As far as I'm concerned, conventions and merchandise go hand in hand like peanut butter and jelly; you simply can't have one without the other.
Much to my pleasure and relief, TGS has a decent little merchandise corner with lots of exclusive goods on sale specifically for the event. While it's nowhere near as massive as a dealer's room in something like Anime Expo, it's certainly worth a walk through. I ended up buying a bevy of exclusive Square Enix music CDs, but there was plenty more to look at. In particular, SE's figure display was a thing of beauty.
Other shops also had some cool setups and I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to grab a Zone of the Enders: Anubis iPhone case. Those things are sexy as all hell.
