I did also find a few different skins from drops though, but maybe I was just lucky. I mostly bought weapons for karma, so cannot speak to their diversity

For example each dungeon has three armor sets. One for each armor type. (Light/Medium/Heavy)
The armor you craft have different skins as well.
I'd expect the armor made from copper and the one made from iron to look different from each other.
With transmutation stones you can grab the skin from armor of any level and apply it on any other armor of any level, so long as it's the same type.
That makes for a ton of variety in the long run, when people start matching bits and pieces from different levels for their looks.
Weapons have a lot of variety, too.
For example somebody from Arenanet mentioned (on beta forums) that you could buy a lv 40 Hammer that looks like an Anchor from Lion's Arch and then apply it's skin to a low lv weapon.
...if you farmed a ton of Karma that fast, anyway.
As for what I found in beta the coolest thing was a Focus that left a trail behind it whenever I ran or moved it around in any way.
Seemed like a part of some sort of steam related weapon set. I found a Staff, too, although I don't think that it looked too amazing.
And a Sword, which I couldn't use since I played Necro.

The low level armour isn't very fancy and quite generic anyway.

Hoelbrak had T1 (level 35), T2 (level 60) and T3 (level 80) sets as well, which seemed to be Norn racial armor. Charr and Human versions were probably in their hometowns.

Placeholders will be all over the place to keep the download size at a minimum. Icons don't match up, some Karma vendors only had bread, and so on.

I'd love to see a preview-picture of the piece of armor I'm going to buy
I'd love too. I guess once the game is released you could go see in the wiki and it would be there, but it would be interesting to have a feature like that added
