There are several versions of replica chessmen available, but they all seem to use only some very common pieces & the same ones from the few manufacturers. RickofRicks on eBay (his website ancienctchess.com) has the broadest replication of pieces I've been able to find; he also has some great information about the process of how different companies have replicated pieces & ideas on why so many pieces have not been done.
