On May 1st 2017, I went to Toys R Us and found them. I was so excited about the series that I called the day before and asked if they would have them the next day. I was full of joy when they said that they would have them. It took me about an hour to feel every single one in the series. Yes, I did find the Mystery Figure. Now I don't fully understand why LEGO made the Highwayman a mystery figure but on the other hand it is my favorite figure in the series. The only figure that I don't care for is the Surfer Dude and I will tell you why. LEGO has already made a Surfer Dude in the past and I don't like when LEGO repeats minifigures in Minifigures series. Anyway, that is all. I think LEGO did a terrific job with Series 17. If you are thinking of buying these I give you full support!!!
The parts assortment are average. The minifigure is generally well designed with the new wet suit and supposedly new wavy hairpiece.
This guy is a cool dude, and his head is highly reusable for regular minifigures. A great Collectible Minifigure indeed!
Despite surfers being quite commonplace in the LEGO Minifigures Series, the Pro Surfer manages to still feel fresh thanks to the shark surfboard. It's literally that great of an accessory that it more than makes up for the lack of originality with his character.
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.
No bi-coloured limbs or back printing, but he doesn't need them, he looks spot-on without.
