"Only Jack can zip up."
The word you want to use is "have" not "of".
You may have alot of stuff in your country, but we got Lolland.
But isnt those just "extra" content for patch? Dont see the big problem here.
Seriously, the mindset of people like you baffles me. "Things that have NO direct affect on me, but I don't like, should not be allowed to happen in the game." is something I see far too often on these forums.
The BS patterns - as far as I can tell - are all patterns that were removed from the game when weaponsmithing/armorsmithing was removed from blacksmithing. The weapons, in my and many other people's opinion, look freaking awesome, and its a shame that people wouldn't be allowed to get those models for transmog simply because they didn't happen to have weaponsmithing (and hammersmith for Stormherald, swordsmith for lionheart executioner, etc.) before it was removed from the game. Considering the fact that implementing this probably took very little effort (as the art was already created and in the game), I can't understand why people would be upset with them adding them.
It seems to me that you either simply want attention from people by posting a completely pointless "anti-whatever blizzard has done to wow lately" thread, or you truly cannot stand other people getting something that they will enjoy.
The fact that these weapons, transmogging, etc., etc., are in the game should not detract from your play experience, unless your narrow-minded view of how things must be in WoW is so twisted that you must condemn a large portion of the playerbase - that not only enjoys these things, but vehemently asks Blizzard for them - to playing the game that you, personally, think that WoW should be.
I bet the OP is one of those people that complained how blizzard is wasting their precious development time on the Transmog when it could've been used to develop "real" content.
Seriously, flavor stuffs like these is what keeps the players coming for more.
I actually understand and respect the OPs point. I tend to agree with him.
Despite the bad raid boss models in DS, I enjoyed the hell out of DS. Despite no underwater raid, I've enjoyed transmog and Cataclysm. I still think Blizzard rehashes a lot of content, and it feels pretty lazy.

Yes, that are two examples of rehashes.
It are also the only two examples.
And most things (almost everything) that some 'people' here call 'cop outs' were actually requested.
Keeping up to date to what people on the fora ask might be a good way to inform yourself on this matter.
Blizzard been "desperate" for what... 4 years now? /sigh
Screw the definition of cop-out lets look up desperate. What makes you desperate raking in gobs of cash?
Community Manager: Many users have been requesting transmogs of old expansion patterns, weapon models to be specific.
Dev1: Ok, maybe we can get that in if we finish all this new content.
Dev2: I am about to finish touching up these hundred models I was assigned.
Dev Team Lead: Reports from upstairs are that our dwindling user base needs a bit of the reminder why they loved TBC so much.
Dev1: Oh Dear God! Attunements?
Dev2: I know! Moroes trash or farming soulshards?
Dev Team Lead: Ha Ha, No. Just the give them some old weapon models as patterns so they can make them for transmog. ...and check the forums after you announce it. /trollface
Dev Team Lead: (to Community Manager) I don't envy you.
Dev3: (sticks head in with foam sword) FOR THE SCRYERS!!!!
Dev Team Lead: (to Dev3) Get back in your Titan Hole, you creten. Don't come out unless you find Kaplan.
Personally I'm stoked they're giving us these weapons again, my DK could not get his hands on the plans in time but my main had them back in the day but since they were BoP, I could not simply make them for my DK. Cop out you say? No, that's just insanely stupid and you're crazy if you think 5.2 is a rehash patch, ITS ONLY A FEW WEAPONS! There's like what? 100+ unique armor/weapons in the raids, that's a lot of art! Then you have the recolors aswell AND all the unique NPC's and new questing hub, come on people stop with the rehash shit.
They're extras, they didn't have to implement them in this way, but they chose to because -gasp- THE COMMUNITY WANTED THEM BACK! Hard to believe there's BC players and individuals past BC that really wanted them back, isn't it? You know what Blizzard is doing right there? A selfless service to the Community because the request was so popular but they just didn't know when the right time to implement them was, I think their return in this manner is awesome and they couldn't have picked a better time and place to implement them.
You guys throwing out the words "cop out" and "rehash" need to seriously Google up the meaning of these sayings.

You can't see why that is so funny, or why it is such a logical fallacy, can you. Yes, I gave you two examples, but there are plenty more. I'd just be wasting my time though if I went into other examples, as you'd only continue to rail on about how I am wrong and probably call me a 'hater' or some such.
Quick EDIT: I wasn't even talking about things that were requested either, so er... You're really phishing for ways to counter my statement.

They're "rehashing" old weapon models IN ADDITION TO introducing new armor AND weapon models AND NPC models...but let's ignore the new models and just focus on the "rehashed" old models they're adding back in.
Yeah gee it's a real shame that's the only thing they're releasing this entire content patch...
OH WAIT... you mean to tell me that they're introducing an entire new raid, with 13 new bosses, all with new models (and in some cases, more than one new model per boss fight) in a completely new raid environment on a completely new island, with numerous tiers of new gear to go with said bosses?
Do you people honestly think about your arguments before you post them?
Mists is full of new content, new models, music, new everything. And in case you weren't aware (and the general ineptitude of your post strongly suggests that you aren't) countless people ASKED Blizzardto bring back the BC crafting epics for transmog, in fact I am one of the people who has made such a post.
Doesn't have a thing to do with Titan, or with them 'rehashing' anything. Its them giving us something many people wanted. FFS.

Sure, "yer wrong QQ moar babee" is a poor way of communicating, but the logic behind it is sound: there's absolutely no reason to complain about "rehashing" content because there's a dearth of new content.
