I ordered it but has not yet shipped. The price has dropped to $28.26 though.

Just ordered one myself. I'll be curious to find out of it's the cardboard-case version or the keep-case version (really hoping for the latter).

I'd put my money on option C: neither.

Managed to pick up the keep-case Blu version here in the UK for £12. Couldn't believe my luck.

Three years later and I hope we get a Tati situation with CE back in print in a box with other WKW films. December could be light but we usually average a boxset every announcement or so.

...no? The last monthly announcements to include a box was for July, and there's already the biggest release ever in December. I definitely am under the belief it'll happen due to the Chungking/Playtime situation but there's no reason to assume they'd put a relatively high profile release in the dog days of December.
