Not a Limited Edition CREEPSHOW (Second Sight) but as it's now OOP the price is a ltd. ed. price.
For the serious fan there's this on the bay . . . signed by Tom Atkins and Adrienne Barbeau (looks like a replacement case as the original was blue):-

For CREEPSHOW 2 the 88 Films release with slipcover should not be completely forgotten:-

So are these both going to be hard box style releases?
One will be a Arrow Store exclusive and the other will be trade wide

Arrow might include something extra for the store exclusive but we don't have the details yet

What type of packaging that will be used is not known yet or what the disc contents will be and any other items that will be included

So this is just a reprint of the U.S. 2016 release......?

Yes but arrow store exclusive is different colour slip
Video is of the red slip edition

Arrow did not have the UK distribution rights back in 2016
88 films had the UK rights in 2016 and done a release themselves on Blu-ray

Arrow got the UK dristribution rights recently that's why they can now release their edition in the UK

will it be region free?
It wont be known for sure until someone tests the disc
It might be Region B

USA release was Region A Locked

But with Arrow now having distribution rights in UK also it's possible could now be Region Free for UK release
The only way to know for sure is when released and disc is tested
