Recommendation: yes 5 / 5 by Jay

Rocket Boy is simply a spectacular minifigure and is my favourite pick from Series 17. He has so much retro charm and exudes a sense of curiosity when it comes to space exploration that most boys who grew up idolising astronauts, rockets and spaceships will be able to relate to.

Recommendation: yes 4.5 / 5 by Vaderfan2187

I think this figure looks good and suitably cute, and I would have rated it a 4/5; HOWEVER, because of the Classic Space torso, I have to bump it up by 0.5!

Recommendation: meh 7.6 / 10 by WhiteFang

The parts assortment are excellent. The biggest unexpected bonus is the Classic Space torso on the minifigure. TLG could simply give you a plain torso but instead, they sweeten the entire appeal of this minifigure and made it even better than I thought. The handrawn coloured depiction of the Classic Space flag is very nicely done with lots of originality in it. The Rocket Suit is equally astounding and amazing too. I love this minifigure very much and it served as a huge inspiration for any child to dream and venture into the unknown deep space.

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 rocket itself has some nice details such as the printed rivets (I presume) on the front and back. Best of all, his torso is printed with a classic space logo, something that's sure to excite fans no end as it's the first time it's appeared on a grey one.

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.
