A Tall Tower Before and After Its Collapse

This is a tower I've built out of SuperMags. It consists of hexagons (not stabilized internally) which are connected vertically. The bars in the lower part of the tower are all long whereas those in the upper part are all short. The second picture shows the connection between the lower and the upper part:

Unfortunately, at some point during my efforts to make it even higher, the tower resisted by collapsing violently, resulting in this picture:
