I'm really not seeing a whole lot of a sense of "redesign" here. It looks like you've made him a bit slimmer, changed the legs, threw in a bit more of an anime-type look to the face and made the suit slightly more mechanical looking in a few places. You haven't made any major changes that show insight into the character. Could be pushed much farther, I think.
Maybe it'd be better to think situationally? I'm no great fan of the original design...never seemed all that practical to me. Think of what he might have needed to survive in the place he was in the show. These guys are marooned on a planet, fighting against mutants and Mum-ra. Such possibilities! Alien technology, combined with the grit to survive in the wilderness of an unknown place.
Where would they have gotten their weapons? How might they have aged and worn in such an environment? Did they salvage equipment off enemies they defeated? What sort of things were available to them from their ship and what would they have had to get from the wilderness? That sort of thing.
