Possible models for the new Dread Forged armor

Hey everyone, the PTS patch today also added the vendors for the new Dread Forged PvE gear, while the armors are all using placeholders, the vendors are themselves wearing a new set of armor. Based on some observations in the past, the vendors tend to wear the gear they are selling so these models might be for the new Dread Forged armor.
Stats wise, they are rating 180 with 78 mods, so slightly better than Kell Dragon from Nighmare TFB and S&V.

I like to emphasis "possible" as these could be wrong models, placeholders or Bioware simply put NPCs models from Oricon as temporary model for the vendors.

Here are some pics:

They do look better than the previous ones, imho, although I would prefer more uniqueness for each class. They are basically the same thing with minor differences between classes.
Too much gold for my taste but hey, at least huge shoulderpads are gone (almost).
And I assume they'll be dyeable so all in all I'd say they are nice.

(headpieces are still awful, though)

EDIT: I wonder whatever happened to that Sith Inquisitor armor from the Rise of the Hutt Cartel ads...

Hopefully there are just placeholders because they look pretty awful.

Uhhhhh..... please please please let those be placeholders. There is absolutely no way my Sentinel (or any of my characters for that matter) is going to be wearing that. Too much gold, too similar between classes, and just totally not "Star Wars".

Did someone say POWER RANGERS?.

Set has potential, get rid of the cartoon gold. gets swtiched with the Dread Guard helmet gold... make it more demonic in art styles?

I REALLY hope these are indeed placeholders or just NPC armor. There is absolutely NOTHING about this armor that says Star Wars, nothing at all. My BH will not ever put a single piece of that gear on. If this does indeed turn out to be the next tier then it will be obvious that it is to push us to continue buying from the CM if we don't want our characters to looks ridiculous.

Funny, with plenty of the old outfits I saw many complains how redicilous comical they look, now BioWare tunes it down, give more bland outfits, and the people still complain, this time that it doesn't look awesome enough. Actually, I think they look like they could work pretty good in Star Wars.

My opinion (and hope) is that they look like placeholders. I mean I like the gold and stuff but the fact is that these sets are all SO similar to each other. The only differences are in the size and the headpieces. The general idea of the armor is cool I think but the different classes are all way too similar.

Thank you as always dulfy.

To counter some people though, who cares if they look bad. I'm sure most everyone has their toon in a custom outfit anyways and will just rip the mods out and vendor or store the shell.
