Think Tank and Major Kusanagi LEGO renditions

Think tank is a slang term used to describe a robotic weapons platform that makes use of artificial intelligence to enhance its abilities. Most of the think tanks portrayed in Ghost in the Shell (manga, films, and series), along with other machinery, (e.g. attack helicopters such as the Jigabachi AV) are developed and manufactured by a fictional company named Kenbishi Industries.

The above is Cole Blaq‘s rendition of such a machine. In the foreground is a custom lego friends minidoll by Mike the Maker depicting the cyborg Major Motoko Kusanagi. Here are two more lego renditions: by gambort, and by obscurance.

    Holy cow, i have been trying to make a model of a robotic walker style tank out of lego for ages, is this a purchasable set? if not, do you have any sort of making instructions for it? thanx

      Tim, no, it’s not a purchasable set, but a creation by Cole Blaq—have a look at his photostream over at Flickr, there he has many more robotic walkers like the above pictured one. From the pictures you get an idea of how they’re composed. I have no idea if Cole has published instructions proper somewhere, but you could contact him via the comments-sections at his stream. As a rule, people from the afol-community are quite helpful.
