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 purchased my first minifig when the simpsons original series came out. I was very impressed! The minifigs are compatible with many popular sets. I have the lord business tower set and there is an empty "think tank" spot to put a minifig you have. I use this as an opportunity to display my newest one! I would like them better if they had a Non-blind-bag option, but still an overall great product!

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.
