Space Trooper a.k.a. Robot is a full body dispenser. See also Robot Body Parts.
Original PEZ creation
One of the earliest dispensers, the Space Trooper is one of only two full-body designs. "PEZ" is written on the back of the dispenser.
It was not a good seller and was only available at retail for about a year. Space Troopers were sold loose, without packaging or candy. The production cost for the relatively-complicated design of the full-body dispensers was high compared to the earlier Regulars, and as such they were sold without candy. The dispenser was sold in a counter box which held 12 dispensers.
