Thousands of attendees packed the halls of the Washington State Convention Center for the annual Sakura-Con anime convention this past Easter weekend. Some came to check out the upcoming English translated productions of hit anime shows like "Attack on Titan" or "Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic." Others wanted to show off the hard work they did on their anime or video game costumes as they posed for photos around the halls of Sakura-Con or during the convention's costume contest. Other simply enjoyed spending time at Sakura-Con's anime ambiance and with fellow like-minded anime fans.

Lie most good anime conventions, Sakura-Con hosted an exhibition hall where attendees could purchase or at least browse the latest anime merchandise such as the current and upcoming line of figurines from the Good Smile Company. From Nendoroids to scale figurines, Good Smile Company often releases these figurines of popular anime and video game characters of high quality and detail. Attendees use this opportunity at Sakura-Con to buy some available figurines directly from the Good Smile Company booth or get a direct look at upcoming figurines scheduled for release later in the year. Whether purchased from Good Smile Company or not, anime figurines tend to complement most anime collections as something nice to look at when there's no anime to watch.

What are your favorite Good Smile Company figurines that you are looking forward to this year?
