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.

blitzkriegomega: Hey guys, I have to know...with the SRC Solar Aquarion, can you use the Mugen Punch WITHOUT using the parts for One Shot Reversal Punch? I was wondering because I was thinking of getting Gold Aquarion and having it posed performing Solar Sword.

S_Gokin: magengar yea very funny man lol other than been made in japan bro

magengar: @ S_Gokin... I'm assuming those robots were probably designed by the same production company. Story-wise, I don't know if there's supposed to be some kind of universe-relation between them, as I've never watched those robot shows.

S_Gokin: @ magengar i didnt watch them either its just the kinda look the same with that helmet design and most of collectors display them together so i thought they are pals, beside been made in japan

magengar: Soooooo... Facebook has blocked me for 24 hours because of some pic I posted yesterday. I've seen much worse things, even extreme pages, on FB, and the FB moderators turn a blind eye. They're Azzhats.

magengar: I think they blocked me mostly because I attacked Sony on their page and timeline throughout the day, about their "Interview" movie controversy.

S_Gokin: @ magengar you couldn't resist trolling them huh ?
Dec 20, 2014 12:08:04 GMT -5
magengar: I'll troll them Anytime day or night.

TheMazingerZ: At least it is only for 24hrs. HLPro won't allow me to even "Like", or much less, comment on their posts anymore.

magengar: My Facebook blockage was lifted as of 2am this morning. BTBAU!
