Is the expansion really worth the $40, or is that just for the huge miniature. Seems a tad much to be an additional 40% of the base game. The only real incentive I see to buy it at this point is the fact that it’s an exclusive; I can’t even find much on what it does for gameplay.

It also adds a semi-cooperative mode to the game, since it makes the game (the black rose) more powerful and so the players have to partially collaborate to keep it at bay, otherwise everyone loses.

In the recent Q&A with the game designer on KickStarter, Marco goes over how Crono works. Besides the figure, the what it adds to the game is an increased difficulty to the Black Rose (the mechanic that's working against all the players). It serves as a looming boss that if left alone makes it hard for any player to win. I recommend checking it out to see if this is a scenario that you will be interested in.

For me, I think its a great mode to play to keep the game from getting stale.
