That's a lot of Dune...
Gotta see what of this I already have in previous editions.

Edit: Right, I thought I've seen this already, it's all been released in 2022, the listed as new extras on disc 3 are NOT new. In fact it's missing a 7th disc, a CD Soundtrack from the Koch Ultimate edition.
This is just a re-release under Plaion name, same art-book and comic book too.

True, but given that the Koch Ultimate is long OOP and regularly sells for well north of US$250, this is a great opportunity for those who missed out to get essentially the same content for a whole lot less, sans CD and acrylic packaging.

US$86 shipped from JPC.de

How does JPC.de package their products? I always worry about buying from other countries because I've received a lot of damaged items when importing.

I've not had problems, but I typically buy multiple titles per order to defray shipping costs, and those items typically come boxed. Single items will likely come in an ark-style cardboard mailer (see below).

The one data point where it did make a noticeable difference compared to Amazon international or FNAC is that JPC's gift packaging is worth it for 2,51 euros IMO. With Amazon and FNAC, the gift packaging is merely a bag without padding that protects against scuffs and scrapes, but nothing beyond that. JPC's gift packaging, on the other hand is a corrogated cardboard mailer that offers some level of padding and protection.

I ordered it with my 3D steelbook of Avatar Way of Water:
