I think that you've done an excellent job at balancing the character/monster mix. I understand whey various people will individually want more of either, but I think you've managed to get the right proportion. And I think that you've responded well to gaps (more female characters, female monsters, animals,...)
I also hope that you don't sacrifice your one weird choice per set, as I usually find them to be an interesting addition. However, it is possibly a problem when it is an AP-themed set and both your choice and the case incentive come from outside the AP (not actually referring to this set, as it's obvious plans changed).
I'm okay with the switch to fewer sculpts going forward. I can see a time where we may get "sequel sets" for the popular AP's (ex Reign of Winter 2), because there will be enough cool things left to represent.
However, it is extremely unfortunate that it was implemented with this set, and apparently partway through the process. I'm quite certain the choices would have been different if this had been a smaller set from day 1. And personally, my group will be well into Book 3 by the release date, so the changes will impact my purchase... I'm already past the majority of the set, based on distribution.
As far as Tiny miniatures, I would be perfectly happy if I got a Small atomie or lyrakien (for example) which I could just say is Tiny. And size didn't stop us from getting a Quickling ;)
I'm very interested to see what comes next... and the one after that.
