AM-01 looks to be some kind of hermit crab, AM-02 is a bird/hawk thing and AM-03 is a crocodile. My only complaint about the set is that I have no idea what AM-01's weapon mode is supposed to be. Is it a cannon? A crossbow? The monster from Final Fantasy? Who knows.

I wish there is a way for Westerners to get the arms micron.

The first animal is a horseshoe crab, and there's a W for each of them.

Like AMW-01; as AM-01 is Voyager Optimus Prime.

And lastly, I have also no idea what is the weapon of AMW-01; looks weird..

On the packaging there is no 'W' that I could make out. I will double check when I get home but the packaging only has "AM-0#"

It's in silver, above the name. It stands for "Arms Micron Weapon". And Gabu is indeed a horseshoe crab. Nobody could figure that one out for a long time. And Baru is a falcon to be exact, at least according to his packaging :)

I don't think he transformed AMW-01 right. The photo on the package shows what looks like the tip of a blade sticking out the bottom/front of the weapon mode, which I'm going to say is indeed a crossbow.

I'm having mixed feelings about all these Arms Micron Weapons.

AMW-01 might be a crossbow, would be interesting to find out officially what it is.

Thanks so much for all the info. It's really helpful considering I can't read Japanese. So let me get some of the facts straight so I may update the video with this info:

Horseshoe Crab = Gab (Gabu)
Falcon = Bal (Baru)
Crocodile = Dai

Gab (Gabu) => Double Blade
Bal (Baru) => Wide Blade
Dai => Rocket Launcher

Sword name = Dark Calibur
