Fight Back Apes (FBA) is a community-driven NFT comeback project created to “fight back” against one of the biggest rug pulls in NFT history: Evolved Apes. In partnership with Daz 3D, the FBA collection will feature fully rigged, customizable 3D NFT avatars for use in VR, MoCap video calls, Snapchat, gaming, animation, and more. Dropping mid-2022.
The collection’s generative artwork highlights four ape species: Chimpanzee, Gorilla, Orangutan, and Baboon — pulling from over 200 unique traits in a retro-futuristic style.
Fight Back With a Mint Pass
The collection trades the standard whitelist for a Mint Pass NFT collection. Each Mint Pass can be burned in exchange for a Fight Back Apes NFT, once available. Mint Pass public access will be available in short runs to ensure community growth is exclusive and rewarding as we approach the official Fight Back Apes launch.
Qualifying Evolved Apes (E/A) holders can mint one free Mint Pass for every E/A NFT they hold (plus gas).
Public Mint Pass minting will require the use of limited-time passcodes, distributed weekly to lucky apes during contests, collabs, and giveaways.
Meshing fiction with real-world events, the Fight Back Apes story takes place in a retro-futuristic dystopia where downtrodden apes are controlled by a ruling class of Neanderthals, aka Evolved Apes Inc., led by the sinister Evil Ape (a name shared by the founder that rugged the Evolved Apes collection IRL). Together, the so-called “lesser” ape species form the resistance known as the Fight Back Apes to end his oppressive regime.
