First of all, this entire post is speculation and (to my knowledge), nothing has been confirmed by anybody, so take it with more than just a grain of salt.
Now on to the actual topic.

I dont have any statistics on merch releases, so this is just personal observation, but I have noticed a trend recently (or at least I think I have): The overall amount of Eva merch released seems to be increasing, but there is a significant lack of figures of the Units relative to the rest. There are a lot of other possible explanations for this, but to me it feels like Khara is giving out merchandising licenses more freely to build up some hype, while the modeling companies are holding back on figure releases to save up their ressources for the new Units we will see in FINAL

I choose to believe this.
Shinji: "Sooner or later I'll be betrayed... And they'll leave me. Still... I want to meet them again, because I believe my feelings at that time were real."
Ryuko: "I'm gonna knock ya on your asses!"
-Asuka: THINK IN GERMAN!!! -Shinji: Öh... Baumkuchen...
Hayashida: "As game developers, our work is special. All of us here can put smiles on very many people's faces with our work."

You have a point. I’ve seen way more Eva merchandise in the nearest anime store lately.

Is this mirrored in the Japanese market? It could also just be more Western stores wising up to the spending habits of the non-Japanese Eva fandom and increasing stock accordingly.

I would have to further look into that one, but at least for the figures it is definitely true
