Dragon Ball Z SP Figure (特別な数字) or Special Figure are Keshi (消し or ケシ) aka Keshigomu (消しゴム, for Keshi Gum) with additional joints and pose-ability features 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.
SP Figure series
This additional SP (Special) Figure series has incorporated a nice range of characters, allowing for a single color figure to be placed together. The first set included characters from the Super Android 13 movie while the second installment saw characters from the Imperfect Cell and Perfect Cell sagas. The pieces can be equipped and brought apart by their arms, legs, head, and other body parts. The coloring for each character’s body is one color. Also, these figures have a slightly better pose-ability feature. They are also a bit larger than the initial Keshi series. This SP Figure series has seen a huge repertoire of characters unveiled through a course of 2 sets broken into part releases. In addition to the original Keshi series released by Bandai, these uni-color pieces are a nice addition as they feature joints and body parts for each character’s full piece.
The following is a breakdown of all the characters included in each SP Figure set installment in accordance.
- Part 1: Vegeta, Super Saiyan Goku, Super Saiyan Future Trunks, Android 14, Android 13, and Super Android 13 for a total of 6 different pieces in the SP Figure part 1 set.
