Excellent idea!

They would sell a truck load of those. 'course they will be sneaky about it and put it in the packs. But at least I can buy off the GTN then.

BW said the hood toggle is not in game beacause it's difficult to code. However, there is several items already ingame which remove the hood. They probably fired the people responsible for those items, and don't know how to do it again I suppose.
Joke aside, as I said the hood toggle is already ingame and active with some helmet. Why not available for all of them ?

They probably want to do a proper hood toggle where if you toggle it off, it will be folded nicely behind you or something.

Right now what the headpiece does is remove it totally.

But I can live with that. I don't really need a proper hood toggle. This can be something they can code just to tide things over till we get a proper one.

They can add the remove all hood toggle, and work on the folded hood. Hood toggle is better than none, even if you have to wait for the folded hood.

Yeah there's a reason why I have a hairstyle. I want to show it.

Thanks Andryah. Even if they put it in packs I still think it would be a good deal. After all, people will buy the packs and perhaps put them on the GTN, so other folks will still be able to get them

Funnily enough, this is something that was suggested rather a few months ago not long after the last information we got about it was posted by a former employee....

I'm hoping that whatever is making it do that, will allow the devs to do that with all headpieces. I think the only problem is that you don't have a choice. If you show this headpiece, the hood will be removed.
Honestly... /facepalm

Agreed. And if they made it reasonably priced it might lead folks to have some patience while waiting for a permanent solution.

Why not just place robes with hoods down? This is ridiculous. They're actually putting robes with two hoods right now. Look at Revan's and Pathfinder chestpieces from the cartel market.
