Masterforce D-311: Black Zarak MIB (Part 1)

In my previous updates, I talked about acquiring Black Zarak and also about the weekend that E and myself spent taking it out and cleaning it. I could not take more pictures last week as the weather was bad and daylight was in short supply.

This weekend, E had to go back to the office. When she was out, I decided to have another go at photographing this very sweet piece. 

Before the photos, one little piece of trivial I thought of... Black Zarak's Japanese ID number "D-311" is actually a mirror of Grand Maximus' ID number of "C-311", add to that the fact that they were rivals/counterparts in Masterforce and we have one happy coincidence!

Pictures are here.

The D-311 box. Box Art is absolutely stunning! The box is also in amazing condition. For a toy that is so large and comes with a styrofoam insert tray, there are no tears and no rips on any corner of the box.

Like I said, stunning box art

More details of Black Zarak at the back of the box. No idea what it says since I can't read Japanese. Maybe it says something like: "If you have balls of steel, insert the Zarak Headmaster into Black Zarak and gamble that it does not break due to GPS". Actually, I wonder if anyone out there had actually ever tried inserting the head into Black Zarak and I wonder what the result would be like.

Black Zarak is worth 6 "Robot Points". Interestingly, his ID number "D-311" is also written on the robot point.
