    I know Skullgrin is a repaint of Darkmount but I can't decide which to buy. If my finances were better I would buy both but one is the present limit. I do like Darkmount's backstory a bit better though. Skullgrin's paint scheme seems to be better. (sighs) I just can't choose.:banghead:

    I'd say it depends on how much you like Marvel homages. If those are really appealing to you, then get Darkmount. If not, I'd say Skullgrin may or may not be cooler. Like you said, his color scheme is slightly cooler, and his head is totally metal

    Skullgrin does look better even when side by side, u cant go wrong there.

    Save a little and wait for another sale, Darkmount is still floating around out there.

    You can't "see" a backstory. If you like Skullgrin's paint scheme better, I'd say go with him!

    I have both of them, but I must say that I like Skullgrin a little more.

    I like Darkmount a bit more. The head still bothers me a little on Skullgrin, but it really is a toss up since neither is too high on my "this is cool" list. If you plan on getting both at some point, determine which one is more scarce in your area, cause I think one (or both) of these will warm the pegs a little bit.

    They are both great but in your situation I say pick up Darkmount now. Skully is currently peg warming EVERYWHERE I go.

    I'd pick up Darkmount. I like his coloring and such. Skullgrin is good for the bio on the back of his card though.

    I didn't really care about either character prior to seeing the toys, but liked the mold and picked Darkmount/Straxus because of the headsculpt - and I'm one of maybe three people in the TF community that prefers Darkmount's color scheme to Skullgrin's.

    I'm in the same situation as the OP definitely want this mold but don't know who to get. At the moment I'm leaning towards Darkmount, I like the character better and the colour scheme. Plus I've bought way too many white/greyish guys lately (Jazz, WJ, Drift, WFC Megs) so I think I'm due to mix it up a bit. Guess my only negative would be I don't really like Darkmount's heald sculpt that much.
