Fictionally, what makes a transformer a Cyberjet as opposed to just another random TF with a jet mode is unclear, as they have received very little fictional attention.
The distinguishing features of the Cyberjet toys, however -- small size, high poseability, intricate transformations, and pressure-launch missiles -- don't really translate well to fiction anyway. The molds were developed for the Generation 2 toyline, and have subsequently been redecoed in other lines since. They were among the earliest fully-poseable transformers, prefiguring the Beast Wars line to come. They also feature lightpiping in their heads. While this feature is used on larger toys to give them "light-up" eyes, due to their small size, the Cyberjets seem to have illuminated faces which lack the usual facial features. The Cyberjets were also the first Transformers appearance for the "pressure-launch" style missile launchers.
There are three different Cyberjet molds. Each mold was released twice, one as a Decepticon and again as a Autobot, during Generation 2. Both the Robot Masters and Universe lines had one unique new deco for each mold, and Timelines Ricochet was a fifth new color scheme for the Hooligan mold. See "Footnote" also.
In addition, the Cyberjet transformation scheme has proven to be very popular among Hasbro/Takara designers, and aside from outright repaints the exact or near same transformation design has been used in numerous toys over most of the succeeding generations.
The list of redeco:
- Navalized Advanced Tactical Fighter (NATF) F-22 Raptor mold
- Hooligan (G2)
- Wind Sheer (Universe)
- Ricochet (Timelines)
- F-117 Nighthawk mold
- Air Raid (G2) / Aero Raid
- Air Raid (Universe)
- Delta Seeker
- "Advanced fighter jet" mold
- Space Case (G2)
- Strafe (G2)
- Space Case (Universe)
- There are some non-Cyberjet toys but with the similar transformation sequence:
