This is somewhat on/off topic.Its a little hard to see from the pictures here (no offense, its just positioning), but you can see from the pictures on MMO Champion that the three mages in that room are indeed wearing the same armor, but all three are colored differently. (Violet, a light blue, and red)It was mentioned that the armor they're wearing was the new tier 7 Mage that was leaked from Alpha a few months back. Currently, the Mage tier gear only has one set, as the same stats benefit each build (albeit personal preferences). With Blizz's intent to streamline stats so that more classes benefit from the same pieces, it would be odd to make available three differently colored tiered armor sets for a class that only really needs a single set.Any thoughts on this? Could be just so the three NPC's stand out, a simple aesthetic mechanic, or it could be Blizz making the effort to allow for more customization of armor pieces... (Yay! My Enh shaman might be able to not look like a complete clown!!)

Well my initial thought was that the reason why the colours differed from each other was due to them being obtained in different ways. For example one could imagine the red one being the new pvp-set, while the two “bluish” sets could drop from either 10-man or 25-man instances.

That was a thought of mine as well, but I wasn't sure where all three would go. A PvP, 10-man, and 25-man does sound like a logical explanation though... good call!
