The Gravity Ptera is a
Pterodactyl-type Zoid, created by the Guylos Empire.
The last of the Gravity Zoids, the Gravity Ptera is the only flying design amongst them. The Zoid uses a Gravity Wheel to provide both lift and power, making it a lot more agile than other flying Zoid types. Conceived mainly as a bomber, the Zoid's primary weapons are a pair of long-range heavy missile launchers.
When the other Gravity Zoids were re-released in Japan, their statistics were somewhat altered. However, the Gravity Ptera never received such a release, and thus lacks full tech data.
Battle Story appearances
Hasbro-designed Zoid, the Gravity Ptera never appeared in the official battle story. The model's box and label sheet carries the insigina of the fictional Guylos Empire, a region on the Eastern Continent populated by exiles.
Unlike the other three Gravity Zoids, the Gravity Ptera has never appeared in any Zoids anime or video games.
New American Release
*Assembly required. (Snap-together, no glue needed. Scissors or X-acto knife recommended for trimming off excess plastic bits.)
*The model's colours are moulded into the plastic, and it does not need any paint.
The Gravity Ptera comes on four frames, along with a "gravity wheel" ripcord motor, a clear canopy, two missile launchers, eight rubber caps, a small blue pilot, a ripcord, and label sheets. The Gravity Ptera is moulded in light blue and yellow, with a clear canopy.
The Gravity Ptera’s construction is relatively simple and straightforward. The Zoid uses a ripcord motor for motion; once activated the Zoid rolls forwards on a pair of wheels in its belly, while its beak opens and closes and the wings flap. The Zoid can also be positioned in a standing "Sentinel" mode with its head pointed forwards; in this mode all its features are still active.
The Gravity Ptera was released in North America in 2003. The Zoid was never included in any non-American releases, although after the collapse of the NAR, excess stock was resold in Australia.
