This idea has been floated around before but a suggestion for it has never been made. At the moment, LP (Loyalty Point) store SKINs are rare. The only ones who give them out, to my knowledge, are CONCORD, through the DED, and also the resource war corporations (Republic Fleet Ordnance, Federal Strategic Material, State Military Stockpile, and Imperial War Reserves).
This should also be extended to other corporations. The SKINs already exist, though they’ve long been taken out of circulation: i.e. the Thukker skins and other Minmatar tribal skins, Ammatar skins, etc. These should be added to their respective LP stores; i.e. Thukker skins become available at the Thukker Council, Mix, and Trust Partners LP stores, Ammatar SKINs at the Ammatar Fleet LP store, etc.

This’ll open up a new market and bring back old SKINs for those that want to roleplay as their favorite factions, and this could be extended further to also add SKINs for corporations, such as the individual Tribes, Corporations, and Families that form apart of the Minmatar, the Caldari, and the Amarr respectively. This would tank the prices of the current in-market SKINs, but this could be compensated by making the LP store prices expensive too.
