[u][b]SPIN METAL BY DOZENS[/b][/u] Yes, the vanguard obtain an obscene amount of spinmetal. While doing various vanguard tasks, you may stumble upon a mission icon labeled with a star, prompting you to assassinate some rouge enemy. Upon completing the task you are rewarded approximately 11 spinmetal! [i]But wait, there's more! [/i] Upon reaching Vanguard rank 2, this amount [b]doubles[/b]! Yes, by doing 2 mere vanguard side missions, you can obtain ~45 spinmetal! That's almost an entire stack of item space in your inventory! What are you going to do with all of it? If only there were a way to exchange it for something of value? Hmm... [spoiler]Not to mention the ease of obtaining other valuable resources once the full game is out *wink wink*[/spoiler]

One of the materials specifically mentions Venus. Spinmetal is on earth. We may find out what we'll find on the moon tomorrow, and Mars is another explore that'll probably yield a unique material. Of course this is all speculation based on what I've seen so far. Your thoughts on the matter?
