Not really. What it does is using different parts for the transformed/
separated modules, there was no true transformation that allows the parts
to really transform and connect to become the V2. The 1/60 scale version,
OTOH, has not "pre-transformed" parts to switch around with.

My only gripe about the 1/60 V2 is its proportions (not streamlined
enough, too chubby, due to transformation concerns).

That's true, but you only need parts from the V2 A and the V2 B, so buying
a plain V2 doesn't really help if you want to build a V2AB.
