I'm looking to score some evil space apes for an upcoming campaign. They should be armed to the teeth with weapons of 21st century or higher tech. I know Eureka does some. I know Reaper does one such ape. What are my other options?

I'll give Planet of the Apes figures a look if they're beautiful, but they may be too low-tech for my purposes. I do like that PotA includes several different species of apes.

I did some for SJG's 'Uplift' but they don't seem to be available any more. It's a problem with anything licensed. Reaper had some cyborged ones, I think.

I just KNOW a few years ago there were these heavy-weapon wielding gorillas called Kaman's or something, light blue and white armor… not sure what game system, cannot seem to locate pics on Google.

AT43 "Karman" that's it…

Googling did not reveal a place you could buy Karman AT-43 apes. Are they OOP?

Also, might want to try eBay or Bartertown or put an ad here in TMP also.

@JC Lira … How many Karmans do you need? I bought a ton of them back in the day, and before I ever got to use them, I ended up chasing a job that took me away from my usual gaming group. So I have a bunch. Would be happy to part with them for reasonable-cheap.

If interested, send me an email at SeattleRed (at) aol (dot) com and we can discuss what you need.

Just painting weapons in unusual colors is sometimes enough to make them work for science fiction. You can also glue a piece of thread or fine wire (like from a twist-tie) between the weapon and a backpack or something, and you have power source connected to an energy weapon.

Check Miniatures Market, they often have old AT43 stuff.

Old Glory has a bunch of simians in its SuperFigs line, I think some are cyborg'ed up.

Eurika, also has some boiler-suit apes that may work for you.

Love the Karmins. If you get a chance go for it. They also have fighters/speeders that are the dog's…

Yeah, AT-43 Karmans are OOP, but they can be found on Ebay and Miniature Market typically.

Dust Apes are more apes with a weird power fist type.
