Free Your Xbox 360 Avatar

Ever looking to make the New Xbox Experience even more of a social experience, Microsoft has now released the Xbox Toolkit which allows you to create custom images with your Xbox 360 Avatar.

Using this tool, you can import your Avatar as well as the Avatars of your Friends, and great all sorts of images from eCards, to Facebook pictures, to Windows Live Messenger profile pics. There's several presets and backgrounds to play with.

The only thing I couldn't figure out is how to have your Avatar pose in different stances or display any kind of emotion. Aside from just standing there, I couldn't get him to do anything, which admitadely is rather drab.

If anyone figures out how to get your Avatar a little more interactive, let me know!
