Turn your Xbox Live avatar into an action figure

Avatars, your virtual self, can now be with your real self. We're confused too

Xbox Live avatars are hardly the pinnacle of next-gen console tech, but if you’re unhealthily attached to cute, mini representations of yourself then you’re in luck. Microsoft is offering a few ways to beam the little guys from dashboard to living room, in exchange for your hard-earned cash.

First up we have the mini 3D figurine at $60. We assume this will compliment the replica Master Chief helmets all gamers have lying around.

If you’re eyes have passed their prime, however, we recommend the giant wall print, with dimensions as impressive as its $150 price tag. The other half may not agree with its Feng shui, but at least… Well, we can’t really justify it personally, but each to their own.

Lastly, we have the subtly customized avatar engravings on a Zune HD for $170.

The multitude of $ signs hint this is a US-only service for now, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted, so that you too can lovingly embrace your avatars in the flesh.


Meet the guys at Microsoft
