Hey all...this is my first post on this forum, but im no stranger to SWTOR. As you all know, the new cartel pack was released earlier this week, and the new Mandolorian armor set along with it.
Pic below: Now Mandolorian Purists may not like it as it has no Jetpack, but all in all, im quite pleased with BioWare on this one. Thought's, comments, welcome!

I'm loving it. The no jetpack isn't a problem for me. Not all mandos are bounty hunters and need to jet around

It sucks.

The way the coloration is set up, with the light blue color on the armor being hard coded and not able to be effected by dyes ruins the entire look of the armor when dyes are used.

It should be set up with blue (primary), light blue (secondary), and white not effected.

I totaly agree! I managed to acquire most of the set, minus the belt, helmet, and bracers....maybe I can get those later...I have and old bounty hunter toon that I haven't for months...only got him to lvl 11 and did EVERYTHING wrong..but now that I'm way more experienced, I'm thinking of reviving him and this wil be his armor! Mandolorian Bounty Hunters FTW!

Though I do love this armor, I did notice that some of the blue was hard wired, thus screwing up many dye mods, but that wasn't enough of a problem for me to not get the armor. But I do agree that bioware should change that. Maybe it's a glitch that will be fixed in 2.8 but well see!

There will probably be a red and yellow version too, just like in KOTOR.

I'm not sure how that would look, but I'm sure you can use a dye mod to make it red and yellow

I got it just to add it to collections and i'm only using the top and legs, at least till later levels. Mostly because there is far better Mandolorian armor just sitting in the stomach of some mob somewhere, just waiting to be sliced open and spray us with the goodies inside. O.o

I like what I have my bounty hunter in already but this head is perfect for mako since wanted to go for a whole mando clan with my companions.....to the best if my ability, poor non mandalorian armor wearing blizz can't wear the uniform; would be awesome though
