Looks cool Kurt.

His arms are a bit long though. When you rotate them down, do the hands penetrate the floor? I also think that the headset and the goggles should be attached somehow, as right now they look a bit "tacked on".

Only other thing I see is the knee pads. They are a bit distracting. How are they attached?

Looking forward to more mate!

The important thing i think will be lighting. I can just see a very cool sort off silhouette going on from (what i assume is) the moon. Like 'Splinter Cell' sort of environment.
Good work
