-Lots of "Two dollars" references to the movie Better Off Dead ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LdF_Vo4B6Ms )
-Needs more Newsie references (The Starflyer) ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0104990/ )
-Needs references (are there any?) to Paperboy videogame
-Lots of people are against Shen's face being revealed in a skin. I would personally like to see it happen, as he's the last of the ninjas to do so. His face could be concealed by a shadow from his hat, if needed.
Visual: Shen brandishes newspaper, holding it in one hand, hitting it against the open palm of the other
SFX: "Four weeks, twenty papers: that's two dollars. Plus tip."
SFX: "I'll see you in tomorrow's obituaries." (Focusen)
SFX: "I read about you, you're on the most wanted list" (WhiteRhasp)
Visual: Shen juggles rolled newspapers
SFX: "Extra! Extra! Read all about it!"
SFX: "What's black and white and red all over?... My newspaper after I'm done with you!" (Or Similar) (Fingyer)
Visual: Shen holds a newspaper up, shaking it for attention as if he's selling it on the streets
Visual: Newsies dance ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jPud_H94_i4 ) (RusianDancingMen)
SFX: "I want my two dollars!"
Additional lines (movement, attacking, etc)
- "This just in..."
- "Breaking news..."
- "The end of time is upon us!" (Think stereotypical doomsday conspiracists on the streets)
-"Your subscription to life has just expired" (Xiege3)
-"My paper mache. Your tomb" (Xiege3)
-A pun or joke about headlines
-"I'm going postal!" (Idea from SwedishMoose on reddit)
- Shen uses rolled newspapers from pouch to strike the enemy (w/ appropriate SFX)
- Bicycle bell SFX on hit
- Mailbox flag visual ontop of struck enemy
- "Delivery" SFX (WhiteRhasp)
- Maybe shen throws up a cloud of newspapers and when they fall he has the shield? (zephyrdragoon)
- He should pick up the bag and hide behind it (Faiike)
- He could have his normal-ish shield but white instead of purple and has opened newspapers or crossed rolled-up newspapers instead of the swords (Akkiokami)
- "Two dollars!" SFX on hit
- "You there!" SFX on hit
- His taunt should leave paper particles behind him just like corporate mundos cleaver (Loputo) (Reddit)
- Visual: He should hop on a bike (frozen toast) MANY requests for this... I think it wouldn't work, but i'm including it because of popularity. "riot pls"
- "We interrupt this program..." SFX on cast
- SFX playing in background of old-timey morse code broadcasting / radio transmission noise (Vulteran) ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d1rpCU7ePKw )
- Instead of folding his arms up to his shoulders he should start to read a newspaper. (Geekbean)
(If canceled) "Delivery Failure!" SFX (WhiteRhasp)
(If canceled) "Return to sender" SFX
- His ult should be a a column of spinning paper. (Phrosn)
- His ult should have a global message and speech saying "Special Delivery!" (Đeicide)
- Either for his Q or his ult, probably his ult, he should say "You've got mail." (1337quickscopez)
If you still aren't a believer consider this:
Shen is the only ninja that hasn't had his face revealed in a skin. It is some sort of twisted fate that this skin must exist.
Please provide suggestions / ideas / feedback! Upvote for Riot's attention!
I think it sounds like a pretty cool idea, definitely unique for Shen. Something more fun to take away the seriousness of him.

Just... you know.
Maybe for feint shen throws up a cloud of newspapers and when they fall he has the shield?
When Shen uses Stand United (R), instead of folding his arms up to his shoulders he should start to read a newspaper.
Bump for the reds
His taunt should be something like "I'll see you in tomorrow's obituaries." (Deaths section in the newspaper)
