3:10 to YUMA?

"3:10 to Yuma" is a Western film (2007) which is a remake of the 1957 film of the same name. The 2007 version starred Russell Crowe as Ben Wade, an infamous outlaw and Christian Bale, a Civil War veteran Dan Evans who volunteers to put Wade on the 3:10 train to Yuma, where Wade will stand trial. It was touted as "The best Western since Unforgiven!" and IMHO, it certainly was. Great movie made greater by the performances of both Christian Bale and Russell Crowe.

Imagine if the pair acted in a movie set in IRAQ along a similar storyline. Couldn't help taking a dig at it since Hot Toys released both head sculpts.

Russell's from the US NSW(Naval Special Warfare) Forces Desert Ops

The likeness is remarkable

Christian Bale is a M249 Gunner from the USMC

They're both amazing actors. Good-looking figures, Alex-san. :)

Someone should kitbash Christian Bale from American Psycho. And that someone will be me once I bust his head out from the Tak Bats box! Hah!
