Dragon Ball Z Keshi (消し or ケシ), aka Keshigomu (消しゴム, lit. "Keshi Gum"), are miniature eraser figurines that were released by Bandai from 1989 to 1996. This series has seen a huge repertoire of characters unveiled through a course of 30 sets broken into part releases.
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 sets, which were originally released from 1986 to 1989. The complete Dragon Ball Z Keshi series has 30 sets incorporated in the collection. An additional 2 series were released after the initial 30 that focused on Dragon Ball GT characters.
