The Grav Runner[1] is a robot vehicle in Exo-Force.

Description

The Grav Runner is the cockpit of the Battle Arachnoid, consisting of 34 non-minifigure parts. Its windshield is marked with a Code Brick, which would unlock the Battle Arachnoid's data on the Exo-Force website. This small hover vehicle is powered by twin flame engines. A green orb underneath the vehicle is depicted in the instruction manual as containing a skull, incidentally resembling a Mind Control Orb; however, most official images and the instructions' part list instead place this skull in the Battle Arachnoid's mini-robot.

In 4850307 LEGO Battles, the flames and underside orb are absent. The orange bricks are recolored Bright Yellowish Green to match the Alien color scheme in Mars Mission.

Background

The Grav Runner is manned by a Devastator robot during the Deep Jungle storyline. It can detach from the Battle Arachnoid to function as a smaller aerial attack vehicle. In its Code Brick description, the Grav Runner is referred to as a "short-range air fighter".[source?]

In 4850307 LEGO Battles, the Grav Runner is the Mounted unit in the Alien army. Despite being a vehicle, it is classified as a minifigure unit rather than a special unit, and therefore is built from Breeding Pits at the cost of 250 bricks. The Grav Runner's stats are 3/5 strength, 350 life, and 4/5 speed, making it fairly fast and battle-effective when attacking in close-range in a group.
