My recent class assignment was to (re)design the tripod, handling machine, and martian according to the original text. Here they are:
i think the blue backgrounds in the first two (especially in the second) is really oversaturated, to the point where it takes the focus off the subject. try toning it down a bit.
dram is right.
the design is excellent,
but that blue is really killing it.
even slightly de-saturating the blue really helps:

I like the design. pretty orginal.
i am not sure about the texture of the first two tho. if they are machine, they must be metal and they would need more reflections in harder edges.
also, try playing around with them in earth tones, i think that'd make em look real cool
