Toy Machine.

I saw this in a bank of gum ball machine toys at a local dollar store recently. It caught my eye because it just seemed strange stuck in the middle of the other cute little plastic toys in all the adjacent bins.

Does anybody remember the Homies figures that used to be sold in these machines back in the late 1990’s? We used to buy them at the grocery store when we had quarters and we have a whole bag of them somewhere in the house. We liked them because they were so very detailed and well done.

After reading the Wikipedia page, I now know that there was a whole back story to the figures and they are still around here.  And a Google image search  shows some of the figures I remember too.
