So what might your guess be as to what is on the DVD?
DVD will have the Film+Extras

StudioCanal have done a few Blu-ray collector editions before that included Film on DVD

This why listings on Amazon/Zavvi/HMV and other UK retailers for the collector edition list the following
UHD & Blu Ray & DVD Disc

The standard Blu-ray amaray is 1 disc
Blu-ray

The standard DVD amaray is 1 disc
DVD

Steelbook is 2 discs
UHD & Blu-ray

Strange seeing a 4K disc and a DVD of the film in the same collection when it already includes a Blu-ray as well.

Not unusual with collector editions from StudioCanal they have included DVD before in some Blu-ray and 4K UHD collector edition releases
Ladykillers 4K UHD collector edition included UHD/Blu-ray/DVD/CD soundtrack
There are other releases they did the same with Blu-ray collector editions these was Blu-ray and DVD with some also including CD soundtrack

The Blu-ray amaray release on it's own is 1 Disc
The DVD amaray release on it's own is 1 Disc

As the above 1 disc standard editions for both Blu-ray and DVD these have film+ extras on the disc
The image in the mock up of the collector edition showing a second Blu-ray disc is an error
It's meant to show DVD and also why has artwork TBC

Anyone got any ideas whether this would be housed in an amaray (so making it easy to swap with a steelbook) or a booklet thing (like in the escape from new york collectors edition)?

As I previously mentioned it will as usual discs will be in digipack inside a slipbox

This is how Studiocanal package their collector editions

The poster and artcards are housed loose inside the digipack
Booklet will be either also inside the digipack or beside the digipack inside the slipbox

A steelbook will fit but will likely be loose it will depend on how wide the slipbox is to fit the digipack and booklet

Basic Instinct 4K collector edition was 3 discs
This unboxing video below will give you an idea on the size of the slipbox

Not my video

Canceling my Amazon.co.uk order right now! Just received my copy of The Thing 4K Collector's Edition and it looks like someone dropped a cinderblock on it! Even opted for paying for DHL shipping it hope that it would survive UK to USA shipping, no such luck! Amazon only used a paper envelope to ship it in.
