That only really works if the other players don't put outrageous or extremely high prices on the items.

From the Blockade Runner Packs, I ended up with around 5 sets of the Revan Chest Piece and Robes. Still have a few of them left to trade or sell - and I've tried to do that a few times on the GTN, but kept getting my items returned to me since no one bought them.

I'd like to see the Two-Color Crystals be available to get outside of a pack, and the Meditation Hoverchairs - because some players put them on the GTN for way too many credits most of the time.

Some rare/super rare items like the Revan gear should just stay as a random inclusion in the packs, but other items would be nice to be able to just buy specifically in the Cartel Market.

I can't tell you how many things were in this latest shipment that I would've bought had they been on the market directly. By all means, charge more for them than what you'd get charged in buying the packs. Go crazy and list that skiff speeder at $20. If I'm spending money, I need a guarantee. Others would rather gamble for the chance to get the item at a much lower price. I've got no problem with the gambling packs as long as they're not the only option.

Case in point - I picked up that Carth Onasi set for my smuggler for dirt cheap on the GTN. Had that been on the CM on Tuesday for 15$, I probably would've shelled out the dough for it.
