Celebrity Xbox Avatars

The New Xbox avatars are lacking in many, many, many categories, but pointy ears ain't one of them. I wouldn't be surprised if the selection of silly elf lobeswas greater than that for men's shoes. Combined with the choices of blue top and pale skin, Spock was practically begging to be born (evidence:SomethingAwfulhas one too.)

Technically, this suit is "tan" and not black. Hopefully, the wraparound sunglasses, vacant expression and spoon-bending furrow of concentration on Neo's forehead will distract you from that fact.

Geek bait here. The avatar tools don't include hairstyles for half the people in our office, but they do include intergalactic cinnamon buns, circa 1977. The rest was easy - I could have given her a beard and a monocle and you wouldn't have cared.

Movie Voldemort actually has icy blue eyes... I borrowed from the book version so I could use the sinister red eyes. Hopefully, Microsoft will expand the avatar options to include fun stuff like wizard cloaks and wandsin the future.

Blade Runner's kind of a random choice, but I had to find a use for this strange makeup mask. You could havegotten the Hamburglar instead, so be grateful.
