The parts assortment are average. However, I like those new printed parts on the 1x1 flat tile featuring a speaker while the 1x1 cheeseslope featuring a number pad. When you add those parts together onto a walkie-talkie, you get a big flashy mobile phone typically seen in the 1980s and 1990s. The appearance is very sleek especially with the aviators sunglass.
I quite like this Yuppie minifigure, and I think he's pretty good. However, he's definitely not a standout, just an “above average" figure.
It's fun and it properly pays homage to an 80s pop culture staple that I can't really fault it. It's slightly unremarkable from the accessory department but I do appreciate it when pop culture references are executed well in the LEGO minifigure series.
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 phone comprises a standard walkie-talkie, which is rare in light grey, a printed 1x1 tile for the speaker and a printed 1x1 cheese slope for the keypad.
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.
