~0.5p

Just had a look at the Revan chest piece and there are loads at 45K and 50K. A handfull of Phantom chestpieces have been placed on at the 950K to 1.5M will be interesting to see if any sell.

Tbh this patch today has been the first patch in a long time which has made me very happy with bioware and the game.

The phantom chestpiece and gloves were finally fixed to the advertised appearance which imo looks great and I can now finally utilise them into my main outfit.

The Revan legs were also finally fixed and was something I was waiting for since the packs first came out.

Unify colour was finally fixed, man you don't realise how much of a ball ache this game is when unify colour doesn't work :P.

All in all I'm very happy and I finally updated my characters appearance and she looks ******
only negative I guess is the pack seems to lack a bit in content compared to previous packs. Is there an ultra rare head piece item in this pack?
