    If you can, try to get the R4 box set. This includes both Barbarian and Destroyer in one set, but is less than $3 more than buying Barbarian on its own. Destroyer isn't a great film, but hey, it's only $3 more!

    Luis, you can't go wrong with the 5.1 on CONAN THE BARBARIAN -- it's a great remix! I have the R2 from Japan and I assume all the other regions sound as good. Well worth it!

    CONAN THE DESTROYER's Sp. Edition outside the US has two commentary tracks and a couple of nice bonus features. It's 5.1 as well but seems to be a "stereo enhancement" rather than a remix -- still it's better than the R1 release. Worth it as well!

    Not sure about Dragon, but the R4 Australian Timecop is in anamorphic widescreen with a Dolby 5.1 soundtrack, and the Australian dollar is approximately half the US. and there are plenty of good distributors to use. I usually use www.ezdvd.com.au they're pretty speedy and the customer service is really good as well.

    I'm in Melbourne, Australia (region 4) - i'm pretty certain Dragon has a good collector's edition out here, while i think Timecop and Twins are at least anamorphic widescreen. A good place to check for region 4 reviews is at www.michaeldvd.com.au
