New Look Avatar Unveiled

Remember a short while back when Matt Hull (now http://www.trueachievements.com/Glawackus.htm) wrote up an article on how the Xbox LIVE avatars were due to undergo some changes in order to allow them to better interact with Kinect?

Major Nelson's avatar has been revealed to the Xbox LIVE world in it's new updated form with a handy before/after image:

My personal first impression was basically, "Why the hell is is head so small?". Looking at it for longer now and reflecting back on it I now find myself saying, "Seriously, why is his head so small?". Perhaps it's a matter of the avatars looking better when placed into the context of a game as Matt's original article touched upon. Here are some images from Rare's Kinect Sports to help re illustrate the point.
