The tripod consists of two main sections, the legs and the upper area, which are joined together by the 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 looks similar, and is probably a reference to, the tripods in the classic science-fiction novel, The War of the Worlds.
- The tripod has a bumper sticker saying: WE'VE BEEN TO EARTH.
- This is one of three sets to include an Alien Clinger.
- The Tripod is the focus of the Alien Conquest online game The Invasion: Walker Mode in which the player is attacking the tripods with the ADU Jet-Copter.
- The Tripod has a prison pod in its back where somebody can place civilian minifigures.
