IMS-BT-002 "B-Type mk II 'Harvester'"
Another oldie, but a goodie. This bad boy is quite large, and of course, is fully poseable and carries a minifig. Check out the chest module--it is completely made of technic girders and is almost unbreakable.
About this creation
IMS-BT-002 “Harvester” B-Type Mk II

Imperial High Command was furious with the unsanctioned actions taken by Unit 912 and even more insensed at his failure to accomplish his mission. However, any disciplinary measures taken against 912 were mitigated in light of the fact that his defeat had finally revealed just how great of a threat the Ancient Remnant’s technology represented to Imperial supremacy.

While Unit 912 recovered from his injuries, IMS’ developers were given a priority task of upgrading and enhancing the remains of the B-Type mk I. It was rumoured that the mysterious benefactor behind the upgrading of the B-Type mk I had convinced High Command to become more willing to adapt the Remnant’s technology. Following the new directive, the developers immediately went to work creating a viable prototype.

After nearly a year of experimental development, IMS produced a functional prototype, dubbed the “Harvester” B-Type mk II. Very little remained of the mk I’s original structure, with the developers having made great strides during the intervening year in understanding and adapting the Ancients’ various innovations. The mk II was much larger than its predecessor, mounting double the armor and easily twice the firepower of the mk I.

The unit’s drive was by far the largest improvement over the mk I, however. Long before the arrival of the B-Type mk I, IMS has been working on a prototype gravitic reactor that would allow a unit to move by using focused gravity beams to push itself away or pull itself toward gravity fields, even distant ones. The gravitic reactor also emitted no heat or other byproducts, and could bend sensor probes away from itself, essentially giving itself an active stealth capability. However, the gravitic drive also drew enormous amounts of power, and up until the advent of the B-Type’s plasma reactor, there hadn’t been an available compact power source suitable for mounting on a combat mech. Thus the size of the unit was increased to incorporate the hybrid power plant.

In addition to the overhaul that the power plant received, the B-Type mk II’s inner structure was similarly revamped. Incorporating what they had learned from the mk I, IMS’ technicians increased the durability of the mk II’s internal frame, giving the unit enormous strength and mobility for its size. Its cockpit module in particular, was heavily reinforced utilizing a revolutionary new exoskeletal structure that made it nearly indestructible. Its manual control system was also supplemented with a new neural input type that was being tested on the prototype for the IMS-MID-011 “Hepsis” mecha.

The entire outer structure of the mk II was double armoured with the same ferro-ceramic composite type as the mk I, giving it high durability, but light weight. Coupled with the power of the gravitic drive, the mk II was extremely agile for its size. The full coverage energy shields were replaced with two directed energy shields mounted on the forearms, further increasing the unit’s defensive capabilities.

The B-Type mk II was outfitted with a large assortment of heavy weapons, making it a fearsome opponent. The SWD-“Sun-Render” Beam-chain sword was retained from the mk I, though the mk II rarely ever needed it, as a single punch from one of its huge fists was often enough to crumple another unit. The forearms were outfitted with twin-linked, rapid fire heavy beam cannons, and the shoulder units were equipped with six internally stored, short range, high yield missiles. But the unit’s most fearsome weapons were by far its back-pivot mounted twin XMS-8332 “Doom Cannon” nanomachine blasters capable of destroying even a heavily defended target with but a glancing hit.

Needless to say, High Command was impressed with the design, but desired that it be field tested before being put into full production. Unit 912, eager to atone for his previous failure in combat volunteered for the mission and was subsequently assigned the mk II.

912 was issued a small battle force and returned to the front. Unlike his previous frontal assaults, Unit 912 was cautious this time, and observed his enemy at first, engaging mainly in espionage and sabotage operations, one of which resulted in the theft of another advanced Remnant mech, the R-Type mk I by 912’s lieutenant, Foresta Orbile. Eventually, however, the memory of his defeat at the hands of the enemy was too much for 912 and he impulsively launched an assault on the Ancient Remnant, once again inflicting heavy damage, but also ultimately being driven off by the Ancients’ new generation of advanced mecha. During the past year, the Neo-Void had not been the only ones continuing to develop their war machine.

What finally pushed Unit 912 over the edge however, was the return of Grant Hart in a newly produced VRMS-WT-002 “W-Type mk II”, whose capabilities were often a match and more for the B-Type mk II. Seeing his old foe alive moved 912 to a berserk rage, resulting in several devastating clashes between the two pilots. Ultimately, during their final battle, 912 was finally able to destroy Hart and the W-Type mk II, but Unit 912 was also mortally wounded and his B-Type mk II was almost completely destroyed.

Foresta Orbile was able to retrieve her beloved superior’s remains and place them in stasis during their retreat back to Neo-Void territory.

Only one B-Type mk II was ever produced. Its remains would become the B-Type mk III.

Quoting Daniel Calleri So the boys and I are totally awed by the incredible mech's you build! That you may have seen our initial attempts is humbling. The boys are, in a word, jealous. We also really appreciate the frames. I am sure they will be learning from all the great information you have shared. Very cool indeed!!
Thanks Daniel! The fact that you ended up commenting on this mech, means you actually looked through my stuff, not just the front page. I hope you like what you saw. Feel free to use anything I've got posted here. Thats why its here. If you have lego digital designer, many of these creations have instructions to help you along. Enjoy!

Quoting joshua vance PLZ REPLY. is it possible for you to replicate this in LDD (And include the download file)
Unfortunately this model is not replicable in LDD as it uses some very un-conventional techniques in its building. Believe me, I've tried. I can make something close, but not exact. Sorry.

This was a tough build--I don't think even I could re-duplicate it. Definitely a one-of-a-kind. Though its still about 50% bricks. If you want to see the one that is 90% technic, then look at the B-Type mk III. It was practically indestructible. It fell from a ten-foot high shelf onto a hardwood floor, and only the head popped off.

I like the idea of making a mech with technic girders. I, for once, made a attempt to make a mech with a cockpit made out of girders, too. The end result was a deformed thing that looked like a cross with a rabbit and a cube. Not so appealing, but anyways, kudos to you!

Quoting Not Applicable This is Impressive. I would'nt want to shoot it out with that Killing Machine.
:D No, probably not. In the timeline I made for these, its guns can terminate even much larger units than itself, because the nanomachines just keep replicating and eating away at whatever it they hit, so even a glancing hit can be fatal.

Quoting Rags naRock Very imposing, I like the helmet look the head has, and you put in some great features, like the shoulder missiles and the cannons on the back. Looks like it's really pose able too, so you definitely get a 5.
Finally! Someone noticed the head! It was one of my favorite features. Speaking of which, I don't know if you've noticed, but I'm all about the gimmicks and features! They make the model for me, more than anything else!

Quoting Jesse Long Wow, now THAT is a mecha, Mithryl. How tall is it anyway and how many pieces did you use to build it, too? Please let me know. Thank you for the response.
It stands at 15-16" tall, as I recall. Maybe a bit shorter. It uses 800-1000 pieces altogether. I think. Its been a while, so I might be wrong.

Thank you! I wished this was transformable. I've had zero luck making lego transformers that are durable, poseable, cool looking AND fit a minifig.

You already are. You've got your won style of building that you excel at. I definitely couldn't do what you do. The trick is to keep building and trying new things.

Quoting Mike Johnson Nothing's better than a giant black mech with big guns and blades! I was wondering though where you get the parts for the joints. I haven't seen them in the sets sold in the stores? Let me know if you have the time. Thanks.
The shoulder, elbow and waist joints come from the Exo-Force sets, the knees are the joints that come in the AT-AT, AT_TE, Exo Force Mobile Defense Tank and others. The ankles and neck are bionicle ball joint and socket assemblies. The hands are made of click joints. I hope that helps. As you can see, it uses nearly every type of joint to make this.
