Either because they no longer want the Triangle feet to exist, like Master Yi's and Sivirs.

or

The particles and animations would be a bit too complicated for an old model

If the champion's VU'd state is very similar to the original (Sivir, Master Yi, Garen), there's not really much of a difference.

For champions who had significant departures in look (Sejuani, Trundle), then we also re-crafted the initial look and gave that away for free to original champion owners.

Also, it's worth pointing out that one of the goals of VU's is to improve the fidelity of the champions and make them look better. For Tranditional skins, we aren't just re-releasing "old ugly [champion]" we are entirely re-crafting the old base skin on the new, updated model. So in the case of Garen, Katarina, etc. there wouldn't be an actual difference.

I'm really hoping Nasus gets a traditional with the original voice actor. I'll be devastated if they remove that epicness.

I can understand that with Trundle... But Sejuani's change in looks were not any more drastic in change than Sivirs

Sort of unrelated but when is Morgana getting a VU?

Any plans to update Urgot's model to a badass cyborg instead of a spider/bean bag chair hybrid?

What I want to know is what'll happen to champions getting a VU who have an older legendary skin.

Like Cho'gath. Will Gentleman Cho'gath get new lines and particles?
