A derivative of the Crazy Tetrahedron. It is part of a series of eight variants named after the eight planets of the solar system.

Released in July 2011 this puzzle is part of a series of eight variants all named after the eight planets of the solar system. After the "Crazy 3x3x3 Plus"-series and the "Crazy Megaminx Plus"-series this is the third series with eight variants named after the solar system. The symbols used for the tetrahedra are identical to both predecessors. They even show a square faces instead of triangles.

Compared with the preceeding serieses this has variants where one or more sides have no circles at all. Without this it would have been impossible to find different puzzles for all eight planets. Like in the predecessors some of the circles move together with the surrounding layer and some not. These differences are achieved with different face pieces connected to cores identical to every varaint.

With four sides there are 3^4=81 possible configurations. Without symmetric duplicates there are only 12 variants left.
A variant 1111 is possible too. Solvingwise it is equivalent to 2222 which equals Jings Pyraminx.
A variant 0000 was sold separately under the name "Crazy Tetrahedron Standard".
A variant 0012 is not part of the series.
The remaining eight variants make up this series.
All eight variants come with an identical color scheme out of solidly colored plastic pieces (without stickers) and an uniform package. The eight variants can be distinguished from the outside by the symbol (and name) on the white center piece.

Saturn is the variant 0112. It has three circles of which two are connected to the surrounding layer.
