Context & Notes

1) Riot KateyKhaos noted toggles would not be added to the FPX skins:
"Hey all, after discussion with the team, we're deciding not to add toggles to any of the FPX skins. 
This is a tall ask for us, giving the time remaining with these skins. It's not as quick as 'just adding a toggle'. Allow me to explain what I mean! 
As with all skins on PBE, adding new animations are generally out of scope for us.
We'd need to:
  • Lock down if the concepts for without a helmet is what we'd want to move forward with, or concept something else that maybe feels more cohesive with the final skin designs.
  • Model and texture these and get them into the game.
  • Animate a transition for the toggle (potentially with VFX, depending on how it was executed).
  • Implement the toggle functionality.
  • Test if everything was set up properly.
  • Fix any bugs and verify any bug fixes. 
Yes, IG Kai'Sa has a toggle with her crown, but that's because it's a toggle was built into the champion itself, meaning we planned from the start to update the asset to fit the skin in development, we didn't need to implement a new toggle from scratch. (We do the same with Pyke and his weapon toggle, since it's an expectation with the champion itself.) 
Hope this at least clears up the process and is better than a simple 'no, we aren't doing this,' even though it's not the answer you're looking for."
