Your Mechanimal builds definitely have a Phineas and Ferb feel to them!

Quoting Josh Cantrell This has a great organic look to it. Don't you just love those new joints (the ones on the "knees)? Do you remember trying to make stuff like this as a kid without those parts? It was tough. I love the retro look but I really appreciate some of the newer parts.
It was always tough working with turntables and hinges - they always had rigidity issues. You could make a work around by using mini-fig legs as hinges, a technique I still use. Not to say I don't love new pieces as well.

I think my favorite part is actually the yellow guy's control setup. Pretty inventive SNOT techniques there! The whole thing's cool, and keeps se well in the retro-space style.

Thanks all of you, I'm glad you think I nailed the classic space theme here. There were several mid-80s Lego sets I had in mind while making this, and it seems they translated into something we all relate to.

Great idea, beautifully executed. Looks like a 1980s set - a really good one!

Outstanding! The red walker is something they should have seen back then, cos they would have released it for sure. This is pure cs!

Miner-saur uses 2 of my favorite parts: the hinges in the tail loader and those rachet joints! Will the guys bring back some rock samples for the lab to analyze? :)

Always good stuff, David. The vehicle is very cool. I like the back end the best. But the real highlight here is the Miner-saur. This is your best robotic build yet. The shaping of it is great. I like the double-operator setup, and the legs are great. Some more excellent greebling for you there.

Brilliant! This looks like something Lego would have made as a kit in days gone by. I recognise the hinges in the waists of both vehicles but the knee joints are new to me. The mech looks great. I like details such as the thrusters on the side of the cockpit and the hoses on the feet. The tail being the grabber is excellent. The gun is a nice detail but looks far too puny to be of any use against all of the monsters that the ORRT keep meeting!

neat and the support vehicle is simple but really cool!
