! 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?
Virgin Atlantic
Cathay Pacific
Aer Lingus
Brit. Caledonian
BA (early)
Air Force One
Pan Am
SAA (maybe)

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!
