Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
I’ve seen two twins talk in perfect unison in the past. It was so impressive… I’d really love to hear that again some time!! Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at this upcoming item from Phat!
Ami Futami & Mami Futami!
|From the anime series ‘IDOLM@STER’ comes a 1/8th scale figure featuring both of the mischievous twins – Ami Futami and Mami Futami! The pose is based on the illustration by director Atsushi Nishigori seen on the 4th volume of the Blu-ray & DVD jacket for the anime series, and is the first in series to feature two characters as a single figure!
The figure has been carefully sculpted to have the two characters fit together naturally, and also features a lovely selection of eye-catching colors that all come together to create a figure filled with highlights! Mami also comes with an alternate expression part which can be used to display her with her eyes open instead – simply pick the pose that you prefer!
The mischievous, playful twin idols in an energetic pose!
The innocent appearance and positive vibes of the twins has been captured so nicely, allowing you to enjoy the charms of both Ami Futami & Mami Futami as a single figure!
The colourful one-piece outfits with the sporty yellow vests as well as the alternate colored scrunchies in their hair, headphones and kind-of matching socks… the super colorful design matches with their huge smiles so nicely!!
These kind of patterns are often done with decals, but that can sometimes leave behind a bit of a rough appearance. The painter behind the figure – Maimocchi (Turunoyakata) – wanted to ensure that the vivid coloring and colorful impression was preserved in detail for fans to enjoy!
Ami’s hair has been sculpted to capture the movement of her jumping up onto Mami’s back, while Mami’s bent over back with her ponytail fluttering around is also so intricately sculpted…
Everything comes together to create such a realistic dynamic effect! They look ready to jump to life!
The original illustration was always amazing, but now you can enjoy that adorable pose from any angle that you please!
Anyway, this is in fact the 9th figure in the IDOLM@STER BD/DVD Jacket Illustration series!
Let’s have a look through all the figures in the series so far… (●´ω｀●)

#2: Iori Minase
#3: Yayoi Takatsuki
#4: Miki Hoshii
#5: Takane Shijou
#6: Makoto Kikuchi
#7: Yukiho Hagiwara
#8: Azusa Miura
…the members have really started to come together now! Just a few to go after the twins! ♪
But anyway, let’s get back to AmiMami! (・∀・)
Ever since the Blu-ray/DVD jacket series started, the series has kept the details of both the characters as well as the most intricate parts of their outfits and accessories in tact. ♡
The yellow down vests make use of a glossy paintwork giving them a nice texture, and you can even see the difference in material through the sculpt where Ami’s hand is grabbing on to Mami’s shoulder!
The original jacket cover illustration had Ami with her eyes closed which does showcase her carefree personality nicely, but for those fans who would rather see the energetic Ami with her eyes wide open, this alternate expression is also included for you to choose between!! ♡
I recommend a slightly low to meet up with her eyes nicely! ♡
