Tripod: The tripod consists of two main sections, the legs and the upper area, both of which are joined together by a midsection. The upper area features a circular cockpit, and a prison pod mounted on its back. The cockpit is surrounded by an opening and closing glass, that can be lifted up so that a minifigure can be placed inside. The entire upper area of the vehicle can separate from the legs to become an escape pod. The mid-section connects the cockpit and the legs, and features a poseable gun.
- This is one of two Alien Conquest sets not to include an Alien Defence Unit minifigure, the other being 7065 Alien Mothership.

- The tripod has a bumper sticker saying: WE'VE BEEN TO EARTH.

- The Tripod is the focus of an Alien Conquest online game in which you are attacking the tripods with the ADU Jet-Copter.
