This line was actually one of the first redesign idea I had almost 15 years ago, in the 99, when I first started to redesign characters. The line is intended to have a 90's sci-fi aesthetic. It has some elements of Cyberpunk, the Matrix, Akira, Ghost in the Shell, etc. I envisioned the movie as a struggle by a group of rebel hackers struggling to break free from the oppressive system of control by a mega technological corporation that controlled all aspects of society. I tried to stay true to my original ideas for characters as I made the line.
I wanted the look of some old hacker who had been around since before the corporation and was born at the dawn of the internet and helped make it great. I thought that what if a Bill Gates/Steve Jobs like guy saw their utopian visions grown into a technological nightmare they had withdrawn from society out of guilt only to emerge to challenge the corporation and restore their initial vision with the help of some young rebel hackers.
I am currently selling the set. contact me if you are interested
