So, why can't we access gold metallic shoulders on the Jupiter uniforms like the 500's can the silver/pewter metallic? Do we not deserve Vet Bling as well?
You'll use your 200-day blingiform and like it, dammit!

Actually, given that they're patches of different material type rather than different texture, I wonder just how much work it is. I know in Maya, at least, working with objects that have different materials assigned to different faces can be a pain, and snipping up an object (to make different materials easier) while retaining apparent seamlessness while animating is an even bigger pain. And that's before you transfer it over to a game engine...
