I'm assembling a fantasy/Pulp Alley league of classic "Jungle Girls" and two charactyers I need to include are Nova (from Planet of the Apes) and Tondelayo (from White Cargo). See stills -- can anyone refer me to good 25mm figures that are close matches for these two ladies? Ta!

Hedy Lamarr's Tondelayo:

Linda Harrison's Nova:

I'd say check out Pulp Figures. The South Seas figures might have what you need.

Yes, that was one of the first places I looked. I have a ton of Pulp Figures but can't quite find a Nova or Tondelayo match there. I may have to resort to Hero Forge and build my own, altho' that's expensive. But I finally went that route for La of Opar.

Black Tree Design (yes, I know) has a Leela figure in their Dr. Who line that might work for Nova. It might need a little work, though.

A link would be nice, wouldn't it? link

Getting close!

I've been looking at various cave women but so far they've been too fur-clad or too heavily armed for Nova. Some dancing girls might be suitable for Tondelayo if I ignore things like long skirts or harem pants. It's been surprisingly tough to find good matches.

Not a lot of female minis sculpted in sarongs!

For Nova I would recommend one of Copplestone's Cavewomen. link
They are not too fur-clad and I believe the weapons are separate or can be easily removed.

Aye-aye, thanks! I have a set of the Copplestone cavewomen coming -- some are bare-legged, and not holding weapons, so I can either smooth over the fur into leathers with green stuff or just let it go and not worry about it.
