Personally, I'm not worried about the radiation. I'm not sure if I've heard of any Gokin stores around Fukushima. Mostly keep my orders from HLJ, RTen, Hobby Search and Amiami. Those stores are located in the southern portions of Japan in or near Tokyo and Shizouka. YJA I'm sure gives you a location.
I think US customs is on top of the situation. HK is really cracking down on Japanese imports apparently. Play-Asia and Toy-wave are carefully screeing.
When in doubt, use your best judgement. If you're one who's concerned about radiation, perhaps waiting until the situation subsides is a better option.
Hi guys, haven't read the whole thread but on my own experience, I received two parcels (one from hlj and one from anime-export) at work at then beginning of April and my colleagues were teasing me with the radiation, so we got a geiger counter (radiation meter) and checked. Parcels and robot boxes themselves show normal results (measured in micro-Sieverts). Pics attached.

magengar: Just started working two part-time jobs... averaging 10-hour workdays 5 and 6 days per week, and only one full day off which I will spend relaxing at home sleeping in. I can't even hold a conversation right now. And I'm moving this weekend.

TheMazingerZ: Ouch! Working 50 to 60 hours a week is no fun at all!!! That's not "two part-time" jobs! That's a "time and a half" job!
Mar 24, 2015 23:07:13 GMT -5
magengar: I know. And I'm feeling exhausted already. But I gotta do what I gotta do. And even though both jobs pay bi-weekly I'm still excited with having two paydays on the same week.

S_Gokin: a question guys whats the accurate color for z Mazinger limbs ? black or blue ?
Apr 6, 2015 12:15:06 GMT -5
TaurusOxford: If the manga covers are a legit source, black.
Apr 7, 2015 2:54:08 GMT -5
S_Gokin: manga covers are legit yes, thanks TaurusOxford i figured they are black but i want to be sure, all the photos i found for it wasn't that clear
Apr 7, 2015 12:34:51 GMT -5
TheMazingerZ: Z Mazinger limbs are supposed to be black, just like the original Manga Mazinger Z limbs. Yes, sometimes they are shown as blue, but that's just like when they show Mazinger Z's fist as white, and we all know that's not their real color.

S_Gokin: @tmz thanks for the info man, i thought they run out of ink when they make the fist white
