Welcome aboard, west_coast!

They are both DVD R2 sets, so they are designed to work in Europe and, strangely, Japan; the USA is R1, and thus the Tintin sets won’t play directly in a standard US DVD player.

However you may be able to play them in a region-free DVD player if you have one and a PAL compatible TV set, or in the DVD drive of a Mac or PC (may require some extra software or resetting the region code).

You could also look on the internet for information about your DVD player, as many can have their region code re-set by entering codes on the hand-set.

My DVD player is multi-region, but my TV isn’t NTSC (the American TV standard; Europe is PAL) compatible, so while I get a picture, it is in black and white (I grew up with B&W TV, so it doesn’t bother me much); I couldn’t guarantee that you will get even that.

Hi.
My question is this:
If price is comparable, should i buy the 10disc UK edition or 6 disc Aussie box set.
I have no region difficulties (Multi region player)
cheers

Where do you live. If you live in UK or close to there get the UK edition. If you live in Australia (like me) or close to there get the Aussie set.
I think the Aussie set is cheaper too.

Sydney boy here. OK sounds like no difference between the 2 boxes.
Might go for the Aussie edition.
Now to find Tintin Et Moi at a reasonable price

I don’t think it has ever had a stand-alone release. It was a limited edition of 5,000 copies; you only get it as a bonus disk (separately packaged) with the 75th Anniversary box-set, and that limited to only a fraction of the sets out there.
