    I'm trying to find the best Conan release. Conan with good ol' Arnold. Doesn't matter what region its from, as long as it has the best of everything. If anyone knows, please let me know.

    The Region 3 Korean version is a two-disc set of the SE w/5.1 DTS. Looks and sounds way better than the US release.

    There is a 2 DVD Conan Ultimate Edition in Japan released recently. I have it but I haven't had a chance to check it out.

    Conan is one of my favorite fictional characters. I think I'll check into both the Japanese and Korean DVDs.

    Can you guys, possibly give me links to the sites you saw them on??

    The Australian R4 Conan the Barbarian Ultimate has the DD & DTS 5.1 is fine and has all the extras.

    Just dont buy the UK R2 Ultimate edition as it is cut and also some frames have been substituted to avoid cuts. This is mainly around the horse trips in the film as under UK animal cruelty laws it is illegal to show these hence the compulsory cuts or frame replacements by Fox (the UK distributors).

    region 2 UK which is cut.. has a commentary track with actress sarah douglas .she talks about her memories working on conan the destroyer.

    region 2/4 of conan the destoryer from MGM has commentary with the director, co-stars and documentary on the conan comic book and the composer.

    The Region 4 Brazillian DVDs would have the same specs but would be NTSC if that is important to you.

    It's not even close:

    1. 5.1 DTS blows the R1 mono away.

    2. All the extras from the R1 are on a separate disc.

    3. PQ is excellent (as is the R1).

    4. Great packaging.

    Unfortunately, it is currently out of stock.
