Why are there no longer any iconic characters?

Since about 2006 we've hit a dry spell. There is much content, but none of it definitive of our time. There is no image that strikes out and defines anime recently. There is an abrupt issue in the lack of real creativity, where we are bankrupt on making something unforgettable and even synonymous with this time.

There are no Evas, no Sailor Senshii, no Ranmas, or Gokus, not even a Haruhi Suzumiya. In the past near decade we haven't struck anything visually that benchmarks the medium.

The closest we get to this is Miku; a commercial figure for a music program and its subsequent games. By and large her image has taken hold, and met with wide welcome reception.

This is a long way of saying Miku anime when.

Au contraire.
You have a defining and iconic character when everybody copies that character. Having lots of different characters means that people are more creative about their works.
