Let data be the starting array you posted after cleaning out the
asterisk characters. Then the desired result can be obtained bu

In[21]:= Join @@ data[[All, All, -1]]

Out[21]= {{-82.1476, 5.17782, -205.36}, {93.8625, -13.9818, -198.778},
{93.6633, 4.46398, -205.432}, {90.1206, 16.9792, -205.314},
{55.3298, 17.7214, -211.648}, {-25.8558, 175.588, -121.105}}
