Recommendation: yes 5 / 5 by Jay

The Retro Space Hero is an exceptional minifigure oozing with personality, imagination and just the right amount of nostalgia. I'm surprised that LEGO took this long to pay homage to retro science fiction, but at the same time, I'm glad they waited till this point to get it so right.

First off I would like to point out that he has a new helmet and laser mold. This new laser is superior to the older model. His printing is completely unique from the dual molded legs to the molecule symbols on his arms. He appears to be based off a 50's style of science fiction spaceman. One of the highlights of series 17.

The parts assortment are above average. You get a brand new amazing ray gun design in retro style, accompanied with those geeky old fashioned space suit and yellow cape. I think it's quite nice to see the designer paying homage to something rather retro which millennials might not be able to appreciate.

Do I like this figure? Well… not really. I'm just not a fan of his color scheme as well as his overall look, plus sand green and grey, while a good color to get, make for a dull finish. His detailed printing and new molds help to bump him up a little, but he's a below average figure for me.

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).

An absolutely brilliant figure and one of my favourites of the series.

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.
