They revealed the story behind the new series.

The story starts at the Summer Solstice, 2345. People who calls
themselves "Moon Race", who presumably lives in Moon (duh), came down to
the Earth in giant bipedal machine.

They demanded land for them to live back on Earth, otherwise they'll
forcifully take the North American plain. Not all the Moon Race is
combative, and they just want happily coexist with people on Earth. Of
course, not all of them are like that.

That day, Rolan Seaac was to go to coming-of-age ceremony. But as the
Moon Race attacked, he was absorbed into a robot that came out of
stone statue(!)...

* It seems there is no MS technology in this universe, as none of mechas
are explicitly called "MS".

* 1/144 Turn A Gundam will most likly hit the shelf on April. There
probably will be some detail on that on the next issue of many model
magazines out there...

* Rapport Delux "Mobile Suit Gundam - U.C. volume 4" will be published
next month. Since they empahsized this will come out right before Turn A
Gundam, maybe it'll have some comments from Tomino himself???
