Not sure if many of you have heard, but due to a recent bombing via mail from Yemen, Homeland security is regulating stuff a lot more closely now. A very notable point is that they will no longer accept foreign ink cartridges that weigh over 1 pound (453 grams). Now, I'm not sure whether Japan misinterpreted that or what, but for whatever reason, they are shutting down all international shipments as of (Today) 11-17 that weigh over a pound. From what little research I did on this, it seems most retail services operating out of Japan are unaffected. Hobby Link Japan (hlj), Shopping Mall Japan, and J-List have all express that they're unaffected by the new restrictions. I haven't gotten confirmation on sites such as Hobby Search, AmiAmi, YesAsia, PlayAsia, HimeyaShop, and other such online stores, but I imagine that they're fine. eBay sellers are gonna be hosed like no other though.
