It looks like the Series 17 LEGO Collectible Minifigures (71018) have started to show up at Walmart stores early on the east coast. One of the people who have found them in stores is Brick Revolution who found a case in the LEGO aisle. The official release date for this wave is May 1.
Coincidentally, LEGO has released a new teaser video showing off the Highwayman minifigure which is still supposed to be a “secret” but he has already been found and revealed at LEGOLAND Billund.
It looks like the Series 17 LEGO Collectible Minifigures (71018) have started to show up early in some places and we have a first look at the secret Highwayman minifigure that is included with wave. A user named lego_collector_dad has gotten a hold of the Highwayman at LEGOLAND Billund and he shown off the minifigure over on his Instagram page.
He has a black torso with dual molded legs. To complete the look he has a tricorn hat with a bandana, and a cape. The accessories include two Flintlock pistols. I’m not sure of all the secrecy behind it but he appears to be a fairly generic character.
Yesterday, the official images of the Series 17 LEGO Collectible Minifigures were shown off the first time and there are more details coming out today. Brickset has gotten a hold of a box from LEGO and they have revealed the box distribution for the minifigures in this wave.

As with previous Collectible Minifigure series, I’ve already gotten a few requests for the feel guides I put out for this series and there’s no better time than now to do one. I’ll be using the references from the box image to discuss how to feel for a particular character. Again, some may not need a guide but for those who are interested in one, hopefully this helps.
Surfer Boy: The surfboard is the easiest thing to feel for.
Gourmet Chef: There are quite a few things that make her easy to find including the chef’s hat, pie, and whisk.
Hot Dog Vendor: The curved hot dog and bun pieces are the things that stand out for him.
Elf Maiden: You should feel for the sword piece as it is the easiest thing on the Elf Maiden to find.
Circus Strongman: The new round barbell piece is the only thing you should feel for when finding him.
Yuppie: The easiest thing to feel for is the mobile phone as it has a pretty distinct design.
Veterinarian: I think the rabbit piece is the only thing you feel for.
Highwayman: Although he’s only a silhouette and a mystery, there are many reports that this minifigure is a Highwayman which should have a large hat. I’ll update when there are more details.
Connoisseur: There are a few things that make him stand out such as the bulldog, baguette, as we as the little hat.
Butterfly Girl: Her large wings make her stand out very easily.
Roman Gladiator: The only thing that really stands out for him is the large trident piece.
Corn Cob Guy: He should be easy to feel for with the large corn mold piece.
Retro Space Hero: He has a few cool parts to feel for such as the new ray gun and helmet.
Dance Instructor: Her large curly hair piece stands out for me. There’s also a 1×1 round brick that you can use as well.
Battle Dwarf: The hammer should be more than enough to find him. You can also use his mohawk as well.
Rocket Boy: He shouldn’t be hard to find with his large rocket costume mold.
At the 2017 New York Toy Fair, LEGO has revealed the Series 17 LEGO Collectible Minifigures. As you can see from the image above from The Brick Show, there are a lot of new characters as well as some rehashes. There are 16 in the wave to collect with one of them still a mystery.
