Need help finding Ape figures!!

As you may know I am entirely obssesed by the Idea of a
!!!CHIMPS WITH JETPACKS!!!
unit. I have been pondering over the idea for a while and decided I would make a custom. Then I ran into a problem. I could not find a figure that would work for this idea!

Does anybody here know about any good ape/chimp figures that I could use?

Changed into Jetpacks.

But do you have any suitable figures?

reapersaurus is a puppet of Ne-Gok-Sa
just use the big Ape Warlord fig recently by Reaper minis, and have him be able to throw the other chimps into battle.

Here's the ability name............... ready for it?

you could get some jetpacks from Warhammer 40K or from pulpfigures.com and put them on the gorillanators....

Not sure if any of them really would go with the jetpack theme, but I always go to D&D minis whenever I need a figure. Their latest set has a War Ape:

I use the Taer as a proxy for Dzu-Teh - it looks a lot like an ape:

There are also Bugbears and the like that look ape-like as well.

Okay here you go These are from Black Orc Games. They are part of the game Hundred Kingdoms, its a war faction called Simian Empire, ape as Roman Legions. they work well with Heroscape stuff. I don't have this army but do have a couple of others from this game that I use as customs. I would, as Doc said add jetpacks from GW which can be ordered seperately.

By all means go your own way with that figure, like you, I really like that sculpt But if you'd like to playtest the above, I would love to hear how it goes...

Those Hundred Kingdoms apes are great figs but are large. Here is a comparison photo of one of the figures beside a Primadon:

So how big is their War Gorla? You know the king kong like figure. (one of two apes on their site who has no clothes on.)

P.S. I am not really familiar with the WarHammer 40k. What figures have jetpacks that would come off easy enough to work for the primadon rocketeers?
