    I'm sorry but I don't trust them anymore. I bought v1 from TF-Direct a few months ago. As soon as the head replacement preorder was available, I preordered mi v2 head along with a sticker sheet. I got the stickers the following week, but I never got the head. I tried to contact them and I asked them what happened since they haven't shipped it yet. Moreover, they have never sent me an email with a shipping notification. So far, I haven't had any kind of feedback. No tracking number, no reply.
    Their customer support hasn't helped me at all...

    Got a second 2nd run head through from tf-express (first came courtesy of resident top man @oku) so if anyone in the UK wants my spare for the price of postage then it’s yours. Not without some paint chips though...

    After seeing the version 2 head and how amazing this figure looks and from watching all the great reviews, I dropped my MP 3.0 pre-order from Amazon JP... I have a buddy of mine I cut a phenomenal deal to for just the MP 2.0 Optimus figure only plus the weapons, but I'm keeping the trailer. Since the Transform Element figure can fit the MP 2.0 Matrix, I also got the LED Matrix from Shadow Fisher. Also ordered both decal sets from our board members here. Still waiting for the figure to arrive, but I'm super excited!!!

    The MP10 matrix will go into his chest but you can't close it. If you're just wanting to display him with the matrix chamber open, that should be fine, but you'll have to remove it to close his chest.

    I also wanted to do that. But as @Snaku says, the mp10 matrix not fit, so I abandoned it.
    I don't know what happens with the Shadow Fisher matrix. Please tell the result...

    Hmmm...I'm gonna try my MP10 matrix in TE01 when I get home from work today. I figure it can close, but will check it out when I get home. I'll post pics of the process.

    Sorry to hear that. I've had issues with TF Direct before, but their customer service usually responds very quickly and takes care of things for me. Did you try messaging them on FB? That seems to work very well to get their attention.

    Well by all means give it a try and let us know. I couldn't get it to close all the way (and I note that the video doesn't give you all that good a look at the closed matrix chamber nor does he close the chest up) but if you can figure out a trick to it, I'd be eager to know.

    Well I have the Hasbro Reissue version with Vector Sigma. I'll see if that makes a difference.

    Yea, I saw that in the video. If it fits, I'll post pics showing how.

    Iv'e had nothing but good experiences with TF-Direct as well, they respond to messages via Email and Facebook within a day and ship orders out the next day. The company is run by humans and everyone can make errors. its what they do after the errors that counts.

    How many attempts did you make in trying to contact them? Hopefully you paid with Paypal.

    The MP10 & Shadow Fisher matrix will not fit in TE-01. The chest windows will not completely shut with it inside.
