Over on the Xbox Live Marketplace, a new prop has appeared in the Avatar Store. You are now able to purchase an RC replica of the Mako craft used to cart Commander Shepherd and crew around the surface of alien worlds in Mass Effect for a measly 240 Microsoft SpaceBucks.
I think it's been pretty well-established that buying items for your Avatar is a moronic use of your money, but I'm sure these things will sell just fine. Perhaps not as well as the Warthog RC car prop, but there's no shortage of idiots in the world and there's no doubt that at least a few of them are Mass Effect fans.
If I should ever wind up in a situation where I'm forced to choose between buying the avatar item or driving the Mako in Mass Effect, I'm probably going to have to take the prop. Call me crazy, but the vehicle physics really drove me up the wall in the first game and I'm really hoping it's been improved for the sequel.
