The Capture Chatiot is the largest of the Spectral Knight's vehicles from series 1, and for me is only slightly better than the Lancer Cycles. If it wasn't for the flight pods I'd probably rate it as the worse.
The Capture Chariot is a low, very wide, Tricycle, with wheels under the flight pods and one under the front seat. It has a large area at the back, behind the gun, where is can hold three staffs, and we used to hold other Spectral Knights, but as a design was just wasted space.

The Battle Pincher, as the product sheet calls it, is a flipper used to flip enemy troops or vehicles The only problem with this if the Capture Chariot was moving any target would crash into it before they were flipper out of the way. It it was stationary then the attackers woudl just move to the side.
The original prototype design had ridges on the flipper, though the final release toy was smooth and had a nice series of holograms of various horses, designed by David Dann.

The Flight Pods are the best feature of this vehicle, form the cool fire throwing holograms, to the flexibility of play using the pods to attack the Dagger Dart, Skyclaw or reign fire down on the Darkling Lords. As a toy the flight pods are basically balls cut in half with a seat and a back panel.
