The 1/60 scale V2 Gundam transforms without swapping, but as a rule of thumb
for swap-less transformation you want to go with toys, which tend to go up
exponentially in price as they go out of print. The 1/55 scale Takatoku
diecast toys of the Valkyries are going for hundreds of dollars on eBay, and
recently a Takatoku diecast SDF-1 went for almost $1,000 there too. Get
them damn toys while you can...
