Yeah -------> Christmas Eve would be my money bet for this mount popping on the CM.. Midnight, December 24.

And let's not forget that they DO NOT need to patch to change CM sales content anymore. The contents on the CM can now be driven by some calendar coding inside the game servers. In other words.. the fact that all the Bioware Staff will be home celebrating Christmas Eve with their families (instead of loading a midnight patch) has ZERO bearing on the Christmas Tauntaun going on sale in the CM.
^This. I can see them selling it from the 24th through maybe the 26th or 31st.

As much as I have been a fanboi of the game up to this point, this has crossed the line for me. A Rudolph Tauntaun would have been the last straw.
If it bothers you to see others playing a game the way they enjoy playing it, I suggest you play solo games.

Everyone who really does hate the game already does not play. No one engages in a voluntary leisure activity they truly do not like.

True, but the game would not be.

Ooooh, Life Day Taun Taun got ran over by a wookiee riding bantha!
On our way home on Life Day eve!
Now you may say there's no such thing as Wookiee Claus!

Hey folks,

Item prototypes are among the types of things you can see on the Public Test Server. Like all things on the PTS, they are subject to change and in some cases to not make it into the game at all. This happens to be one of those cases. I apologize for any confusion this may have caused.

Thanks everyone.

Noooooooooo!

This is the only item so far that I would have been happy to drop $10-20 on. HUMBUG!
