A standard edition minus the books and CDs is already confirmed. No date though.
Googling around and I'm seeing some posts on another forum about that... but have they said that officially anywhere?

It certainly seems the obvious thing to do, but something official would be nice given the struggles this movie's had.

Someone on twitter mentioned to me this set won't ship to American from the Second Sight website. Is that true?

Yes, their site is only shipping it to UK addresses.

Do we understand why Amazon UK is not shipping selected items to USA? I could understand why they had stopped shipping to USA altogether, but I do not understand how they pick and choose what not to ship. In some cases they select individual items not to ship. (e.g. the Edgar Allan Poe Adaptations Limited Edition issued by MoC, even though they ship other MoC titles to USA). Is there a rationale?

I think they allow items to ship to the USA when they are closer to release date, though this doesn't apply to all items. The latest Indicator announcements ship to the USA, for example, while the Takeshi Kitano box released the same day does not, nor does Czechmate from Second Run. Zavvi doesn't seem to have this problem, so I'm doing most of my shopping there nowadays.

Yes, they do. Asylum and The House That Dripped Blood are now out in standard blus, minus only the boxes, posters and booklets.

Dawn of the Dead is now available to pre-order direct from Second Sight or Zavvi.

Yeah, Base is a lot cheaper because they deduct VAT, charge much less for shipping, and don't add tax.

I'm curious how many people might be going for the UHD vs. the BD editions

I'm going to pre-order from Diabolik, even if it costs a little bit more than Base/Zavvi, so I can avoid the risk of cancellation in the case of a sellout (and Diabolik always has excellent packing/customer service).

How likely is this to occur, the risk of cancellation?

I’m curious about cancellation too. Base is the only economically feasible option for me, so I guess I’m just SOL if they can’t come through.

Pre-orders are "guaranteed" to be filled per Second Sight's own Twitter account. I don't remember if they've said how limited the set is, but it looks like they are going to produce at least enough to fill all the pre-orders.
