The LEGEND Ultimate Edition Blu-ray should be available at most stores that sell Blu-ray discs. Amazon (http://www.amazon.com) has it for sure.
Other Regions : The versions of the LEGEND DVD for other regions are not the same as the Ultimate Edition. Most other regions have the European cut of LEGEND on them. Try checking the localized version of Amazon or your favorite website for DVDs to find the specific Region DVD of LEGEND that you need.
The European version and Television version of LEGEND are harder to find although I have two potential sources below.
The Director's Cut of LEGEND is not available on video.
(LEGEND Videotape - European Version Letterboxed)
According to Andrew King (email@example.com)
"I bought the second (apparently, side 2 CAV version) French PAL Laserdisc at Virgin Records on the Champs Elyssies, Paris. I was able to use my older PAL UK full screen dolby surround Laserdisc to create a SVHS HiFi letterbox english language dolby surround copy. I have a professional standards converter, but am awaiting a repair of my HiFi NTSC/PAL/SECAM VHS machine. So I can at present do only a mono NTSC dub, but expect my HiFi machine to be fixed sometime soon!
So is there any point in offering HiFi eng. lang. letterbox dubs of this to readers of your page, or will everyone (including myself) be waiting for the DVD? I would charge £15 which is for NTSC or PAL, shipping and tape conforming costs.
Anyone interested can email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org"
(LEGEND Videotape - Television Version)
John Pace (HopRom17@aol.com) has a copy of the Television version of LEGEND which is the American version of LEGEND with the following additions :
John is willing to make VCR-to-VCR copies of the TV version for $12.00, which includes the cost of a videotape and postage.
Please note that there are commercials during the film and John will not be editing these out.
Send John an e-mail at HopRom17@aol.com for information on where to mail a check.
Hard copies of both scripts can be found at Hollywood Book and Poster (http://www.hollywoodbookandposter.com)

Academy Award Folder for LEGEND's Special Effects Nomination
PO Box 1012
Muskegon, MI 49443
"They prefer it if you call for availability of any items this old. The catalog is $3.00, but you can call them if you wish, they take credit cards."
According to (CCline9122@aol.com), "There was a limited number of Academy Award folders made for the movie calling for the nomination of best make-up effects. There were two articles, one was a two sided cast sheet.
One side had the American one-sheet art for the movie, the other side had the complete cast listing. The second article was a gate-fold folder that had a photo of Darkness (the photo from the American soundtrack cover) and a quote that stated "For your consideration."
Inside were several pictures of the characters and a few shots of the make-up process for Tim Curry, other shots included, Meg Mucklebones, Screwball, Lily in her gown, and Blix, as well as a short synopse of the film's complicated make-up work and mention of bot Rob Bottin and Peter-Robb King.
I purchased this folder for $15.00 from Cinema City and last I heard they still had a few left."
Dr. Z CINEMA POSTERS has a Legend poster listed at http://home.blarg.net/~dr_z/Movie/Posters/Reproductions/Legend_Rep.html.

Subject: legend models
There is another model on the market and I found it quite by accident. It's a 'Meg Mucklebones' model kit. Its made from resin materials and is a quality model kit. But it is a lot harder to assemble and paint than the Darkness kit. I highly reccomend it for fans of the film. It's produced by Dimensional Designs but the best way to order from them is through a company called Q-box. It's listed as 'Swamp Witch' on their kit list and runs for a whopping 150.00! But its worth it. Here's Q-Box's address. Q-Box 144 Nevins St. Dunkirk, NY 14048 Catalog: $4.00
There is a website called Dimensional Designs, located at http://www.dimensionaldesigns.com that has two different Swamp Witch (Meg Mucklebones) model kits. You can go to their web site and do a search on "Swamp Witch" or go to the following links for more information :

According to John Guenther (JOHN2112@webtv.net) :
"Here's that England based co. that carries the 1/3 scale darkness bust. The actual image is located at http://www.mooncrest-models.co.uk/darkness.htm.
Added a cool picture of two converted action figures that were turned into Jack and Darkness - can the person who sent this image resend the original e-mail so I have the rest of this information (mail to firstname.lastname@example.org)? I seem to have deleted the original e-mail by accident.
