Nope - it'd take too long if we waited for a VU.
Heimer isn't getting a VU according to Xypherous.

The sculpting phase is when I translate the 2d drawing into a 3d sculpture like I did for master yi and trundle. https://vimeo.com/68653110
It's a phase where the design is getting locked down and streamlined for the actual game.
After sculpting it gets dropped down in resolution and we take the shadow info from the high res sculpture and use it as the starting point for the low res game model's texture.

Maybe they just started working on it and delayed the others so we can have a full relaunch, IDK anything can happen.

If we guess correctly, will you(are you allowed to) tell us we are right?

Does that mean the next VU can be expected very soon?

The team likes to announce these types of things very formally with lots of great support from all the different facets of Riot, from the web team, community,events, and marketing teams. If I were to leak images or teasers, that would be a waste of a lot of hard working peoples time.
