I don't care what anyone says this is Straxus who sits on the throne of Darkmount and it's great that they finally gave him his own figure. Too bad that figure is a hot mess of plastic that doesn't really fit together very well in any mode with knee joints that barely and I mean barely hold up the weight of him. Couple that with snap on weapon systems that look like they came from a different toy. I want so desperately to like this but I just can't.

I wish this had better articulation or maybe better arms at least. Still a pretty good figure, overall.

Darkmount is based on Straxus, a character from the G1 Marvel comics, but is instead named after a Decepticon fortress. He has a complex transformation, very poseable bot mode, and toooons of c-clip points. He comes with three c-clip weapons in addition to the regular weapon. A lot of bang for your buck.

Looks good with all the clip-on weapons. Good match with Skullgrin, especially if you add all his weapons onto Straxus/Darkmount.

Since he's based on a comic character, I wasn't really bothered with him, but he's pretty decent anyways.

darkmount is based of a villain from the marvel comics series of transformers by the name of Straxus. one look at this figure and you can tell right away. the alt mode is is a very peculiar tank with two front wheels. albeit an adventurous and unorthodox design, the weapons from robot mode incorporate themselves into the alt mode so intricately, down to the pickaxe becoming the tank's main gun barrel.

the transformation is tricky as to figuring out where it all goes, but it's so worth it in the end. the bot mode is something fierce to behold. all his little to no extra kibble left over from transformation, and 5mm pegs and clips to add on more weapons you may have lying around that fit to turn him into a real deathdealer.

all in all, whether you're a fan of straxus in the comics or not, darkmount's a must have in my book.

Wow, was I surprised at this figure. I remember buying it because I had all the other transformers on the shelf, and had been reluctant to purchase Darkmount due to a lack of faith. I was wrong, and I can admit that. Super articulate robot mode. Awesome coloring. BAMF headsculpt. Fun transformation. Sweet transforming tank mode. If you don't have it, get it. You won't be sorry, actually you'll be glad. Which is the opposite of sorry.

Based on the classic Marvel character, Straxus, this figure is the most up-to-date version of the classic character we have ever gotten. His alt mode is nice and blocky, but the articulation isn't hindered in the slightest. He transforms into what appears to be a G6 Rhino half-track self-propelled artilery tank, which even sports a nice little MC-17 Easter egg on the side paying homage to Marvel Comics #17, the first issue Straxus appeared in. He comes loaded with weapons, including a turret axe, clip on gun, missile pod and barrel. Transformation is slightly more complex for a Deluxe, but the end result is totally worth it! A great homage to a lesser known character that should be in every Transformers collection...

I never read the TF UK comics so have no emotional attachment to Straxus/Darkmount, but this is cool mode with good robot and vehicle modes. I like the accessories and the more obscure homage. Still, if you only want one version of this mold, I'd go with Skullgrin, whose deco I like better.

Having just finished reading the old G1 comics, I like that they released a figure of this character. It's a neat take on him and the tank concept fits in well with his position as a Decepticon leader, seeing as it is becoming the traditional alt-mode for these guys (ie, Megatron, Galvatron, Bludgeon). The figure looks OK, however the transformation is a not the greatest. There's a lot of kibble, and there are some of the joints just don't seem to do the job. Best used as a bulky backgrounder who doesn't have to do much posing.

this is an amazing figure. Totally recommend him. He looks awesome in both modes. Is very articulate and can make some really awesome poses. He is suppose to be another decepticon leader and ruled at the same time as Megatron but on opposite sides of Cybertron. They both kept out of each others wake. All in all in a very cool figure.

The Clipped-on Machine Gun has a small crack on it from stress. I got this guy with Generations Megs.

great figure, good details and color, his recolored re release has a much better head mold and details but the color scheme on Darkmount is better.

This figure is awesome and looks great. I would highly recommend this figure to anyone collecting this line.

I like the Generations collection, the transformations are fun and the figures were thoughtfully designed

An excellent idea that went wrong in too many places. Darkmount starts off with a neat little tank mode, managing to be far more interesting than most generic tank-formers that get released. His transformation, however, is a mess of parts crashing into other parts. The process is frustrating, complex, and often ends with parts just popping off. The robot mode is nice, though posing can be complicated by the weird ankles and huge backpack. He also has a "third" mode that is suppose to be some kind of weapons platform or gun turret, but it just comes across as a half exploded tank. Overall, kind of "meh".

Small clip guns that are easy to lose and horrible looking ankles. Still this is an okay figure (even though mine came with a weak hip ball-joint) of a comic book character. His weapon is neat in the way it goes into his vehicle mode, I would never expect to pull a pickaxe out of him!

Still can't figure out how his backpack is supposed to hold his weapon.
