My take on a Fuchikoma/Think Tank-type design.

 

It fits a fig, might be my smallest-ever mech that does so. (Sadly, the hair doesn't fit).

 

Credit for the chairs usage goes to Lord Dane.

 

This design is a lot of fun, and pretty simple. I made four others in various color schemes. My goal is to make some sort of dio with all of them.

I really liked how this came out. I was inspired by Dane's recent Fuchikoma to build a quadrupedal tank of some kind. I honestly have no idea what scale this is, so I'd be interested to hear what size this looks like to you.

 

This also uses 11 2x2 bley disks, though I wish the ones on the legs had some kind of coloring on them, but I ran out of yellow stickers :(

 

Enjoy!

This build marks the first time I've used tank treads in a MOC. It also consists of nearly half my tan brick collection (okay... that's somewhat of an exaggeration;). I first built the abdomen section (which was originally going to be the head). I had that sitting around for a few weeks before I came back to the MOC, and came up with the tank head idea and went with that.

 

Built for Marchikoma!

Happy Marchikoma 2013 everyone!

I built a slightly-varied version of my earlier design in red for Marchikoma.

Of all my own Think Tanks, I'm most proud of this one. I hope all of you who participated in Marchikoma had as much fun as I did:)

 

Based on this bit of concept art by Aaron Beck.

Extendable neck! Those hinge pieces are unnecessarily tight however.

This is the last of my Think Tanks built on the Hachi frame. This one also happens to be my favorite. While it has been fun building with a common frame, I definitely enjoy building things from scratch more. This did however make for a more simplified build processes and a much less cluttered work space. I’ve included a link to my Brickshelf below with instructions on how to build the Hachi Frame.

Built by Kenbishi Corporation, the S309 Command Tank saw extensive action in the American theater of World War IV. Employed by American, British, and UN Peacekeepers, the S309 was designed to be piloted by front-line commanders. Unlike many other think tanks of the era, the S309 was equipped with highly advanced adaptive AI. This AI was capable of self-operation even in war zones, freeing the pilot to focus on command responsibilities. The S309 particularly excelled at enabling battlefield commanders coordinate their units in the urban combat scenarios frequently seen in the cities of Mexico. Precursor to the much smaller Fuchikoma line of think tanks employed by urban police units, such as Japan's Section 9.

 

This model was built for the second year of the Marchikoma build challenge.

What you are looking at is just about all of the purple bricks I own, and 1 very big reason for purists to look away;)

 

Built for Marchikoma! Check it out and build one too!

Obviously inspired the Ghost in the Shell think tanks & tachikoma.

 

Also, way late to the party for Marchikoma, but I had to build one when I got home to my Lego.

Tiny Fuchikoma for the Think Tank group! :3

A pirate tank is loose in the city, and the cops and military are outgunned. Can the Fuchikoma ambush end this threat?

 

These buildings are coming to Brickworld with me for the City of the Future collaboration.

 

I've really been enjoying building these office towers. I'm ordering a bunch of straight and curved trans panels from LUGBulk, I'm hoping to build them bigger in the future.

Tromas' recent Ghost in the Shell builds/discussion inspired me to re-watch the movie (it had been probably 10 years). The film inspired me to build a rover.

As WWII waged on, Adolph Hitler held secret meetings with some of Japan's top Anime minds. One of those people he met, was the grandfather of legendary Manga artist Masamune Shirow. This secret weapon was one of the proposed designs.

 

My contribution to Marchikoma 2013.

I had to take a break from my latest AFV project, it's driving me INSANE. This was a fun little diversion. Enjoy!!

The Fuichikoma-72 is piloted by the one and only Bermudafreze! A legend in the world of mechs and fuchikomas, we simply couldn't build a mech finale without deriving some inspiration from this guy.

 

This was created for our Iron Builder against the Erickson Brothers, and uses the Green flexible spike as heavy rockets, mandibles, and joints.

I decided to get in on the action this Marchikoma, so here is my first Think Tank (ever built, actually), the Medikoma. Built for fixing mecha and vehicles on the battlefield, the Medikoma is equipped with high-dexterity legs, dual gripper claws, and a healing substance emitter thingy. (Haven't quite worked out the details, just accept it)

A few people have asked me about instructions for my Fuchikoma, so I've made some.

 

This is the basic foundation, you can start here and embellish to your heart's content.

 

The photo quality is not the best, but I think everything you need to see is clearly visible.

 

If I've tagged you in the picture, it's because you've expressed an interest in the past. It was actually Jacob at Brickfair that bugged me enough to get me to make these instructions. So J~Money, you better build one, dude!

 

If something is unclear, let me know.
