It would be interesting. It is very possible this wouldn't even please alot of the people begging for re-release as they wouldn't be getting the high valued rare skin but a duplicate (not truly the same).
They could do it as an experiment to see if people really think these old skins are just super awesome or just want them because...well they can't get them.

Funny how so many people don't seem to understand what limited means.
Cry some more children.

Sure, you can do the trade, doesn't devalue my skin any, why? Because the same amount are in circulation. People see my Kitty Kat, or my UFO Corki and they're jealous, they wish they had it, they ask me how I got it, it feels awesome to tell them I got it by being a veteran of the game.


QQ more.

So you understand my point perfectly, unlike half the people in here - you get that there will still be X number in circulation no matter how many trades take place - and you spam downvote the 2k threads anyway. And you laugh as you do it. You, sir, are a terrible person and should feel bad. Or in the words of Gentleman Cho'Gath, "you sir are a scoundrel and a ruffian."

And what you mean is "it feels awesome to have something they can't get." Which is why you downvote the 2k threads. Selfishness and elitism at its worst. You can't stop the 2ks though. You might get one or two, but the people who deserve the skins will work through your hate.

This. People like Liracy often have the skins just to say "I have a skin you can't have." I can count on one hand the number of times I've seen one of the rarer skins. Don't think I've ever seen a Kitty Cat in-game. So if people want the skin because the genuinely love the skin and will use it... why the heck not?

And then Contrast this with Magic: the gathering which is now bound by their own policy to not reprint certain cards. They created this policy to please their fans whom dish out loads of $$ on legacy cards and things like black lotus, to ensure that they (wizards) will not destroy the secondary market for such things.

But you should also keep in mind cards are tangible objects and have a secondary market value. So for right now, they don't really align that much with champion skins. What is really important is what was communicated when Riot released the skins?
You are correct here. YGO did not make a promise, as Konami cares about its competitive fanbase (lol), whereas Wizards cares about both. This is a major reason why aside from very specific collector cards (pre-reprint Kanan), cards that were once valuable drop due to the ban list-- see Brionac.

But as you said-- they are tangible objects, unlike in game skins. There is no collector market, unless the act of trading goes through. However, if it does happen this causes a speculator market, which can ultimately be a bad thing for Riot (not saying it will be).

Releasing limited edition skins for MAJOR occasions could be an interesting thing; for example, the LoL 5th year anneversary
