What was the reason that Synapse did a restoration on an older transfer that was supposedly used for a past dvd release while Arrow had different elements to work with? basically I don't know any of the story regarding either restorations any help would be great.

Unfortunately the best sources aren't always available to each distributor, either because of money, industry standing, time of release or deals made.

Arrow were fortunate enough to get access to the negatives exclusively.

Basically chocolat Synapse weren't given access to the original camera negative by the oweners of the materials when they started their own restoration, wereas Arrow a year or two later was able to persuade the owners to give them access. We don't know why, if you're cynical you could say that Arrow coughed up more dough to get access, if you're optimistic you could say that Phenomena doing a good job with their release persuaded the owners that they could trust another boutique label with these precious materials.

Thanks, guys. I was gifted a 4k tv and 4k blu ray player (a samsung UBD-M7500) on Christmas, my first time ever having a flat screen and a bd player so I'm trying to do more research with all these editions now. I'm wanting the Arrow wide release that comes out later this month but it seems to be region B locked

Yes it will most definitely be region B just like the LE.

I got my standard edition in the mail earlier this evening.

The 4K master of the 116 minute cut looks great, but i'm happy enough with the 2K remasters of the 110 minute cut and the Creepers cut on my Synapse steelbook.

Had I not coughed up dough for the Synapse steelbook, I would've went for the Arrow LE, but I felt like it was pretty redundant after having bought the Synapse steelbook. The single disc Arrow release is perfect enough for me.

I had the Synapse steel, but there was nothing redundant about me upgrading to the Arrow Limited Edition.
