Transmogrification with legacy PvP gear

The legacy PvP sets from classic and TBC can now be used for transmogrification!.
Blizzard almost ruined transmogrification for me by omitting those sets (it's hard to find cool looking black robes anyway), I'm so glad they changed their minds finally
The items out in the world (Marshals, Grand Marshal's, High Warlord, etc) that use the level 60 PvP art are un-transmogrifiable (including the item level 115 stuff that shares the name from Burning Crusade).
In Area 52 a set of vendors has replaced the PvP Vendors who used to live there. Grex Brainboiler, Krixel Pinchwhistle, Tini Smalls, Kezzik the Striker, Big Zokk Torquewrench, and Leeni 'Smiley' Smalls. These vendors sell new, transmogrifiable versions of the classic armor to players who have the Feat of Strength for Legionnaire/Knight-Captain or higher under the old PvP system.
The design intent with the Feat of Strength achievement requirement was specifically to limit these particular art styles to players who earned them through the OG (and relentlessly difficult) PvP honor system, while keeping the door open to reward them to more people in the future.
Potentially related, since he's in the same area, Kezzik the Striker sells inaccessible Season 1 Gladiator's, Season 2 Merciless Gladiator's, and Season 3 Vengeful Gladiator's gear to all players, as the majority of that gear didn't have restrictions.
