With my current exchange rate, that comes out to almost $200Cdn.
Much as I'd love to see the extended version and certainly that fan edit version on Blu, that's a bit much considering the other 2 new eds I've already ordered.
Mind, Koch Ultimate eds are not known for exactly flying off the shelves so, I've got some time to decide I think.

Odds are the extended versions will be the same ones that are already out there. So if you already have those on blu ray - I don't really see the reason to get this - unless its a different transfer or it has extra special artwork and packaging.

I have the studio produced extended version on the dvd that came with the dvd Steel. I'm not aware of a blu ed of it though.
With that in mind, a financial reality check makes me think that I can live without the Koch ed. :)

@C.C. 95 @Grendel Another one of those ext. cuts is SpiceDiver fan edit. IMO never been on blu-ray before. Would get this release in the blink but once again, no eng subs...

Edit, but it's SD.
And if there was ever a movie that needs its subtitles - it's DUNE!
The info dump speech in the first 10 minutes. :rofl:
*if you are wise in the ways of the interwebs - the Spicediver DUNE Fanedit can be found out there.....

Koch's website doesn't ship to the US
DiabolikDVD will probably have it (At some point)....They carried the Koch 7 disc ultimate edition of COLOR OUT OF SPACE.

*I sent them an email about it - hopefully they will respond and i can get confirmation whether they will (or won't) be carrying it.
