Ok, we all know that this recent installment of Gundam will not hit the
store shelves anytie soon, much less I've seen any fan subbing done so far.
So, you will just not discuss it at all just because it is not out to be
seen? Well, there's mech designs, cahracter designs, and even episode
summaries out in one of site I've been to. They had complete story upto very
recent episode, if you want to know where it is, feel free to ask me. Come
on! Let's be bold and try to talk about it! :)

Well, I hope director and story writer has something there for us.
Maybe having many MS's there means there is Base underneath, and I have seen
in one of the episode (atleast the summary) that There in fact is base
underneath the Mountain where they keep digging up the MS's and Loran's
Gundam had been down there to get weapon.

Well, they do capture some MS's from Moon race with Gundam. Trading, most
unlikely (What are they going to trade with?) and 'bought' is definetely
not. There is nothing that Earth people can give Moon Race (except for land
yeah but even that won't convince them to give up their MS's) that would let
Moon Race give up some of their valuable tool for invasion or card of
negotiation. What are they going to do? Give earth money which moonrace can
do nothing with?

I Agree.
