The parts assortment are average, with the exception of the new mold featuring the dumbbell with numerical printing on it. I think this is a far better looking accessory than a brick built dumbbell.

Recommendation: no 3 / 5 by Jay

The Strongman isn't exceptional in any sense but its interesting and unique enough to feel like a deserved slot in Series 17. His appearance is also a fairly accurate rendition of the Circus Strongmen of old works well, and he has enough character to hold its own.

So, overall, a decent figure, but at the lower end of the spectrum in this series. Sure, he's rather detailed, but I'm not a fan of him overall. The moustache is pretty nice though!

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.

A nice enough figure, I guess, but one you'd only need one of. The mustache looks great at the front but more like a scarf at the back. With long hair it would not be a problem but with a bald head it looks a bit daft.
