A Kerbal android (A kedroid? A kerborg?).
Visually indistinguishable from a Kerbal, wears same spacesuit. Moves like a Kerbal.
This will even not require a new texture or model.

Kind of defeats the purpose of the question, then, doesn't it?

No, they wont wear a suit since they wont need air. 

 

I'm talking physical features of an android. Exposed robotics, robotic movements sometimes, etc.

Aren't the Kerbals bots themselves?
A Kerbal-like bot is kinda an infinite recursion.

People are really liking the idea of a military style space suit... with Armageddon and Sunshine style suits tied for second. Honestly, I didn't think the latter two would get much love, but apparently people like Sunshine and Armageddon.

Kerbals are more like ballast. Dead weight that keeps the craft upright.

make the little guys valuable before more computer controlled action.

Something that might be really cool is the ability to switch the RCS pack for a Kerbin-flyable jet pack. I know, it’s slightly (maybe)  unrealistic,  but in comparison to the RCS pack with 600m/s of delta V, a jet pack running off monopropellant with 10 minutes of flight time (probably pretty realistic powered by hydrogen peroxide decomposition) sounds like something in the scope of KSP.  

 

Actually, this would be greater in stock like the addition of the parachute. An addition like this should be able to everyone.

 

Just an ideas.

Also the LBA-2 (Little Big Adventure)-style bimodal hovering jetpack looks nice (not in KSP).

In the 1st mode ("proto-pack") you are hovering above the surface at ~1m, staying still or slowly flying forward (depends on arrow keys). The pose is like you are just sitting in air, sticking its handles in fists.

In the 2nd mode ("super jetpack") you are hovering above the surface at ~1m, quickly flying forward. The pose is like you are a flying witch tilting forward.

Probably a suit designed for exploring the oceans of Kerbin, Eve, and Laythe, looking something like this:

We already have the Retro/Modern/Futuristic lineup for the suits, so why not do something different?

We should have a 2001: A space odyssey style suit for a certain Dave kerman or such...

Although, I think a classic 50's style suit complete with bubble helmet could be cool as well, now that I think of it.

We need that... thing on the floor, too.

Reminds me of this episode of doctor who 'Empress of Mars' and the suit that went with it.

We probably won't get a steampunk suit, but...
