I honestly don't understand the complaints of the majority about the figs. Have you guys seen what the CITY and Castle Advent Calendars look like? If I remember right, they also include simply regular minifigs, nothing really special there. From a marketing point of view, I don't see any sense putting all new figs or some exclusive figs on a supplemental non-regular set, where obviously TLG would use those new and exclusive figs as 'drawing factors' for otherwise not-so-great regular sets (Shaak Ti/Saesee Tiin in the T-6 shuttle, Eeth Koth/Quinlan Vos in the upcoming Republic Frigate, just to name a few).
Yeah, you're right. The figures here aren't really that special, but there's no real reason why they should be, maybe apart from the Christmas Yoda figure for extra incentive.
Still, maybe it's just me, but all of these figures are ones I'd want, even though I already own most of them. Clones and Stormtroopers are always nice, and I don't own that particular Astromech.

What is that brown thing next to Gunray? Is that the walking holoprojector that he talks to Sidious on? Looks kinda odd, especially with no hologram on it.
I think that's meant to be a Crab Droid. I don't know, it's not as recognisable as the other ones.
