Red Box Crooks

Naturally, to go with the Red Box Coppers, there is the Red Box Robbers.

These are 1/72nd scale soft plastic figures that require no assembly.

I love the poses in this set. Like the Cops set the person who came up with the weapons, poses, clothing and accessories did a great job. Like the Cops set, I wish that same person worked for Imex, or HaT or any one of many other companies. The figures have flash and the weapons are not well defined.

The greatest thing about this set is most of the figures can be several different things. The man on the left has a Thompson sub machine gun. Criminals used them in the 1930's, but so did police, detectives, private security guards, the FBI and other good guys. The other fellow would make a good crime boss or a good detective.

These two women have revolvers and are clearly from the 1920's to the 1930's era. We don't get enough female figures in this scale and this pair of gun molls is long overdue.
