It was recently confirmed that Fox would take over home video distribution rights for MGM and these listings are the first signs of the Ultimate Editions making their way to Region 1 DVD. Currently there is no listing for individual releases or a complete collection, while individual disc specs are to be confirmed (though in terms of extras should match the recent R2 editions).

I've got a full James Bond collection, including a very nice metal box to keep all the DVDs in, and it cost way less $359.92. Wouldn't it be nicer if that was available again (or for the first time, if it wasn't available in the US at that time)?

Well, in the UK there's a huge silver briefcase containing the Bond Ultimate Editions. Don't think the US will get the collectable briefcase.
