due to its nature, limited skin will be the only skin worth to buy. I'm not sure it's the intention of riot. either limited edition are really a bad idea, either trade system is the bad idea.
most players who own kitty kat kat are OLD school veterans and more than likely have most of the champs/skins in the game, they would have no use for that much RP,

This is assuming the transactions are completely secure and can be done electronically, also, assuming Riot caps the RP you're allowed to sell a skin for (implied by Hippalus statement claiming 5000 RP is very high), the only way you would get more than the cap is through trust trading which is risky.

I'd have a lot more respect if you left these in the legacy vault instead of pulling a money grubbing "Disney vault" style on us and make the skins not rare or unique at all, and only use the concept of a vault to make people pay money for old stuff still.
Except Riots own definition of a Legacy skin included that the skins could possibly return, so this is the first time they've come through on that possibility.

I am a little disappointed that Rusty Blitzcrank is not coming back because that skin actually looks really quality for "merely a recolor" and lots of other Recolors (Sasquatch Nunu, Emerald Taric, to name a few) are also coming back.

Two quick questions about this:

1. Are we going to get advanced notice of when they are coming back to the store so that we don't miss them again?

2. Are they all going on sale at once, or are you splitting them up to be available a few at a time until the end of january? (i.e. like 5 one week, then cycle them out and 5 another week, etc.?)

Now I feel I would have much rather waited for this sale. :/
Agreed. I brought Red Baron Corki under the assumption that the skin would never be on sale. I rarely buy skins not on sale and Red Baron Corki isn't really worth the pirce but I liked the skin and knowing it was never going to be on sale I went ahead and bought it. Riot specifically said that the reason these skins weren't put on sale when they were retired were because they were legendary. From that thread:
Quote:
Since these skins are Legendary, we opted not to reduce their price. A big part of purchasing a Legendary skin is they're a bit more exclusive by nature, and we didn't want to diminish that, especially since we're about to make them even more exclusive for the players that already purchased these early edition Legendaries.

The results of the poll are in and the result is a virtual dead heat between option #4 and #6, each with approximately 15.5K votes across the 4 regions that participated (NA, EUW, EUNE and BR). The combined vote tally is:
  • 1,522 - 50% off boosts
  • 5,076 - 50% off rune pages
  • 5,249 - RP purchases get extra bonus RP (similar to September)
  • 15,476 - 50% off skin super sale (10+ skins, including some never before on sale)
  • 11,679 - 75% off skin retirement (retiring several older skins to the legacy vault)
  • 15,487 - 50% off legacy skins (bringing back some retired skins not currently in the store)

Therefore our plan is as follows:

1) On January 11, the regular Friday sale will be replaced by a Skin Super Sale which will include some skins never before on sale (not Legendaries or other ineligible skins). As usual, three champions will also be on sale.

2) At some point between now and the end of January, the 42 Legacy skins below will come back into the store for a limited time at 50% off their regular price:

Crimson Akali
Matador Alistar
Pharaoh Amumu
Red Riding Annie
Annie In Wonderland
Safari Caitlyn
Nightmare Cho'Gath
Red Baron Corki
Mr. Mundoverse
Toxic Dr. Mundo
Masquerade Evelynn
Nottingham Ezreal
Desert Trooper Garen
Scuba Gragas
Alien Invader Heimerdinger
Angler Jax
Phantom Karthus
Unmasked Kayle
Swamp Master Kennen
Sonoran Kog'Maw
Shamrock Malphite
Vizier Malzahar
Dragon Knight Mordekaiser
Leopard Nidalee
Sasquatch Nunu
Blacksmith Poppy
Noxus Poppy
Professor Ryze
Workshop Shaco
Frozen Shen
Yellow Jacket Shen
Hextech Sion
Spectacular Sivir
Emerald Taric
Badger Teemo
Firefighter Tristana
Highland Tryndamere
The Magnificent Twisted Fate
Kingpin Twitch
Butcher Urgot
Feral Warwick
Time Machine Zilean

There was also a lot of interest in a skin retirement sale so we will pursue that a little later in 2013. The rune page sale and extra bonus RP promotions were well received in 2012 and will likely make comebacks later in 2013 as well. Boost sales, however, will go back into the idea dustbin.

Thanks for participating!

Just wanting confirmation...Firefighter Trist will be on 50% sale? The Legendary?

It's actually a little meh. I got it, and then they released the other 'unmasked' kayle, which is simply amazing in comparison.
