It's okay. Super tiny. Really easy 1 minute assembly. The packaging is the worst! Sold by LEGO in the original packaging...not so much. I've never seen a LEGO sold in a clear plastic baggy. Total let down on that part.

Recommendation: no 4.08 / 5 from 26 reviews

I recently purchased 16 minifigures from the website hoping to get 12 or 13 of the set. I was disappointed in only 9 out of 16. I expected a few doubles, but I did not expect triplets of the Yuppie and Butterfly girl. I knew I was taking a risk, but that was a bit harsh. I wish I could have bought them from the closest Lego store, but since it was a week after the series came out, they were all sold out. The problem I have now is that I would like to complete my set and I do not know if buying another 10 and taking a second risk would be worth it. The product series is still solid and movie breaks or special series are good breaks from the regular series. There are still many more occupations and other costume options out there, so I hope the series continues for a long time, as long as the price does not climb too much higher.

Recommendation: meh 7.6 / 10 by WhiteFang

The parts assortment are average. The minifigure is generally well designed with the new wet suit and supposedly new wavy hairpiece.

This guy is a cool dude, and his head is highly reusable for regular minifigures. A great Collectible Minifigure indeed!

Recommendation: no 3 / 5 by Jay

Despite surfers being quite commonplace in the LEGO Minifigures Series, the Pro Surfer manages to still feel fresh thanks to the shark surfboard. It's literally that great of an accessory that it more than makes up for the lack of originality with his character.

I have to admit, I don't think that Series 17 is nearly as strong as some of the previous series. There are very few "must have" figures for me in this series, in fact, I think my list only consists of the: Chef, Vet, Corn Cob Guy, Hot Dog Guy, Rocket Boy, and Elf Maiden. Six out of sixteen isn't a good ratio for "must haves." On the flip side, I generally don't care for the Surfer, Strongman, Butterfly Girl, Gladiator, Yuppie, or Fitness Instructor. That's six figures that I find generally uninspiring (again, not a good ratio).

The costumed characters such as the rabbit, pig, and hot dog have been wildly popular, so it's nice that the Corn Cob Man is one of the most common in this series. The other two common figures are the Circus Strong Man, which seems an odd choice, and the Mystery Character.

No bi-coloured limbs or back printing, but he doesn't need them, he looks spot-on without.
