  1. Homies

    Homies are a series of 2-inch figurines based upon Chicano characters in the life of artist David Gonzales. They were first created in 1997, coming from a comic strip that David Gonzales created; these plastic figurines initially sold in vending machines mainly located in supermarkets. Homies have become a highly collectible item among fans. Many imitation toys have hit the market following the success of Homies. The figures caused controversy after their initial release as members of the Los Angeles Police Department, argued that the figures glorified gang life. Many stores stopped selling the toys after the LAPD complained. Gonzales then created a story for each of the Homies' characters, each of which portrayed a positive view of the characters. For example, some of them became former jail mates who went on to educate children about how to avoid jail. Homies also came around to helping adolescents with identifying who they are. Mainstream stores, such as Walmart, quickly returned the Homies to their stocks, and the toy branched out to include a line of die cast cars, among other things. By 2005, the Homies character line had women, Filipino, Japanese, and Puerto Rican, and even Evil Clown characters. The Puerto Ricans set, which includes twelve of the Homies, are nicknamed Los Boricuas. According to Gonzales, he has received orders from countries in Europe, South America and Africa requesting characters representing people from those continents. In 2004, the creators of Homies, created "Los Mijos" intended for a younger audience. They are solely Hispanic and are portrayed as kids, babies, and teens. In 2007, a show was made about the figures called The Homies Hip Hop Show. The show had many negative reviews saying the figures don't even move, all they do is stand there and shake. The show did make it to DVD.
