The picture of the tripod with some pieces attached looks like it is not allowed. See the second bullet of R11. Could you pick up the tripod and leave the extra pieces behind?
R11 - MISSION MODEL HANDLING
• You are not allowed to take Mission Models apart, even temporarily.
• If you combine a Mission Model with something (including the Robot), the combination must be loose enough that if asked to do so, you could pick the Mission Model up and nothing else would come with it.
