If that's the case then it seems OK to me.

It would be nice if they stuck to a theme so you either likely wanted the entire set or didn't want it at all. I understand they want to appeal to as many as possible, but are they shooting themselves in the foot by having so many people not care about half the set? I personally only want one and have interest in another (but am done buying expensive-ass combiner members that don't combine) but I don't want it bad enough to buy 4 or 5 others I don't give a shit about.
I think they are hoping you'll be interested in at least 4 of the figs, and thus be more willing to plunk down for the set.
Personally, I like all of them but Circuit, so I'm pretty happy with the selection. However, I still felt the whole thing was priced a little too high. I would have felt a lot better had they priced the set closer to $200, or about double retail for the types of figs offered.
But I fully understand the dilemma of those that only wanted 1 or 2 figs and didn't want to pay for the full subscription. I was in that boat with the Joe set, and couldn't justify the $$$ for a couple Joes. There were several I would have liked, but only 2 or 3 I REALLY wanted.
