I can understand using chrome on C-3PO figures, the character is mirror-finish shiny in many of his scenes even when he's dirtied up, but R2's dome has not once in the film had anywhere near a mirror-finish the way a lot of the R2-D2 figures from all the way back to '78 have endured. What is it about putting chrome on this dome? R2's head is brushed aluminum or steel, even at the very end of ANH when R2 is at his absolute cleanest he doesn't have a mirror-finish anywhere. This has bothered me since I got my first R2 figure back in the late '70s, yet nearly every version since then has had the same inaccuracy and the only chrome version that looked acceptable was the Episode I figure with a generous amount of dullcoat applied over it. So what's the deal?
