The costume definitely needs more color to it, but other than that I like it. I would probably color the matte parts of it blue, just to give it a more traditional police palette. But that visor is really damn cool.
It definitely could look a lot more mechanical. I hope that the acting makes the movements more robotic. I'm actually rather surprised at just how tall he looks.
I sort of like the one human hand as well. I think perhaps the reason for it could be that it still has more dexterity than a robot hand and could aim a pistol better, or some BS like that (which would be ironic since, if I remember correctly, Murphy was a terrible shot when he was all human).
Actually, I think it's just so he's able to still have some sense of touch, if most of his body is made of cold, unfeeling metal. It's much easier to replicate sight and hearing, and he probably still has smell and taste if his head was mostly intact, but he probably needs some way to actually sense through touch. I don't think pressing his lips on everything is the best way.
Alternatively, they may cover it up with some CGI effect.
