Retail Packages in the USA, part 2

In my last post, I wrote about the P205 and P209 retail packages, as well as the 2-pack of P207C Blue pencils.  This blog will be about the 5 series of P207 retail packages that are available here in the United States.

These 5 series of packages all use some of these 8 pencils in their packaging: P207M-KX (Light Green Metallic), P207M-K1X (Mint Green Metallic), P207MN (Metallic Graphite; sometimes called Anthracite), P207M-PX (Pink Metallic), P207M-P1X (Rose Pink Metallic), P207M-SX (Sky Blue Metallic), P207M-YX (Rose Gold Metallic) and P207Z (Silver).

P207 3-Packs

The package on the left was the first P207 retail pack I purchased in January 2016. I could not find a local source for this, so I had to purchase it online on eBay. The other package, I found online and purchased in June 2016.

The package on the left (P207MPB3M) contains a P207Z (Silver), P207M-YX (Rose Gold Metallic), and P207MN (Metallic Graphite) and the package on the right (P207MPB3M1) contains a P207M-P1X (Rose Pink Metallic), P207M-SX (Sky Blue Metallic), and P207M-KX (Light Green Metallic).

P207 2-Packs

I found these pencils at Office Depot in September 2016 (for the left package) and March 2017 for the other two. The left package contains a P207MN (Metallic Graphite) and a P207Z (Silver). The middle package contains a P207M-SX (Sky Blue Metallic), and a P207M-KX (Light Green Metallic) and the right package contains P207M-YX (Rose Gold Metallic) and a P207M-P1X (Rose Pink Metallic).

P207 Single Pencil, Lead & Eraser Packs

I first encountered these pencils online and purchased them, but later found out that they are available locally at Walmart stores. Each package contains one P207 metallic pencil, a pack of 12 0.7mm HB lead and 2 Z2-1N short white erasers.  This was my first encounter with the short erasers, as I had not seen that Pentel had changed from a 3-pack of the erasers that are shipped with the pencils to a 4-pack of these short erasers.

The four packages contain the following pencils from left to right: P207MN (Metallic Graphite), P207M-SX (Sky Blue Metallic), P207M-YX (Rose Gold Metallic), and P207Z (Silver).

P207 Single Pencil Packs

I was not able to find these pencils in any local stores, so I purchased them off eBay. They each contain one P207 metallic pencil, colors from left to right: P207Z (Silver), P207M-YX (Rose Gold Metallic), P207M-SX (Sky Blue Metallic), P207MN (Metallic Graphite), P207M-P1X (Rose Pink Metallic), and P207M-KX (Light Green Metallic).

P207 Single Pencil & Lead Pack

P207MLBPT (25919)

I found these pencils at Target in September 2016, and discovered that there were 2 new colors included in this series (P207M-PX & P207M-K1X).  Each of these packages contains one P207 metallic pencil and a 12-pack of 0.7mm HB lead.

The colors from left to right are P207M-PX (Pink Metallic), P207M-KX (Light Green Metallic), P207M-SX (Sky Blue Metallic), P207M-K1X (Mint Green Metallic), P207M-YX (Rose Gold Metallic) and P207M-P1X (Rose Pink Metallic).

P207MLBPT (25919, 26248, 26249 & 26250, 26251, 26252)

An odd thing happened in 2017; Pentel redesigned the package for the P207MLBPT and re-released it. They also changed the barcode and the number that appears on the front top left of the package. I found these in March of 2017, and they contain the same 6 pencils as the first set.
