Dragon Ball Z Metallic (メタリック) are Keshi (消し or ケシ) aka Keshigomu (消しゴム, for Keshi Gum) with additional glossy and shiny attachments released by Bandai.
In the 1990s, a series of miniature quarter-priced rubber machine toys was released, much like the Ultimate Muscle series and coming in randomized colors. They are known as Dorakeshi Keshi-Gomu and are rather hard to come by. All characters in this set came in a random color and all of them were very tiny and immobile. The mini rubber figurines are available in numerous colors, although the molds for the figurines remain the same regardless of the color differential being present in each and every installment to the Keshi sets. These mini Dragon Ball Z sets were meant to complete the previously released Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z sets, which were originally released from 1986 to 1995. The complete Dragon Ball Z Keshi series has 30 sets incorporated in the collection.
This additional Metallic (Metaru) series has 5 installments and allows for another special feature. Much like the Kurosu series, it allows for additional attachments to be made to the base figurines. These attachments, however, have a glossy and shiny metallic touch and make for a unique addition to each set. Each metallic series comes with a bronze, gold, or silver feature and each figurine comes in an assortment of these paint jobs. Additionally, the SP Metallic series was added as a bonus release to the larger metallic figurines. The SP Metallic series has 3 additional sets, each with special silver attachments.
