it was a sales pitch, an easy way to get "limited edition" skins, buy crappy ones for super cheap before they go away...
Some like Skorpion shen were thrown in there so it wasnt too obvious they were getting rid of all the crappy skins

I dunno, I just assumed it was exactly like Frosted Shen except yellow.

Then why would they remove it? There was nothing special about it or anything, just seems kinda strange.

Fair enough, I noticed they did the same with Champs like Alistar/Morde etc that had multiple different skins that were the same design just a different colour.

Why has this got downvotes? It is exactly what happened.

A lot of the worst skins in the game were put super cheap before being taken out and many more people bought them than ever would have had they stayed in the shop at their normal price.

Also I bought Yellow Jacket Shen, just in the hopes that he becomes viable.
