wondering: have they gotten rid of Lio Convoy's gun accessory, or are they just not bothering to display him with it.

Unfortunately, guys, all four of these things are sold out, with Primal and Lio having been sold out since long before this news was posted.

Welp, looks like it's back to watching eBay. >:oP

Is anyone else super excited for Brainstorm? I admit I'm not a fan of the wings but otherwise he looks like great fun.

Any word on a release date other than January?

Yes. Super excited.
I know there are only a couple of Headmasters in IDW, but I've been hoping we would get a bunch of them for a long time.
Think they'll do Chromedome?

I think he could look a bit more G1, don't get me wrong, I adore the IDW style, but I feel a boxier look would fit in better amongst the other figures in my collection

Nope. That's why Fun Pub was able to do Chromedome: Because Hasbro wasn't planning one.

Though, none of the characters known to be Headmasters in other fiction are Headmasters in IDW (save for Scorponok, but that was short-lived). But it did give us Sunstreaker as one for a while (until he went back to being normal).

Bummer. That Club one looks great but, he's not a headmaster. I guess the IDW situation explains why.
I feel like there are so many old gimmicks they could capitalize on. I miss the modularity of the old days.
But, that's just the old guy talking. :-(

Well, IDW did previously try it's own take on the Headmaster concept, but only utilized Scorponok and Sunstreaker. Though, in this version, becoming a Headmaster was depicted as a ghoulish, torturous, and abominable process. After all, it is basically a form of decapitation anyway. It involved a TF having its head removed, stripped apart, and then hooked up to a computer system that would allow the head to remain in psychically linked to the body whilst said body would be operated by a human in a transformable exosuit that, after an intense ordeal of surgical implantation, becomes the new head, allowing the mind of the TF and the human to become one and enabling the body to be of both persons as one.

Though, it also gave us this nightmare fuel:

More recently, however, IDW has reintroduced the concept via ancient Headmasters from Cybertron's past, but these are all newly-made characters instead of any existing ones.

On the other hand, Funpub is doing lio convoy for next year's freebie, so what takara happens to do just for takara clearly doesn't factor in, which says that while it's extremely unlikely, takara COULD do chromedome.

also, really hope these guys get stocked again at some point after the first run, because I really want that leo convoy. Also hope they get stocked by stores that aren't takaratomy mall, so I can actually order one to the US -_-

Plus, it has become increasingly rare these days for Takara to do something on their own without Hasbro's input or influence. The last new molds Takara made completely on their own were the Swordbots and Optimus ExPrime from Go!, which were original creations rather than based on any existing characters or designs.

Those are a different case, yes. I'm referring to regular figure lines, not the super-duper extra special high-grade for-collectors-only line. ;)

They did briefly introduce Myskrion who was partnered with some one who looked suspiciously like Lione as well as giving us a totally new headmaster Thinkbox.

They do like killing headmasters off almost straight away I must say.

Also, the TF club revealed at RORC that they had been working on concepts for small head masters for deluxe sized figure with ball jointed legs and showed some prototypes, but they were very successful so we're shelved. They actually showed some hard copies too and the first prototype of the Botcon Scorponok(which had a lot of issues).
