Wow, Ilikemonsters, we have the same little robot figures! I've been meaning to post pics since this thread started, but didn't get around to it til now, after seeing yours. These little (1") figures have been traveling around with me for 40 years. My mom put them on one of my birthday cakes when I was a young'in.





There were also three astronauts and their orange/white  rocketship:



The robots also had a flying saucer with a transparent dome, but that has not survived. Sniff.

I have no idea where my mom got these figures! She often picked up little things like these for my brother and I. And she was creative in using toys on cakes.

Holy crap!
He's got friends! Mine is a little 1" too.
Years ago, I can't remember where, I passed up one that was much bigger.
Those are great, I wonder if they were called Moon Platoon as well.

The figures on that Moon Platoon box look exactly like the ones I have, although they are much more colorful and have the suction cup doo dad. Even when mine were new, they were mostly gray with little dabs of red and gold paint.

I'm wondering if the astronauts are from an entirely different figure set. And if Mom grabbed the rocket and UFO from other sources. A mystery, but now I can look for Moon Platoon! Thanks for sharing some clues.

I used to have a lot more, just kinda gave up, too much. I do have one of the big walkers and a huge troop carrier with giants wheels as I do like the army building aspect of the line!

Hey Ilikemonsters--- see that little pink out- of-focus guy in the background? I think I have some of those. I forget what they are called but last time i saw some on e-bay they went for tons of dough. I have a small handfull of them that I've had since I was a kid. You can see some of mine in this photo just below the Frankenstein wallet, the little green and brown guys. I think I have some blue ones, too.

PEZ dispensers are very cool! They're one of those things I admire but haven't actively taken up collecting - yet!

 ;)

I recall the Pez display in Grants as a kid, early 70s. Had to have been a whole endcap or 4 ft section, right next to the chocolate cigarettes, LOL
