"Was really hoping for better."

Third-party transformers are sometimes hit or miss. Some are exceedingly awesome (e.g., MMC's Terminus Hexatron), and some are excruciatingly bad (e.g, KFC's "AirDancer" cassettes.) This tetra jet... just sort of sits in the "meh" category.

As a Tetra Jet, it's not bad. It feels pretty solid, with the only major disappointment being the open bottom where you can see the unused robot parts.

In robot mode, it's less impressive. The "wings" formed from the outer tetra shell just don't look "right" - no matter how you position them. There's very little articulation, and a lot of the kibble hides out on the back, making it very rear-heavy.

The instructions for transforming are nearly inscrutable, and only show jet-to-robot. This is doubly unfortunately, as it comes packaged as the robot mode. Fortunately, I was able to find a video online that showed the other direction.

Overall, for $20, you certainly could do worse. This will probably stay in tetra jet mode, simply because that's probably the more "acceptable" looking of the two.

Mint Box Description

A mint box generally has no noticeable flaws. This doesn't mean it is a C10 box, but that it doesn't have any significant damage to the box. It still may have wear to the window, and a small amount of wear to the box that is noticeable upon close inspection.

C9 Box Description

A C9 box is still considered very displayable and may have a kink, ding, minor fray to an edge, etc. The box is still case fresh and unopened with factory sealed tape on both sides.
