Now im EVEN MORE happy that i took Wicked instead of waiting for this

Go **** yourself. Lulu's been my main support for months and I will NEVER buy a 1350 RP skin that isn't Legendary, no matter how much I like it. Not now, not ever. Riot can piss off.

i wonder how much sales will suffer from this price. i cant imagine this skin really selling even half as much as it would if it were 975. guess well see though.

as consumers at the end of the day you have the fundamental right to reject a higher price by not buying it..

Originally, this skin was going to be treated similarly to Lulu's other skins with the dragon version of Pix being a very simple character with only few utilitarian animations. However, as we further explored this version of Lulu, the team felt like we were missing an opportunity to breathe life into the character of Pix, which up until this point had a limited animation set. So, in our continuing mission to delight players and raise the quality of our skins, we took the time to really develop Pix into the charming and whimsical being that he was always meant to be. This included adding an entire new animation set to Pix, including attacks, emotes, run variants, and more. I tried to make this version of Pix a fitting companion for Lulu by appropriating some of the silly elements of Lulu's personality that make her so endearing.

This is the first time we’ve taken a secondary pet character in the game and really given it the full treatment. On top of that, the skin received an adorable new model and what are arguably some of the coolest particles in the game. Not only does this skin open up doors for similar treatment on future Lulu skins, but also provides insight into ways we could bring even more personality to other secondary "pet" characters in our game.

After all was said and done, we felt the value it brought to the characters of Lulu and Pix as a whole was above and beyond what players would expect from this skin. On behalf of the skins team, I hope you all enjoy the skin and all the hard work and love we put into it.

I for one will say that I do appreciate the work that the animators put into making pix caper a bit more, frankly, Pix was basically invisible as a 'cool thing' beforehand, this changes some of that.

Still, I think it's also important to say it's just too much money for not enough return, I'm sorry, but even as a lulu main, I can't justify cleaning my RP out for very few animations that I'll see during combat, and a few loops and particle spirals. This was going to be my first purchased skin, but I'm afraid I have to pass.

From what I understand everyone was told that riot would be creating higher quality skins for the same price of 975 rp. I love what you guys are doing, the game is amazing, and the support for customers is as well, but first Kha Zix and now this Lulu. More effort was put into them, but I thought you were simply improving for the sake of improving. Not to improve then increase skin prices. There was a lot of work put into it I see, but I just feel lied to.

This probably summarizes a lot of summoner's feelings.

I'm cool with the Kha'Zix skin, partly because the bundle sweetened the deal. This is just .... no. Make it 975 and shrink Pix by like 30% while you're at it because honestly, he's just too distracting now.

basically the lulu skin is for spamming emotes and the Darius skin...well its better than his other one by far since it does have different effects also want to note Varus could have used a new skin since he only has one and its not really that good looking either >_>

Not saying other champs are less deserving of skins than Varus its just that these new skins were for the newer ones and lulu already had two - her and hec the last champs to come out with two skins at launch =(

Maybe if the ultimate had a more dragon related effect.
