RoboCop Xbox Live Avatar clothes coming dead or alive August 25

The Nuke-ridden streets of Xbox Live are set to receive some swift half-man-half-machine justice with the arrival RoboCop avatar gear on August 25. Actually, we doubt the new suits or ED-209 pets shown in this announcement video will actually serve any functional use, but at the very least they will make you the most feared avatar on the block...or maybe not. How about respected? No? Damnit, can't we just agree this looks cool?!

The trailer was made by Giant Bomb member MoleyUK as part of a RoboCop avatar collection promotion. Feel free to drop him words of encouragement, and or job contacts with Microsoft, here.

The RoboCop Avatar Collection has yet to be listed on Microsoft's site, so we likely won't know the price of the suits, graphic t-shirts and/or robotic underlings until they drop this Thursday. Also, unless we missed the announcement at Gamescom, this collection is being released independent of any upcoming RoboCop game or reboot. Non-sponsored avatar gear with no commercial agenda? That doesn't seem like Microsoft's MO, but we bet the OCP are behind it somehow.

    @Chrisat928 What a shock; the obvious Sony fanboy with his sackboy Kratos doesn't approve. I not only will buy this for a dollar, I'll probably have to spend like at least 240 MS points for the armor and probably another 240 or 400 for ED-209. Dammit Xbox, you know what I likes! Also @ Matt Bradford, there was the Star Wars Anniversary stuff they sold with no accompanying game or movie release. Maybe MSoft got smart that we don't need events to dress up our virtual selves; now only if they would add Battlestar Galactica and Star Trek stuff.

    I might buy that if it's for a dollar. Then again what I would really want is the pistol.
