Cobra [Collector's Edition] [Blu-ray] SHOUT Factory!

Amazon [amazon.com] NLA

Walmart [walmart.com] availability varies by location

This release is different and superior from the Warner one that's $10
From Blu-ray.com review [blu-ray.com]

Scream Factory brings Cobra to Blu-ray for the second time, nearly eight years after the Warner Bros. debut. Scream advertises this as a new 2K scan of an archival interpositive created at Warner Bros. Motion Picture Imaging on the Lasergraphics Director scanner. Fotokem's Steve Peer presided over color timing while Duplitech conducted the restoration. Cobra appears in its original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1 on this MPEG-4 AVC-encoded BD-50. The encode and compression is an upgrade over Warner's BD-25, which uses the VC-1 encode. The Warner boasts a mean video bitrate of 19941 kbps while the Scream sports an average of nearly twice that (35000 kbps). I own the Warner and have interleaved a graphical comparison between the two editions (Screenshot #s 23-30; Warner on top). The Warner has overblown white while Scream has added red tint (e.g.., see the difference in facial complexion between captures 29 & 30)

That means Amazon had only a few in stock and didn't want to take a loss on backorders.

Anybody know if it's Instawatch? I've had this on my Vudu wishlist for a long time.

For anyone else wondering, this Collector's Edition is not Instawatch enabled. It also did not come with the sleeve that this picture suggests it should, but did say "Collector's Edition" on the front.

There's a "regular" bluray for $3 less that may or may not be Instawatch.
