I'm curious, why doesn't Lego use shiny plated parts like they did in the '80s and '90s? Now, most every metallic piece is a pearl color, save The Ring from Lord of the Rings (which I actually admit buying to fill out a Bricklink minimum order quota).
Is it because it isn't durable and flakes off (and the coating is perhaps something toxic) or cost?
