Thanks Tait, appreciate that.

In the end it's EA/BW's call how they want to implement it, the items do even have a different icon (the star-like icon instead of the Cartel Coin icon), but honestly, to have them work one way for two Rep factions and then change on the third... well, even if it was initially a bug I think you'd want to take a serious look at whether this may be a genuine disservice to your players at this stage.

Especially given, as others pointed out, that the items can still only be acquired via CM packs (albeit indirectly) through grinding Rep Items and Cartel Certificates, since both are only obtainable through the Packs. Again, even if it wasn't your original intent to have them unlock, given how things have played out, it's probably worth a good hard look.
Given the choice whether to rule a corrupt and failing empire or to challenge the fates for another throw, a better throw, against one's destiny, what was a king to do?
But does one ever truly have a choice? One can only match, move by move, the machinations of fate, and thus defy the tyrannous stars.

No. Way back when the first vendors of the kind were introduced we were specifically told these items are supposed to add to the collections just as well as the ones from the Cartel Market. I think there even was a specific patch early on that added that functionality. Once the bind timer runs out, the pieces should add to the collections even when mixed and matched with the pieces from the packs, that's how it's supposed to work.

Keep in mind:
1: Reputation-exclusive items i.e. items that you can ONLY get with reputation (e.g. Resplendent Crown of Avarice, Opulent Triumvirate, Volatile Shock Trooper, etc.) do add to Collections when bound. The only thing about the Reputation-exclusive items is that they can't be unlocked account-wide in Collections, and even the character adding them can't claim additional copies.
2: Other Reputation items that are Reputation versions of old Cartel items (e.g. Mira's Combat Armor, Revan's Mask, Diplomat's Meditation Hoverchair, etc.) are likewise added to Collections when bound, and as these are Cartel items (or replicas of Cartel items), Collections treats them as such and lets you claim copies and unlock them account-wide.
3: Since Reputation replicas of Cartel items count as Cartel items, it is possible to mix them with "real" Cartel items. Personally, I got Revan's Chestplate, Robe and Sash from packs (I bought a lot of packs to get that sash), traded with another player to get the Gloves, and then bought the Mask from the Reputation vendor (I bought a lot of packs to get enough Reputation), equipped it all, and it was added to my Collections, from where I could claim additional copies and/or unlock it.
- This is how it has worked and does work with ALL Reputation vendors except for the new I.C.E. vendor.
- Why should some Reputation items (i.e. the Reputation-specific items such as Opulent Triumvirate) add to Collections (where you can't unlock them) if others (i.e. Cartel replicas) shouldn't? That would make the whole Collections feature even more confusing than it already is when there are items you can't claim copies of. Why even have them in Collections?
- Also remember that while Cartel items come from packs bought with money, you can buy them from other players, while Reputation items require Reputation and often Certificates which requires YOU to have bought several hypercrates of packs. Players who buy Legend-rank items from the Reputation vendors are your most loyal customers. They have paid you (BioWare) more money to get the item from a Reputation vendor than someone who bought it off GTN.

You are on point with everything you said, it's exactly what I was trying to say. I got an answer to my ticket saying that they are having issues with some collection items not being added, but GOD knows when they'll actually fix it.

Can someone tell if this is only a problem with armor or if it is with all items? Are mounts, pets, and emotes from the I.C.E. vendor added to Collections? Specifically, I'd like to know about Morlinger Aggressor, Grassland Varactyl, and Irradiated Varactyl because I'm considering buying those.

Excellent question, and I apologize for the delay - I wanted to make sure I had all of the information before answering. The bug is that some reputation items are NOT unlocking. They should unlock the item in Collections for you. I've passed this along to the team for them to look at.

I would agree, over a year ago you would see one community rep post and almost never a follow up. Now it is normal to see many follow up posts. Thanks BW, keep it up.
