It's all about the lighting.... But, for the textures. It looks like if you play with the basic settings a little to tweak. Maybe a little more reflective. But I don't think that is why you can not match the image.

Are you using a custom environmental map or did you select something from the default list? The background image has the sun behind him, yet the lighting and environment seem to have them in the front right so they don't match. Also, I am assuming it is because it is in a "T" pose, but the arms look really weird.

i'm using the environments from back light. Maybe if i rotate it more it'll look a little better. The biggest issue is trying to match that material. It looks more plastic, but I'm not sure if that's a cg suit or if it's real.

I'd try an HDR environment, which you should have access to if you have Backlight.
