Eureka has a line of "Boiler Suit Apes." In this line, there is a collection of cosmonaut APES IN SPACE. What, am I made of stone?! Of course I had to get them. Uplifted apes are often used in the spacefuture as cheap, durable labor during the terraforming process--under the watchful eye of the Earth government, of course. Many work with bioengineered soil-tilling arthropods. Here are some scenes of a few of them overseeing the cultivation of a Neptunian moon. The gourdfruit trees are already coming along nicely. There are some rumors that the Space Apes have an underground separatist movement, resentful of their proper status as second-class citizens, and that they might try claiming some of their exoplanetary habitats as their own birthright, bought with the sweat of their low, beetling brows and the strength of their hairy, hairy arms. But who would believe such wild tales of our loyal, friendly helpers? Anyway, here's Taskforce Leader Aperella. A Charisma implant helps her keep her workers in line. And the Stakhanovite albino neogorilla Bonzo. He has the strength of ten men and the work ethic of at least five! Look at those bared teeth. That's the smile of job satisfaction. And here's Charlie. Always a curious fellow, that one. Chief Arthropod Wrangler. It's uncanny the way he can almost communicate with those buggers. Meet Diana! Diana oversees the environmental controls. It's a little warmer than the humans like in here, Diana, and the humidity is off by about 10 percent! She's doing her best, though, bless her. Keep up the good work, Diana! And last but certainly not least, Eddie. We've tried to get him to stop shambling, but old habits, you know! Eddie is a good worker, but did you know he actually failed his intelligence test? The psychologist administering it said the only way to score that low was to deliberately *try* to flunk! Poor, simple Eddie. And here's the whole gang! Wait--why do they have the emergency gauss rifles? And what's Cosmo doing here? W...What are you doing, fellows? ...Pals? Edit: New arrival, Gordy!
I promised "other, different Space Apes," and now it is time to deliver. These are from Eureka's Boiler Suit Apes line, and I wish they would cast more (many things are out of stock and have been for some time.) A few uplifted apes and monkeys have gone rogue! They issued a manifesto calling for simian liberty and a small area of sovereign territory in a rainforest, to be run by the apes themselves (don't say it) as an (don't say it!) agrarian representative democracy. The separatists are led by the mighty and charismatic silverback, General Jumbi. He is both their military and administrative leader (don't say it) and all decisions of importance go through him, as their (don't say it!) unquestioned highest authority. The General's second-in-command is Cornelius, an engineering genius of an uplifted chimpanzee. His custom-engineered multipurpose flamethrower is feared by all who have encountered the war-band and survived. But Cornelius is conflicted; while he loves burning things, his complicity in killing weighs him down emotionally (don't say it). This pyromaniac's guilt tormenting him is a (don't say it!) constant source of turmoil and misery. Here is Zephyr, their communications and technology specialist. Much of the group's funding comes from his financial hacking and judicious investments (don't say it!). Formerly an administrative assistant at a major conglomerate, he is well-versed in (don't say it!) co-ordination, logistics, and resource management. And here are Rango and Tango, artillery specialists. Under the General's brilliant direction, they fend off Earth Government troops in a series of (don't say it) small-group precision hit-and-run strikes, using (DON'T SAY IT!!!) superior knowledge of the terrain and bushcraft to avoid detection while inflicting massive punishment on the more technologically equipped vehicle-bound force. DON'T. SAY. IT.
