Lately I've seen a couple of Sailor Pro Gear Slim pens not part of the usual catalog of pens. I found a robin's egg blue from Morita's store in Osaka, and another in a bright pink marked "Bungbox" with a clover on the finial, that looks like a Sailor. These seem to be made specially for certain stores in Japan. I'm wondering how many more of these might be out there. Are any of you aware of others I may be missing?

 

Thank you for your help and advice!

too many to keep track indeed I did try it once... it may end up like the sailor ink thread...
regardless to say there are lots more check these shops
Maruzen (Fair exclusive)
Takashimaya (NT secret edition, and fair exclusives)
Kingdom Note (pens named after inks)
Bungbox (same with bungbox)
Joyful Honda (they get some with the added ink)
Shuumi no Bungu Hako webstore (yearly a skeleton model, and some other profit and pro-gear colors)
Usagiya (typically pro gear in different schemes)
Pen-house (once had a deepblue realo with rose gold trims, demonstrator with rose gold trims)
Hougado Pen-gallery (demonstrator Realos in gold and rhodium? trim)
will more or less have exclusive models to these stores in quantities of 100 typically
Morita's robin egg is the exception that its in the production line (pro gear mini too) and will receive constant shipments

Does Sailor also have any hidden specialty nibs? Some exotic one like the hybrid Cobra-Eagle-Music Emperor nib?

There's also the purple 1911 from Fountain Pen Hospital and the slate blue 1911 from Anderson Pens. The hot pink pro gear slim with the black accents is specific to Bungbox and there was a limited edition 1911 lilac for some pen show in Tokyo recently.

I bet there's been a bunch of special/limited edition Sailor pens...and I'm sure they'll continue the trend of making LE or shop-exclusive versions.

Not as exotic as theses but I have a Pro Gear Mini in Maroon with a zoom nib of a color scheme not in the catalog. I am sure there are many many more out there.

Check Koofle's thread on his Japan pen fair booty.
