TokuZaku!! Zakuzatsu? .... go go Zaku Rangers... dammit! It's catchy!!! Don't tell Goldner.
had the thought to finish out my Celestial Being 1/100 collection and looked at eBay
Cheridum: $26+$8 shipping. Arios: $49.20 pre taxes. Seravee/Seraphim: $75.70 pre taxes. If I get them that'll be as much as my Perfectibility.
They're really good kits though!
But they've been scalped for their rarity!
The trap is you're looking at the Designer's Color editions for Arios, so that's adding to the cost. All that's different from the regular version is decals, pale color pallet, and a proto-Gunpla LED module.
Seravee comes with a fully transforming Seraphim.
When sorted by lowest to highest the Designer Color Ver is cheaper than the regular :\ on Tatsu Hobby, they would have been under $33, Seravee $43, and Cherudim $32.
i did, however, find on Mandrake Cherudim and Arios on Mandrake for the reasonable price of 2200 Yen each, but no Seravee in either color
Don’t think of it as “expensive as the perfectability.”
rather, think of it as “three for the price of one!”
(I’m kidding, I would never encourage someone to buy more than two gunpla at a time - otherwise you just add to the “to do” pile right away).
Would you be interested in a pre-built one instead? Unpainted and unmodded, nothing broken or missing from what I can see (I'm not the original owner/builder).
Would be pretty cheap (see below).
I have a bunch of pre-built 1/100 Seed, Seed Destiny and 00 era kits that I got in a lot many years ago. I had originally wanted to use them in customs and kitbashes, but never found the time.
- Astray Blue Frame Second L (missing one small dagger+sheath)
- Astray Gold Frame Amatsu
- green Gunner Zaku Warrior (also includes an extra Blaze pack, some parts of the body swapped with the white Zaku Phantom, joint for shoulder-shield is broken)
- Akatsuki (only comes with the Shiranui/dragoon pack)
- Sword Impulse (no Sword Silhouette or Excaliburs)
- Dynames (pegs for shoulder shields are broken)
Is there any interest in these? Would be pretty cheap; Virtue/GoldFrame/BlueFrame at $15 each, Sword Impulse (sans Sword pack) at $5, and the rest at $10 each, plus shipping (discounts on bulk purchases, though!). They all should still have their instructions, and some of the parts (clear GN condenser covers, some beam sabers) are still on their sprues (I got them like that).
I may have one or two kits more than what's listed; need to check when I get home.
But the zaku are more like the putties than the heroes, I believe the weaksauce enemy dudes in sentai are even referred to as zakus.
Well the origins of the name Zaku stems from the word for "inferior." So naturally.
Zako, "small fish". A nobody, unimportant.
Ace pilot custom variant GMs are the obvious choice for tokusentai, they got them big ol visor faces.

Oh well. Wasn't sure if it is compatible with the Master Grade model anyway.
I'll keep you posted if Samuel Decal has some spares once his shipment arrives.
Unless you just want to pre-order straight from him.
What's wrong with HLJ? https://www.hlj.com/1-100-scale-seravee-gundam-ban958433
"This item is not in stock, but can be ordered. A restocking date is currently unknown"
Just like my MS Verniers.
...and I get the open order reminder email!
"You have an open order reminder!!! Your order has not been fulfilled in 405 Days!!"
Thanks, but don't sweat it. I'll look around my ebay sources and see what pops up.
Another look courtasy of Goods Navigation
