Singapore P205 Pencils

I do not remember when I first saw these pencil, but they were first released in 2013 in Singapore. My first encounter with these was actually the White one that was later released in Canada in a 2-pack with a standard black P205A, when I purchased it in December 2014. This was also the first time I had encountered a P200 pencil with printing, that did not print the model number printed on it.P205BP2

I finally got a hold of a full set of these in September 2016 from a dealer in Singapore.  I ordered them off eBay and received the 5 pencils above.  I later ordered another set and the dealer sent them to me in the original packages, which came with a package of Ain 0.5 2B lead.Singapore Packaged

The original set are in my display cases and the packaged set is on my display board.

P205-BSGP205-BSG (Gen 6) - 327

This is the Red version of the pencil.  As I said above, this set of pencils are the first time I encountered this short style of printed text.

As far as I have seen, this pencil, along with the next two (CSG & GSG), are only available from Singapore.

P205-CSGP205-CSG (Gen 6) - 363

The Blue version.

P205-GSGP205-GSG (Gen 6) - 345

The Yellow version.  I do like the contrast of the red text on the yellow pencil.

P205-PSGP205-PSG (Gen 6) - 345

The Pink version available from Singapore, and supposedly from Canada (as P205-P).  In June 2016, Pentel Canada announced pink versions of several of their pens and pencils in support of The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (http://pentel.ca/news/16).  I have not been able to get one of these, but I believe it should be the same as the Singapore version. As of this post, it still shows as being available on the Pentel Canada website.

P205-WSGP205-WSG (Gen 6) - 345

The white version from Singapore and Canada. As I said, this pencil was released in a 2-pack, but I have never seen any mention of it on the Pentel Canada website.
