7142 can be a challenge to track down at a reasonable price, but my recollection is that 7152 wasn't too expensive.
PS. Don't forget 7262....!
If you're a 'real' completist, you must have both the black and the blue box versions of the AT-AT, #4483.
I hope you have both of those @drdavewatford.
In fact, I hope and expect you to have 2 of each, 1 to open and 1 to keep sealed. :-)
You sometimes wonder whether they are simply counting on the OCD-ness of people like us with these or are actually catering for the new fans of the line who had missed the previous version!
The current one is a million times better...
It strikes me as a rather extreme collector who would want both. But I'm sure someone out there wants both. :)
As for collecting SW... well, even though I have more the mild OCDs about a lot of things, LEGO-related things included, I don't care about having every iteration of every ship. Like now that I have the new TIE Fighter, I couldn't care less about buying the old, inferior versions. My SW collection is still small as a whole, as I only have Death Star, TIE Defender, Ewok Attack, TIE Fighter and two Endor Imperial & Rebel battle packs. But really, there aren't that many sets I'd even want. Certainly no completionist urges!
That's exactly what I have been aiming to do. It's like I am creating my own museum and showing how the items have evolved over time.
Was there ever an option to get both boxes as one set? Reason I ask is that I see a few sellers having both boxes for sale together.
The color boxes came later with the advent of the Lego retail stores and other selling venues, my understanding is that the color boxes are much more rare than the B&W versions.
That being said, I am not aware of any value difference between the two, I've sold both versions of 10019 and never really seen any difference in the price.
