All elements are the same tone on the black version, except the screws and the inside of the cylindrical shade that are both coloured gold.

    Not even near. Inspired by toys yes, for the rest completely different. And for the comment below:
    Show us the things that you have done so we can also blatantly critique it.

    It’s perfect to give an opinion as long as you are contributing to a discussion. Now it is just calling names.
