In 2003 the company Pan Vision obtained the rights to issue ''Robot Wars'' DVDs in the Scandinavian region. The DVDs while they had the original English soundtracks also came with Danish, Finnish, Norwegian and Swedish subtitles. The most notable release is prehaps that of ''The First Great War'', which was never released on DVD in the UK. It is uncertain whether the DVDs featured the extras of the original UK releases though ''The First Great War'' DVD did leave out the ''Robot Builder's Guide'' that was included in the original UK VHS release. Somewhat confusingly they were all billed as part of "The Ultimate Warrior Collection" even though not all of them were treated as such in the UK and as such the Scandinavian Ultimate Warrior Collection boxset's contents are very different from the UK equivalent, instead featuring the inital three Scandinavian DVD releases.
