I couldn't agree more with this, but I bet there is a simple reason. For example, they don't want a Nazi fiigure - but that means they have to cut Tree 7, which means they lose 10 figures. Or something like that.

Part 1 has only one dropped figure, and whaddya know, a Nazi.

Part 2 has three dropped sculpts, and I don't have the slightest idea what could be a problem with them.

Part 3 only has that little kid dropped.

Part 5 dropped six figures, including a Nazi, a hooded figure with a cross over his face, and some bewbies.

Part 6 dropped two, and neither looked particularly offensive.

Part 7 dropped two other unoffensive figures.

Part 8 has six figures dropped, one being another woman and another wearing a tutu and generally looking disturbing.

Part 9 dropped four figures, one being what looks like a naked kid, another with a very large gun.

Part 10 dropped two figures; another Nazi!

Part 11 dropped two more unoffensive figures.

Part 13 dropped one, the kneeling Geronimo.

Part 14 dropped two, a chibi Kinnikuman and another Geronimo.

Part 15 dropped three, including a certain Super Rare master and Black Emperor.

Part 17 dropped one, the baby Meat.

Part 18 dropped one, the Kinnikuman with key.

Part 19 dropped one more innoffensive guy.

Part 20 dropped two, one Solder in what looks like a priest's robes.

Part 21 is the big whammy, losing six figures... but wait! Satan Cross exists, does he not? Just in flesh. We also have the Black Hole Sunshine and Spinning Head Ashuraman.

I think Veers is on to something, but for whatever reason, many apparently unproblematic figures got the axe in the process. Also, a pattern is formed in how many figures are dropped from a specific series.

Parts 1, 3, 13, 17, 18, and 19 dropped one figure.

Parts 6, 7, 10, 11, 14, and 20 dropped two figures.

Parts 2 and 15 dropped three figures.

Part 9 dropped four figures.

Parts 5 and 8 dropped six figures.

Part 21 would eventually come to drop a total of six sculpts, but in reality one happens to be an uncommon figure in flesh and two are well-known super-rares. So it fluctuates between 3 and at most 6.

Part 1 has 20 figures total, down to 19.

**19**Part 2 has 20 figures total, down to 17.

**17**Part 3 has 12 figures total, down to 11.

**19**Part 20 has 10 figures total, down to 8. -----

Part 21 has 15 figures. It went down to 9... eventually. With SC, it was 10, and with SHE and BHS, 12. -----

This is an absolute mess, but I'm working on it. Still, you guys might see what I'm getting at - after knowing certain figures had to be cut for silly PC reasons, perhaps the manufacturing process would be streamlined by throwing sets together? The patterns of 17 and 19 figures from a single part or from two parts combined is at least suspicious, if it means anything at all.
