Tron avatar gear and themes coming to Xbox Live on Thanksgiving

I'm not normally a fan of Xbox Avatar gear and themes but the folks at Disney are releasing some seriously cool Tron stuff tomorrow as a promotion for Tron:Evolution.  There's a little something for everyone as they've got light cycles, recognizers, and a bunch of other Tron stuff to buy.  The only thing really missing are the floating bit from the first game and maybe some Daft Punk gear.  No pricing was provided but I have a feeling this stuff isn't going to be cheap.





TRON: Evolution Xbox® LIVE Avatar Items Will Arrive on Thanksgiving



Avatar Clothing, Props and Premium Theme to be Released



November 24, 2010 -- Before the North American release of TRON: Evolution, the video game, on December 7, 2010, TRON fans can show their excitement to enter the Grid by outfitting their Xbox LIVE avatar with TRON: Evolution clothing and themed props. The items will be available exclusively through Xbox LIVE on Thursday, November 25, 2010.



TRON: Evolution, the video game that bridges the gap between the original “TRON” film and the highly anticipated upcoming film “TRON: Legacy,” will be available for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, Games For Windows – LIVE and other major video game platforms.



TRON: Evolution clothing available for Xbox LIVE avatars will include:

· Anon gridsuit and helmet

· Quorra’s gridsuit

· TRON’s gridsuit

· Abraxas

· Gibson’s gridsuit



TRON: Evolution props include a light disc, battle baton, TRON bit, and miniature versions of light cycles, a light tank, and a recognizer. The avatar can hold and throw a light disc or wield a battle baton from the game. The light cycles speed around the avatar, leaving a light trail on the ground as they battle each other.



A TRON: Evolution premium theme will also be available. This theme features images from the game and makes the player’s friends appear with TRON: Evolution backdrops and items.



If players want to support TRON: Evolution with real world avatar outfits, T-shirts are also available. These T-shirts for their avatar feature TRON: Evolution, Flynn Lives, Encom and Space Paranoids.



In addition to elements from TRON: Evolution, avatar clothing and props are also available from the original “TRON” film from 1982. These include a classic TRON suit, a classic TRON helmet and a Sark outfit. An original “TRON” light disc is also available to be interacted with just like characters in the classic film.



“TRON: Legacy” opens in U.S. theaters on December 17, 2010, in Disney Digital 3D™.
