    The only thing I can think of what happened in 2016 was when the UN tried to ban hentai and when that didn't pass, maybe companies rejoiced by releasing a wave of cast-off figures? I'm just spitballing an idea.

    Doing the database searches is relatively easy, though a bit tedious to punch all of the data into a spreadsheet. After that, tracking down example figures is relatively easy, and the articles aren't too hard to put together. Plus I usually uncover some interesting figure info in the process.

    I doubt the 2016 spike had anything to do with the political climate. I originally wondered if one of the prominent figure festivals may have celebrated a special anniversary that year, in which case many of the figure companies could have decided to add extra releases as part of celebration, but I couldn't find any info to support that. Furthermore, the spike seems strongly linked to castoff figures rather than figures overall, and if it was some kind of a tie-in with a festival anniversary event, I would expect the spike to be more pronounced for general figures as well.

    It's almost like there was some sort of secret contest between the figure companies to see who could make the most cast off figures that year.
