Anyone know which Gundam is this: http://animarchive.tumblr.com/post/1542 ... -hikari-no

Also, is that Sayla siding with Haman?

Don't what machine that is but Sayla taking Char's spot would be an interesting story to read personally.

That's from O (Outer) Gundam, a fake/parody story published in Out Magazine in 1986 that was supposedly going to be the sequel to Zeta Gundam. And yes, that's Sayla (going by her birth name) siding with Haman and piloting the Psyco Gundam Mk-IV.

First is from this game. https://breadmasterlee.com/2016/11/29/o ... chronicle/ Read the caption. I can't find a list of equipment for the game.

The shoulders and the sides of the legs scream F91-era...

After a bit of digging, I am reasonably certain it is the F90III-Y Cluster Gundam Bandai 1/100 scale kit.

The people doing promo images for Seagate must like obscure Gundam kits or just thought it looks the least Gundam like half built.

Either that or, like several other corporate photo studios I know, they occasionally hit up the Goodwill and garage sales for assorted knicknacks to make photographed spaces look "lived in".

It could also be a copywrite thing. Sometimes to use a product in a advertisement/media in general, you need to get the permission of the copywrite holder. If you modify the product a bit (like how TV shows sometimes modify drink cans) this dodges the issue.
