Looking for suitably attired bank manager/tellers for 1920/30s and more modern to use in bank robberies by Prohibition era gangsters and 1970s The Sweeney blaggers.

The only ones I have found so far are for the Old West and feel they are too dated.

Any suggestions?

Reviresco in their 'Roleplaying' range have some flappers and beau's which might do, at least some of the male figures are wearing suits and tuxedos but no weapons.

I think there are a few other Prohibition ranges out there with suit wearing males who are ostensibly unarmed. And someone makes a Winston Churchill and minder set, I own 2 of them but can't remember the brand (or where I put them)

Copplestone, Steve Barber, Eureka, THW, and 1st Corps all have unarmed interwar civilians that might fill the bill. These in addition to the fine Reviresco figures mentioned above.

I meant Dixon, not 1st Corps!

Pulp figures exudes just what you want. There's well-dressed bank managers and clerks in most of the non-military Ranges. They are mixed in with other types, and you may need to snip off a gun or umbrella here or there. Lots have hats on, so little trimming there or a head transplant.

The only difference between a bank manager and a gangster is that the gangster has a gun :-)

Thanks for the sugeestions.

I already have a lot of the pulp era non-combatants which will have to do as proxies.

However, I not really found much that will do for the 1970s.

…and the manager has his hands in the air! ;-)

Alan, did you find what you need? I looked in my box of figures in suits with no hats and I found a few. I can send you a photograph and you can pick out the ones you want if any.
