There are no Waite decks - in any language - on the AG Muller tarotworld site. I have googled and googled and cannot find anything. The only pictures that come up in searches are those that were posted in the forum, in this thread, of the German editions.

It's very odd how all reference to it on the site have vanished. The German edition doesn't show up anymore on German amazon.

I've found the German editions easily on the Koenigsfurt Urania website:
http://www.koenigsfurt-urania.com/sh...-ae-waite.html
http://www.koenigsfurt-urania.com/sh...te-pocket.html

And, I also think that this "Deluxe" format is an English edition. My German is a little creaky, but I think what is being said here is that this is the English edition.
http://www.koenigsfurt-urania.com/sh...uxeformat.html

Note that these German sites actually point to Spanish, French and English editions of the deck as being able to be ordered in the International shop... although then, yes, the editions are no longer present. I'm thinking that nothing nefarious is going on... I think this is just about a production delay...

Remaining hopeful, at any rate!

Google Chrome on mobile gave me the option to translate the page to English, and it said

They are available in 3 different sizes: Deluxe (English edition), Standard and Pocket (both German editions).
So I guess you're right. It states that the release date is on August 14 2017 tho, and it can only be reserved as of now. Maybe it will hold until then.

I was on the AG Muller site, not Urania-Konigsfurt. That explains it. Nothing nefarious then! But it's odd that these didn't come up in searches...

The English version of the Premium edition was definitely available for sale from Tarotworld a few weeks ago; I did not buy one because there was no PayPal option. The decks have been clearly yanked from sale. Production delays don't explain why the standard edition RWS with the Rosicrucian Cross backs are also not available.

Yep, I'm not optimistic, but I'm willing to be pleasantly surprised if the decks re- appear.

It also says available from 14.08.2017.

It says "Discover loved tarot and oracle decks in many languages (English, French, Spanish) in out international shop." And also that the deluxe edition is English. But I found it in a German bookstore - the deluxe, allegedly - and the box, at least, is shown in German only.

But if you follow the links to their international shop - nothing under Waite. If you search their site - ditto.

Here's a Giant in English - allegedly....

It does all look a bit like the heavy hand of the copyright thing strikes again

Hey ETA - weird.

I do not know German, but I do know what buttons to push on Amazon. Ordered that Giant edition in English.

And (stupid me) I got an instant response (auf Deutsch !) from "Felicia", saying they are closed for the weekend and will respond on Monday. DUH me !
