    Maybe because the toy trend of mecha and henshin device crossover leads to terribly bulky and ugly designed mechas. No one is invested in getting the new pointless hammer/saw/ball+chain/etc armorment. Getting new mecha used to be a big deal and connected to the plot. Now they cone out of no where. And the final combi are ugly robots uninspiredly stacked.
