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: so apparently Danball Senki has some Chogokin. http://img.amiami.jp/images/product/main/123/TOY-RBT-2363.jpg http://www.gundammodelkits.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/2571268cs.jpg

TheMazingerZ: blitz... you mean GOKIN. CHOGOKIN is the Mazingers Super Alloy.

blitzkriegomega: I thought chogokin was just any robot figure with die-cast in it, while Gokin is for non-mecha.

TheMazingerZ: nope, GOKIN is DIECAST. Chogokin is Mazinger based.

magengar: And "Chogokin" is also like a pet-name for some of Bandai's diecast toy lines, since Mazinger-Z seems to start those robot toy lines.
