No, but in all seriousness... I'm not skeptical that they plan to release a standard package. I sure hope it has all 3 cuts in 4K, and given the time/effort they've spent on this, it seems like a fair bet. But I think them confirming anything in detail could potentially hurt sales of the existing set (which is not sold out, mind you...) so I could see why they'd be hesitant to say "Oh yes, a cheaper set with 100% of what you want is on the way" when they're still trying to sell current stock.

I think the only thing potentially hurting sales is whatever is causing all these retailers to cancel or limit orders.

I emailed Second Sight and they confirmed all 3 cuts. So I hope you can all believe some random DVDTalk poster.

I don't see the question in that screencap, DEX!
What if you're lying to us and spreading misinformation, DEX?!
HOW DO WE KNOW YOU'RE NOT A SECRET AGENT FROM BLU-RAY DOT COM, DEX?!?!?!?!

Eh. As long as my Amazon UK order stays intact. A friend of mine already got his screener copy from Second Sight, so the reviews should be coming in by Halloween.

That review cements my decision to wait for a standard release. Hopefully, they'll have a have theatrical-only release. The other cuts do not interest me nor does the soundtrack. Packaging is nice for the set, though.

Keep an eye out. Apparently some people are getting shipping notices from Diabolik

Well, I bought from two different websites, so I'll just eBay my extra copy. Not worth risking cancelling on one at this point.

They posted last week on Facebook that they were expecting the discs to arrive this week. In a comment, they also said that they ordered anticipating damages so there should be some extras that will be available. If anyone is still interested, I'd keep a close eye on their website - or Facebook. That's how I wound up with an Adamson set a few months back.

I got mine in the mail a few days ago and just got around to opening it. Its a nicely done set and the book is nice I'm probably gonna watch the Cannes cut only but look forward to seeing the supplements too. The box is an odd shape so it wont fit on my shelf so not sure where to put it

Just got a charge on my card from Zavvi for this. No shipping notice yet, though.

Stil no notice from Diabolik or Zavvi. Guess I’m not getting this on the 16th.

I reckon I’ll have one of these to sell.
