This post will be about the eight P207 Metallics that were released in the United States in late 2015 and 2016. All of these pencils have been released as various retail packages, containing 1, 2 or 3 pencils. The packages with 1 pencil have also been released as pencil only; pencil and 12-pack of lead; and pencil, 12-pack of lead and 2 of the Z2-1N short erasers.
I first encountered these online and my first purchase of these was on January 20, 2016 as a 3-pack containing the P207Z, P207M-YX and P207MN. Since it takes a while to make it into the distribution pipeline, I assume that this package was officially released in late 2015. The next colors I purchased (from the same online dealer) were in June 2016 with the purchase of another 3-pack of the P207M-P1X, P207M-SX and P207M-KX. The last two colors I purchased from the US retailer, Target in September of 2016.
I am not sure if Pentel USA released all of the colors at once, but it took a while to get through the distribution channels, or if the rolled out the colors over time.
P207M-KX Light Green Metallic
P207M-K1X Mint Green Metallic
P207M-PX Pink Metallic
P207M-P1X Rose Pink Metallic
P207M-SX Sky Blue Metallic
P207M-YX Rose Gold Metallic
P207MN Metallic Graphite
I have also seen this pencil color called “Anthracite”.
P207Z – Silver
One thing I liked about the P205 Metallics is that all but one of them came with tags on them that told the color code and the UPC barcode, even when in a retail package.
None of the retail packages of the P207 Metallics have barcodes on the pencils themselves. I did find a source for the last two (P207MN & P207Z) as single pencils with color codes and barcodes. This source corrected my designation of the P207Z, which I originally had designated as P207M-Z.
