Kinda misleading title is kinda misleading. Sorry.

http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=2349423

Quoted:
Magnificent Twisted Fate
Red Baron Corki
Annie in Wonderland
Firefighter Tristana
Alien Invader Heimerdinger


As a holder of the Magnificent TF, I couldn't be happier with owning the skin. Time to troll harder with dem Wax Paper Cards.

Tbh, I think Invader Heimer should be reworked into a modern legendary skin, and all the others should be dropped as legacy's o:

them downvotes on teh second and third post.

there is no, and i repeat, NO reason for anyone to buy these skins. they are all terrible shoddy excuses for legendaries that i have ever seen. (alien heimers turrets were updated after a massive backlash, magnificent tf and ff trist came out within a month of gentleman cho, most likely trying to ride out on that success.)

i wouldnt buy these skins even if they were on sale, every one of these champions has better skins for half the price.

I don't really see it being worth the time to remake them, I'd rather riot spend time to make new legendary skins for other champions.

Thanks to DuskToGlory for the sigs. LOL :)

Working on a Pantheon guide, will finish when I get around to it, could be never.
+Rep? I ran out of witty remarks about this, just do it, or not.

because this is the biggest jew money grab i've seen riot pull in all my years of playing league of legends. theres a reason no one was buying these skins and because they're becoming 'exclusive' they're trying to squeeze what little money they can.

If you bought the skin back when it was released you knew what you were paying for. I can see Riot's logic in not reducing the price because it's a slap across the face to anyone who bought the Legendary skin waaay back. Even if it is just a last attempt to grab some cash.

I'd rather they retire them and continue to put time and effort into more new skins. I own neither Malphite or Ahri but both their new skins look great and better than these very old Legendaries.

Off-topic: quite excited for the new Xerath skin :3

then by that logic putting any skin on sale is a slap in the face to anyone who didn't buy it on sale.

Or it could just be that RIOT realizes these are shoddy excuses for the Legendary skin label, and in order to keep players from purchasing them and being disappointed they are simply removing them from the store.

LoL's player base is so quick to point fingers and scream "MONEY GRAB MONEY GRAB!!!!"


If you are really obsessive enough over the game to buy a few ****py skins just because they *might* be collectors items later, you deserve to pay full price.

Lawl. I wish people would remember that Riot isn't their own personal game developer minion, and that they are actually a business which intends to make money at the end of the day regardless of butthurt internet dwellers.
