    Silver or gray? Matte-finish or glossy? I can't decide!

    Why would that matter?

    Just in general, when you think of the character, is she shiny silver or matte grey?

    Personally, I immediately think "silver". If you check the link on her at tfwiki, you'll see that she seems shiny. You could go either way, really, so it's up to you how you see her.

    Well if you were going with the Animated line, I'd say go with a matte/flat finish.
    As that stlye of finish best suits Ani, if you were going with Classics, I'd say gloss or shiny/metaillcs.

    Personally I think grey.

    Yeah, she sorta looks shiny in the original, but then so does everything with the oldschool cartoon colors.

    Then again, she's supposed to be stealthy. Shiny ain't stealthy.

    As far as the level of gloss, it seems you've got your mind made up a bit :) 

    The character is a shade of gray, I'm thinking.
