Gundam Fans Spot Very Familiar Pattern on American Backpack

Wear the backpack all the newtypes will be sporting this fall

As American back to school shoppers hit their local Rite Aid drug stores, some mecha fans have met with an unexpected familiar sight. Namely, Outdoor Travelers Club backpacks sporting a design that is unquestionaby Gundam's mechanical mascot Haro.

wait

what the ...

my grandmother got me this backpack from rite-aid and it

IT HAS HAROS ALL OVER IT

LIKE THAT’S NOT EVEN JUST SOME RANDOM DESIGN THOSE ARE STRAIGHT UP HAROS

oh my god

 

Garma Fashion also landed one

 

If you consider Haro a character (and not a prop) he/she/it is the only Gundam one to appear in more than one timeline. Original Mobile Suit Gundam protagonist Amuro Ray rebuilt the spherical chirping robot and his successor Kamille Bidan winds up with one in Zeta. They then become mass produced in the Universal Century timeline. Athrun builds them for Lacus Clyne in SEED. Celestial Being use them in Gundam 00, particularly Lockon Stratos. In new Gundam AGE, initial protagonist Flit Asuno again builds his own.
