War of the Worlds Tripods

War of the Worlds - Tripod Gait
Animated analysis of different types of gaits a WOTW walker might have.

Do-it-yourself paper model of the WOTW walker from the 1978 musical(?) version.

AintItCoolNews: WOTW
Speculative drawings of WOTW alien and tripod.
the above WOTW sketches are not "production sketches" - but rather were done by Kermici Farid - a professional production designer and storyboard artist from France - (worked on CRIMSON RIVERS among others) and he did these after he saw the latest trailer to satiate and make more clear sense regarding what he saw in the trailer. He is not associated with Spielberg's film, but very talented regardless.

Test Animation
Big Quicktime file (that eventually crashed my browser) of a CGI generated tripod from the 1978 version.

Screencap Galleries
Some fog-enshrouded images from various sources.

"A probe, looking for Ray's family"

"Tripod Call" Sound for download!
Due to popular demand, you can now download the unique and scary "tripod call" sound that is heard when the Tripods call their comrades in the film.
Sounds like a tuba.

Rotten Tomatos Forums
Some Spielberg tripod pics, a few pre 2005 favorites, and some funnies (like a picture of a 3-legged dog named Tripod).

Fighting Machines Gallery
Lengthy thread on alternate conceptions of the WOTW walker.

A version from 1955.

    Yo! The probe is not looking for Ray's family specifically. It is just looking for recon purposes!
