Premium Themes Unveiled!

Halo Wars Premium Theme
Just found screenshots of some the premium themes available for your brand new Xbox Dashboard.  I'll update this as I find more, sorry about the quality of some of the shots, beggars can't be choosers.

Fable II Premium Theme
Halo Wars Premium Theme
Forza 2 Premium Theme
Castle Crashers Premium Theme
Last Remnant Premium Theme
Gears of War 2 Premium Theme

If any of you find any more then leave a comment and I'll add them / link to them.  Man I don't give a crap about the game but the Halo Wars theme looks badass, just wait until I get some points.  I've heard that the 2 Gears of War 2 themes are identical except for the pictures in the background so I wouldn't bother buying them both, I'll try to find more screens.

Oh and thanks to Rowr for giving me the link to the original files

Huh I thought that there would be more interest in these, nevermind.

For the record I downloaded the Halo Wars theme and its pretty sweet.  I think it was worth it to get away from the poor default themes

I bought the Last Remnant one. Don't buy it. It's basically just a basic photoshop background that anyone can make with THE LAST REMNANT slapped onto the top right corner.

This is probably very simple and just exposes me as a Luddite; but how do you actually change the theme now?

I won't buy themes ever again, you can't even see what you are buying on xbox.com

Do the themes change the stuff your friends stand next to, like three of the 4 pre-installed "super-themes" do?

At least they're showing some screenshots of the themes now.

I'm holding out for a Left 4 Dead theme.

"I'd buy that for a dollar"

especially if it changes the friends list so they're surrounded by horde's of  zed heads.

Screw buying themes.  If they aren't free, then I don't care about them.  It's stupid that you have to pay in order to make your Xbox dashboard look like your favorite game, and especially when they aren't much more than basic Photoshop and Paint Shop Pro elements.  With the Premium ones, I'm sure a bit more goes into them, but for 250 points?  FUCK THAT!!!  I could put those points towards something far more worthwhile, like:
