↑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.
