10188 differences

I just sold my first post retirement Deathstar. In the conversation I had with the buyer, I discovered that there have been some changes over the years that I was unaware of.

1. In 2010, five of the minifigs were slightly changed.
    - The Han Solo heads changed. Old version had solid black eyes and the newer version has white pupils
    - Same change on the head of Obi-wan.
    - The DS troopers had LBG helmets which was changed to black.

2. Did the box ever change? The official box photos show the front with an age of 12+. Current copies have 14+ on them.

Another other changes other the years?

    The alternate figs parts are interesting. BL lists quite a few alternate parts, but nothing about the figs.

    If you go here. it will show you all of the differences.  This site has located all of the differences in the Star Wars sets as far as minifigures go.

    Post retirement DS?  S@H says they are currently making that incorrect information?

    At the time of the original post. It was assumed the set was retired.

    I think another change is that they modularized the instructions and parts too.
