Star Wars fans can now dress their Xbox Live avatars in a wide variety of costumes drawn from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. Yesterday Microsoft placed 44 costumes and props from the movie in its avatar store. These costumes include the outfits worn by Luke, Han, Leia, and Obi-Wan; Rebel soldier and pilot uniforms; Imperial stormtroopers, pilots, gunners, and officers; Darth Vader; C-3PO; a Bith; and a Tusken Raider. Curiously, a Chewbacca costume was not included in the set. Props include an R2-D2 companion, a bantha, a TIE fighter, and a stormtrooper blaster.
Prices range from $0.99 to $3.99, and all items are available for purchase on the XBox 360 or at Microsoft’s online avatar store at marketplace.xbox.com.
