    There is a good special edition of Conan The Destroyer (which I don't like) available in R2... it's likely that it will eventually find its way to R1 as well. The R2 and R4 editions of Conan The Barbarian have a new 5.1 track, though some are reporting that the music sounds "incomplete" in at least one part.

    To the best of my knowledge there are no plans for another CONAN THE BARBARIAN DVD in Region One. However the current special edition disc has a beautiful transfer and some interesting added footage. It does lack a 5.1 track, but the film was originally recorded in mono; I always thought this was one film that could benefit from a multi channel mix but I'm not bothered by the lack of one on the DVD since it didn't have one in the theater.
    I would imagine that there will eventually be a Region One special edition for CONAN THE DESTROYER but it hasn't been announced yet. The current barebones edition has a poor transfer and isn't really worth the money(IMHO).

    Definately, pick up the first one. I'm still waiting on an uncut version of Destroyer. A group of us petitioned for it, but it never really got anywhere.

    I know that they are filming or begining to film a new Conan movie. You may want to hold off to see what happens with that.

    Arnold is going to play conan again. John Milus is writing the script and will direct the film.
    there is a customer service number for universal at 972-293-5903. Its located in Texas. Its a answering machine.. leave your message and they will call you back. Perhaps if alot of of people call the number and they get alot of resquest for it.. they might reconsider and do a special edition.
    I did an interview with Greg Carson. he was the dvd producer for the MGM region 2-4 conan the destroyer se. www.angelfire.com/ca4/sarahdouglas
    I sent universal a fax back in Jan. they know that people want it.. that is how far I have gotten.
    If anyone else has any ideas.. please say so.

    I have not seen Red Sonja in a while but I am pretty certain that Arnold does NOT play Conan in the movie but some other character. A prince I think...

    Anyone have more details?

    Red Sonja was available in R2 exclusively as part of an Arnold Schwarzenegger boxset (Total Recall, Red Heat, Raw Deal and Red Sonja). Pretty reasonable transfer, given the film's vintage.

    I have this boxset - very cheap in HMV Sale.

    The only problem is , I dont have a multi region player.
    Those other region version's look pretty cool.
