Will probably be the same 4k steel that was released in the US last year (and I think never came up here on the forum); was it a Target exclusive...?

True, but not exaclty the same because of the terrible logos on the front. Would much prefer the US one, have been hunting it on ebay, but am curious now to know how this one here will look.
Can anyone share inside on the finish of these two previous steelbooks?

UK steelbook it was just Blu-ray logo and Universal logo

The Jcard had the age ratings not the steelbook itself

UK steelbook from 2012

USA Target 4K SteelBook

when they say a new 4K disc; do they mean new artwork or a new scan?

I think they mean "new 4K UHD and Blu-ray disc with never-before-seen content".
