We’ve always wished the giant robot that appears in the background of our XBL friends list could be our avatar, but this is the next best thing.
CVG‘s reporting that your Avatar can now disguise itself as a robot in disguise. Megatron, Optimus Prime, and Bumblebee helmets are available, as are a number of Transformers-themed shirts. Do not, however, mistake this for good news. All of this shiny new gear is stamped with Michael Bay’s assuredly ostentatious signature. No retro-chic here.
Which is really a shame. The lack of an 80’s-style Optimus Prime helmet is the only thing keeping our Avatar from perfectly resembling its creator. Oh well. Maybe next time.
