I hope this boxset is available to order on Gruv’s site.
The first set is, so I can't imagine that the second set won't be. It's not up yet though, even though To Kill a Mockingbird 4K can be pre-ordered already.
Today, the "Universal Classic Monsters: Icons of Horror Collection Volume 2" and "To Kill a Mockingbrid" can be preordered on Gruv's site. There are two 4K releases of "Mockingbird" with the lower price one just having the 4K disc, Blu-ray and Digital Code. The 60th Anniversary LE has a 44 page booklet along with some lobby cards and stuff.

For those ordering on Gruv's site, don't forget to use the 20% off coupon SIGNUP20.
