The box set's are only worth it IMO if you want the vinyl.  The box along with it's "trinkets" will probably be put away pretty soon after purchase and is really just a waste of money.  We all know the bonus tracks (which are really just album rejects) will appear on YT or somewhere pretty soon anyway so I will be doing what I always do and buy the deluxe CD.

I really like the bonus tracks from Privateering, even if they are rejects!    ;)

I like them very much, too. And I get the feeling these ones will be even better, as will the new album be.
Love over gold, mind over matter

I received an answer and apology from UDiscover regarding box set:
Thay still say its limited until stock, but not what that stock might be in numbers. Who knows... I am also going for deluxe cd.

Dear Peter,
We wanted to inform you that initially this was advertised as a uDiscover exclusive limited to 300 units only. This was in fact only a UK exclusive for uDiscover and so some of you may have seen the box set available from other online outlets outside of the UK. Also, due to unprecedented demand, we have been informed that the initial planned run has been increased in quantity to allow more fans to get hold of a set. It still remains limited and only available while stocks last.
We would like take this opportunity to sincerely apologise for this miscommunication and any inconvenience this may have caused you. Should you now wish to cancel your order, please let us know by replying to this email  and quoting your order number.
Cheers Peter
