The NEST Special Forces have retrofitted the Seeker Mk. II into the NESF-M08TS Jackal, focusing more on upgrading it’s offensive capabilities with the addition of the MS-DMSMQLR2 shoulder missiles and a lighter yet equally powerful SR-0004a U-Type Sniper Rifle. It also has twin auto guns mounted from the back to give it extra firepower in medium range combat.
Episode 1 of my video blog series is now up! 😀 In this episode, I talk about the Hero Factory Leg Extender piece and how it’s used for my mech building, tackling issues on leg and hip stability and a little on leg design. There’s also some discussion involving a 4×4 wedge, using 1×1 round bricks vs a 1L Technic connector, and lastly a little bit on that 1×2 plate with 45 degree slope on one stud.
Testing the new V3 framework, the NEST Special Forces have rolled out the Sailia test unit. This will serve as a basis for future NEST reFrames and is currently undergoing field testing operations for evaluation and feedback. Part of the evaluation is testing the new weapon systems as the Sailia is equipped with the experimental weapons ER-YYG01XI Energy Rifle and RG-ELMARAIL Rail Cannon.

The way I design and build my own LEGO mecha heads is similar in approach to how I go about making each and every mech build. In this tutorial, I’ll be discussing my 4 part build cycle that involves building a frame, plating and designing the frame, detailing, and rechecking.
If there’s something about the mechs Omar Gonzales (a.k.a. Chokolat Shadow) builds, it’s that they’re always excellently built with an amazing color palette and a fine attention to detail. His newest mech named the Queen of Hearts is the first of a series of builds entitled “Royal Flush” and is themed along the 4 houses of playing cards.
One reason why the New Earth Strategic Trust faction is such a dominant force in the Quorus Wars is due to their supreme tactics and efficient strategies and have outfitted specific units like the Eagle EWAC to prioritize recon and intelligence gathering. The Eagle EWAC is actually based on the NESF-M05E Eagle, a standard combat type reFrame that is deployed in heavy combat areas and serve as a main unit in NEST Special Forces ranks. The EWAC (Early Warning And Control) unit allows for efficient intelligence gathering that is sent to NEST’s tactical HQ as data to create up-to-date battle strategies. Extra thrusters were equipped on the Eagle EWAC to give it better mobility in order to move faster to key locations for data scanning as well as avoid enemy units. It is equipped with a light submachine gun (SMG-UZ01A) and a hand cannon mounted on its left arm for emergency combat purposes.
Awarded to only the most battle-hardened knights and reFrame pilots, the silver-plated Paragon reFrame is a heavily improved version of the AL-MXRITTER. Overall battle performance has been improved with a special emphasis was given to thrust capacity, allowing the Paragon to swiftly close in and engage opponents in melee combat where these units truly excel. As with its predecessor, it is equipped with the PA-LNCPRGN. an improved and deadlier polearm that first skewers opponents then shreds them to bits with the side blades, and the SH-DIAMDNX, a diamond-shaped shield that is well balanced and offers superior deflection both in CCQ.
