SPACEFUTURE: Eureka's APES! IN SPAAAACE! (pic-heavy)

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!

Great job!

 

I'm pretty sure we all misunderstood their actions.

There is a perfectly sound explanation why these Simians are carrying weapons, I just haven't found it yet.

 

There is NO APE REBELLION!

Just carry on with your daily business as usual, the Government is in control!

*YESSS,* this is 100% spot-on for a setting inspired by Cold War science fiction.

You can Trust the Earth Government. The Earth Government works in your best interests. They are keeping Government Secrets secret for your protection.  :blues:

I'm expecting Charlton Heston to make a cameo appearance....  ;-)


Oh, there's a tattered two-fisted and bare-chested Wastelander that I think might fit that bill...stay tuned! 
Thanks, folks!

Found an Astro-Chimp from Cold War Miniatures: I think Gordy will fit right in.
The jetpack was a modification from Bombshell. 

Best part is, he comes with a sprue of two extra head options--teeth-bared and astronaut helmet. Gonna have some conversions to do!
