It's hard to not love Corn Cob Guy. He's bursting with charm, personality and humour – three things that best embodies the spirit of the LEGO Minifigures Series.
Overall, I like corn, so this is a good figure. If I had to fault it, though, I must say that I don't like his bushy moustache. It looks rather stern, almost like a constable's face, and the food costumes are funny and ridiculous. Another thing I would have loved would be if the minifigure came with a minifig-scale corn. I know food costume characters usually don't have accessories, but we need a minifig-scale corn piece, and this would be the perfect place to introduce it.
The parts assortment are nil but the overall built is focusing the corn cob design being donned on a minifigure. On that approach, the design was very well established even though I was secretly hoping for a miniature corn cob held by the minifigure.
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).
Once again the costume fits snugly around the figure's head and body leaving just the face exposed. The back of the outfit consists of a couple of leaves/husk with the kernel poking out the top.
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.
