You know, I really despise when Blizzard make gorgeous weapon/armor models that are not obtainable, obviously I can understand stuff like frostmourne, but cmon...

Nope blizzard is too busy gluing googly eyes on ugly models for SoO loot to add anything badass.
Just like how several tier sets are missing boots / belt to match them, the items exist in the game files but were never made obtainable for whatever stupid reason.
Slaying 8bit dragons with 6 pixel long swords since 1987.

And they design LOTS of color schemes for all tier sets, dating back... well, practically to when they created tier sets. Take recolored judgement armor from BC dungeons/pre WotLK event... those were likely in the game since day one, just never implemented.

1. Cap-level quests
3. New dungeon sets
4. Any combination of the above 3
Never really made sense to me why they add these and never find ways to introduce them into the game. It's a wonder the artists don't protest, but some people might say their more recent dungeon/raid items are the protest...
Blue Tier 12 sets exist because Firelands was supposed to share it's tier with Abyssal Maw raid that was scrapped. As for the Vrykul sword from Ulduar, as others have said it is sadly not obtainable. I wish they let us use all the unobtainable item models one day.
I think people overestimate the amount of actual work that went into the Abyssal maw. Nothing I've seen leads me to believe the Abyssal maw ever made it past the initial development and design stage; there exists a game file for it, but it's incredibly rudimentary and has no NPCs.
I think it would be good for them to spread out weapon models again. As I said earlier, the ulduar sword would have fit in quite well with Throne of Thunder.As for the Vrykul sword from Ulduar, as others have said it is sadly not obtainable. I wish they let us use all the unobtainable item models one day.
Stormrune's Edge is awesome looking. I like it. They should of just added all of them!
I'd kill for some blue pally t12.
Its annoying they, never really put these in. Much like the glasses you see on Misa (Draenei in Jade Forest) I know Roleplayers would of loved that item, and it would properly overused much like eyepatchs and the blindfold from BT.
I'd be more inclined to believe they were going to include them at some point in the future if they didn't seem to be trending towards including ONLY specific "tiers" of gear... for example, all dungeon pieces use the same artwork across all dungeons, armor and weapons included, as do quests.
