On September 26th, I received a PM from Vanigan with interest in my Dropzone Commander PHR starter box. He wanted to trade some of his X-Wing Imperial ships and all associated cards/tokens. We struck an arrangement and I sent my package on Sept. 30th (tracking # in the PM history). He confirmed receiving my package and promised to ship his package soon. However, it has been a month and a half, he has not sent his package and has stopped responding to messages. Read receipts are confirmed, he's reading the messages and not responding.

I have an entire Imperial lot, missing only the latest waves, that I'd like to trade some of for your PHR starter. Let me know if you're interested and in what ships. I have all the tokens and cards accounted for and in good condition.

I'd love to get some imperials! I've mostly been collecting just rebels. What would you suggest for starting imps? (The only imps i have currently are from the core set). I was thinking an Interceptor, Aces and maybe a Phantom?
Let me know if you want pics of my PHR.

How about 3 fighters for the PHR box? This way it matches up roughly evenly retail to retail. I don't need pictures of the PHR unless you have them in really wacky poses or did bad work assembling them. Which version of the walkers did you create or did you not glue the weapon arms in place?
Turns out I had traded away more than I thought previously, but I can account for all the cards and tokens for these.
8 TIE Fighters

I would be interested in 2x Tie Fighters, 1x Phantom and 1x Bomber. I'd be willing to PayPal the difference. Can those Tie Fighters be from the blisters? (Im told i need Howlrunner)?
So lets look at msrp prices from a reputable online store, say http://www.miniaturemarket.com, it looks like the PHR Starter clocks in at $55.00. Likewise, if we do the same for the X-Wing stuff, they each clock in at $15.00 a piece.
So unless im forgetting something, we'd each pay our own shipping. According to our BT ratings, i would ship first and PayPal you an additional $5. Does this look good to you?
Let me know, thanks!

Forgot to mention. I did not glue the PHR walker's weapon arms. They are free to swap out currently.

Sorry about that, my math was terrible. 4 fighters with the difference coming back is fine.
That trade sounds good to me. I'll get everything packed up.
Just in case it matters to you, things like the Target Lock tokens will be matched pairs, but not the letters that came with actual packages.
You can send it to:

Just touching base. Did you recieve my package? Did you send yours? If so, does it have tracking?
Vanigan wrote: Sent: Wed Oct 07, 2015 9:08 pm
Got your package, mine will be on its way soon. I'll reply with tracking as soon as it's done.

I can provide card lists for each of those ships if that would help you.

Sorry, crunch time hit us here at Activision, so I wasn't able to go anywhere this week.
I'll toss in an extra TIE fighter with some cards from the starter to ease the delay. I have the stuff separated and accounted for, but haven't been able to pack and ship it.

It has now been two weeks since our last communication and a month since I sent my package. What is going on!?!

I reviewed his BT references a second time and didn't see any bad reviews. I only hesitate to file a police report on him because of this history. Basic Google, Facebook and LinkedIn searches found nothing conclusive on Anthony Pham in Whittier, CA. But it was shared through PM that he works at Activision.
If the moderators would please review this BTR and offer options for my next steps, it would be greatly appreciated.
