! A new color for the Maisto 787?! ...I have yet to see one at all!

As for SB10 Lufthansa...I have 5, it says. 1 MOC, 3 loose and another is in a set...makes me wonder which set that is?

Well, I'm here and so is my Matchbox list. Here are the SB10 Boeing 747 releases as I have seen them. (they don't call it a -200, just 747). Any others?
BOAC
Qantas
Virgin Atlantic
Cathay Pacific
Aer Lingus
Brit. Caledonian
BA (early)
Air Force One
Pan Am
Lufthansa
KLM
SAA (maybe)
Olympic
JAL

It looks as though the Lufthansa 747-400 and the Alaska 737 (two variants, retro and modern) were the last of the realistic Sky-Busters airliners, 2009.

As for the earlier metal 747 variants, SAA is confirmed and you can add All-Nippon to the list. I found a database with photos!

Well, no joy in confirming bad news. The whole "airplane" toy market is down but the "collectibles" market has never been stronger!
I think the Disney Airplanes releases have sucked the impetus from other areas.
Thanks for posting!
