BrickLink says he's unique, although it's only the combination of torso and head that is; the component parts have appeared in sets many times before.
I do like the new baseball cap with curved brim, so it's great that there's a spare one of those.
In the Star Wars calendar, we have a treat for minifig collectors. Like the mechanic, this 'Imperial Officer, Chin Strap' is unique to the calendar although the component parts have been used often in the past.
So, not a bad day, then...
City -- 8, useful minifig for populating your city.
Friends -- 7, nice parts, perhaps could have done with a few more though.
Star Wars -- 9, unique minifig, although not particularly interesting.
