More wall scrolls, Affordable figurines/action figures (Prices varied greatly from $10 to over $50 depending on the character and who sold it), and Lolita or other cool Japanese clothing in Tall American Size.

Some Elfen Lied merch!!! I swear I didn't see as much Elfen Lied merch as I would have liked T_T

Also I maybe some cheaper plushies? A lot of the plushies really seemed to be a rip-off

Of course this is an anime convention....but with the growing fandom of J-pop, K-pop, and asian dramas...it would be nice if there was a larger selection for that category.

Yeah this year no dealers were selling games which was sad. I did see a booth selling H-games but that's all. There's always next year.

I came in here to post exactly what you guys are saying: GAMES!! Seriously, I wandered up and down the dealer's room looking for a game booth but couldn't find one. I was hoping to find some rare or imported games but nope. I had to get my gaming fix from the swap meet.

I agree...we definitely need more games. Especially new and imported games(BONUS!). However, I was satisfied with the games they sold at Swap Meet.

Klonoa stuff.  T^T

Lots of swap meeters selling the games (mostly the two on GBA), no merch at Dealers.

Lesser-known game stuff.

One thing that was COMPLETELY missing from the Dealer's room: Momoi CDs!

I mean seriously! We can get her t-shirts that she's importing from Japan. I remember seeing one of her concert DVDs from when she was with Under 17, but God forbid we get one of her CDs!! I'd REALLY like to not have to pay for full price of all that shipping to get them here in the USA damn it >.<

I'd hate to be AX-ish, but I would like more American anime licensing companies present (Funimation, Geneon, Bandai, etc.) and video game distributors / promos (Sony, Nintendo, Bandai Namco, Capcom, Zynga, etc.)

ELECTRONICS!!!!!! 2010 sucked when it came to video game vending. some shit about some venders not showing up for whatever reason. I ALWAYS spend hundreds on imports for my consoles. Heck, I even bought a Imported Pink PSP in 2008. (perfect gift for my sister's B-day).  I was very disappointed in 2010. I  hope Fanime notices this post in some way, shape or form. Maybe we can have something sweet in 2011??

I miss the booth that sold anime soundtracks there were so many cds I wanted to buy last year but they were not there and I'm not sure if they were there in 2009.  :-\

Also what happened to Japan Video Games? they had a booth last year.

And just for laughs I also miss the guy who always shouted "yaoi! come get yaoi!" he was awesome!

I'm talking about bento boxes, daruma, miscellaneous charms from temples/shrines (good luck, good health, etc.), yukata (real yukata, not something cosplay-inspired), obi, zori, parasols, kanzashi (hair pins/ornaments), kokeshi, furin (windchimes) etc. Not everyone who attends Fanime has access to a Japantown - I think a considerable amount of people would be interested in purchasing these Japanese items. Smiley

Your best bet is using a deputy service to access all the Yahoo Japan and Rakuten goods.  Deputy services will charge you a small commission fee, but, as most Japanese will not do business (or ship) to anyone outside of Japan, it's really your best bet. I'm guessing that a lot of vendors who import will likely charge you just as much if not more, considering that they need to cover their costs as well.  There's also a chain of Japanese 'dollar stores' in the Bay Area(I'd mention the name but I'm not sure if it's ok to plug them here), so, if you're headed to Fanime, you might want to check them out.  They have a good selection of bento boxes and other items.  And, since most items are $1.50, they won't blow your con budget.

For kimono stuff, you really need to head to Japan.  There are some really good and affordable second hand kimono stores in Tokyo.  But, bear in mind, that 'authentic' kimono stuff can be pricey.  Even in a second hand(most of the stuff doesn't look used at all) shop, it is not unheard of to pay 20,000 - 30,000 yen for just the obi alone.

I hope this helps.

A better variety of snacks would be cool.  I mostly saw chocolate and strawberry Pocky, and while those are good, I can easily get them from my local grocery store at any given time.  It seemed WhizzyWig was the only dealer that had a better spread, and even their stuff was kinda limited compared to 2009 (or so I can recall right now).  They still have good stuff, though =).

Also, I second others' suggestions about having figures other than girls in mostly provocative outfits.  It would be nice to have male action figures as well so you don't get hit with a barrage of women with their clothes barely there.

Lastly, someone else mentioned this, but better phone charms would also be appreciated, especially if they don't cost $15-20.  I'd prefer to not blow a few meals worth of cash just to make my phone look awesome.

There are usually a ton of really cute and relatively inexpensive phone charms in the Artists Alley. Little polymer ones, fabric ones, etc. I'd rather buy from small handcrafters and get something cute and unique anyway :)
