I've been trying to acheive this effect as well.. but I haven't really learned much about shaders. I'm assuming that it is all procedural... I'd be curious to know how to create this type of shader too.

Default i get it... its a phongE shader

i get it it was the phong shader, i took the PhongE-shader from maya and enabled the raytracing engine in texture and render globals - tipp do not modify the raytracings settings to not taking to mutch transparency.... it will **** up your pc's performance:o
its a bit messy with making light sources, i just took two directional lights with density 0,55 uo to 0,78 more it overwelming less is making it dirty yellow...

cu

look here:

I believe otaku is trying to achieve the glossy plastic texture of the robot.

glossy plastic style? i am with carsten on this one. i dont get what is so great about the shader. if i dont miss anything important on the shot, a similiar effect could be created with even a white lambert shader with good lighting.

well I think its just a tweeked phong shader with good atention payd to reflection enviroment and fresnel fallofs. A bit of incend or ambient light might help but better try to do it with lights. Dont forget Enviroment, real not just a reflection map. Use big light boards to create those nifty highlights.
First try at very simple setup and then build it where you need it.
