I would just like to see more variety.  It seems like I saw the same figures, t-shirts, poster etc. everywhere I went last year.  There where some booths that had different stuff, but probably 5 or 6 booths that were just clones of each other.
This.

I'm tried of seeing the same merch over and over. I'm also tired of mostly seeing merch for the most popular anime out there. I want variety! I want things that aren't as well known/liked!

I've said this before, but I also like more practical items rather than figurines and such... And I would love to see more music/a better selection of music. Just the most popular artists, anime soundtracks, and various viskei/whatever that has evoled into is not nearly enough! A lot of that stuff is really marked up anyway, but sometimes you can get really good stuff for just around or under the going rate (Amano Tsukiko's Tenryu album for ~$35? I couldn't get it for that online once I factored in shipping! I just ordered ZERO, and it cost me over $40, so that's a pretty good deal, and a hint to any sellers, I still don't have A MOON CHILD IN THE SKY... ;D I'll be on the lookout), and that's what I'm looking for.

I also want more booths with really cutesy stuff. Wizzywig has a monopoly on that, I'd say, and if there was another booth like it, then I probably wouldn't have to spend as much money to get my cute stuff fix, and would have a better selection. I know, Sanrio stuff is expensive, but still...


Also, more/better loli clothes, preferably brand, even if I won't be able to afford it, please. <3

Shugo Chara merchandise.  Also, Japanese language manga, like they used to carry a few years ago.  I can get English language manga at Barnes and Noble for cying out loud.

I would love to see more figurines other than scantily clad pedo-bait schoolgirls. More magical girl figures, and cute boys! Also, more variety in figurines. Often times, I will buy it if it looks cool and beautiful, regardless if whether I know of the series or not.

Kuroshitsuji merchandise!

Costumes/cosplay and costume accessories.

AFFORDABLE lolita garments.

Here's what I'm hoping to find at Fanime this year:

Dakimakura
Japanese anime magazines like CompAce and Comptiq, possibly some jp Newtypes since they rock (don't care if they are older or outdated I'll still buy the heck out of 'em.)
Lots of Figma and Revoltech
GOOD SMILE COMPANY GOODS!!!! (LOVE Good Smile, and they'll most likely have GSC goods anyways) and if you didn't know, GSC specializes in Nendoroids, Figma, and the like...
Possibly some Japanese Import Games? *cough*Cross of Venus sp pack*cough*
Some character song CD's
Mouse Pads!  XD
Art Books
and of course, POSTERS!

I'm going to be looking for some more practical and unique items this year. I've got a bad habit of buying loads of figures and nothing else...LOL. *cough*toyslogicIloveyou*cough. Practical Items include things like Collectibles such as character goods, things like character song cd's, dakimakura, sheets, mouse pads, art books, maybe some replicas...Man! I can't wait to hit that dealer's hall!!!!!

I've been going to Fanime since 06, and I have to say, almost all of the money I've spent at the con has been at either the swap meet or the arcade.

Seriously, the dealers room has always been the low point of Fanime for me. I usually don't find anything of interest and on the rare occasion I do find something it's outrageously expensive. I know Naruto headbands sell, but does every single dealer have to sell almost exclusively headbands and figurines and trinkets? I rarely ever see any artbooks (of interest) or rare video games/video game accessories. Most of the stuff I find in the dealers room is stuff you can quite frankly find anywhere online, and usually for a lot less than what they're charging.

The only suggestion I can really offer is to just make better choices on what dealers show up. I'd personally love to have some classic import game booth selling rare PC Engine/Mega Drive/Famicom games.

Oh, and, something else you may want to tell the dealers to bring; arcade sticks. SF4 and BlazBlue are both in high demand and most people getting those games are going to want sticks to play them on.

I would like more affordable Lolita gear.

I want more Momoi/Under 17 merchandise, other then that 2003 concert DVD, back when Momoi Halko was in the band Under 17.

I want more Ayanami Rei merchandise.
