Takara released special version of
MicroKnight call "Glitter Mode" as Toys R Us exclusive.
This was a change from their usual "Clear Mode" series.
(Takara did plan "Clear Mode" MicroKnight but it appeared to
have been put on hold). Glitter Mode is actually a different
process used to chrome the figures. Instead of the usual smooth
gloss finish, Takara added textures to the surface this result in
"glitter" looking body. The surface also look like an unpolished
metal surface and gave these figures highly unusual look.

actually produced a very nice looking figure the effect seems to be not
