Baseball bats were good weapons for crooks because they were innocent enough on the face of it, you're just a baseball player. Unlike a gun or a switchblade knife that only a criminal would carry. Despite having made several Boxer Rebellion sets, this figure on the right is the only real boxer figure that Red Box has ever made. Criminals do beat up each other, the police and other victims and so this is a good pose.
I love the Thompson and so these two could be hit men or G-men. Great poses, love the hats.
One thug with a knife, robbing some poor woman no doubt, and another man with a Thompson, who could be a Secret Service agent defending FDR from Nazi spies or a hit man.
