Gumball Gangsters

This fellow is known as Rico the Rat.
According to an internet description of this particular Palermo, Rico was kicked out of the old country and is under protection from the godfather. With a nickname like “The Rat,” Rico is probably not one of the most trustworthy guys.

According to Wikipedia:

The Palermos are a series of two-inch plastic collectible figurines created by David Gonzales. Representing an Italian American family and their associates, the Palermos debuted in 2004 as a spin-off of Gonzales’ Homies figures.

In their fictional world, the Palermo family was once one of New York’s most powerful Mafia groups. Trying to “go straight,” they have established a family-run pizza restaurant.
