Wow dave, you really have your work cut out for you! I think at this point you still need to work on the lighting, and the chrome material on your robot more than anything else. Unless your satisfied with how it looks already.

Cheers Dave!!

Right know ( for the most part ) your chrome is reflecting a black and white environment.

Your chrome material should look more like this in relation to your environment. My example chrome setup has no blurred reflections, but wouldn't look much different if they were blurred. It would still reflect all the colors of the environment.
