The Eighth Annual Pez Collectors Gathering starts tomorrow (Mar. 30) in Stamford, Connecticut.
Organizer Richie Belyski says the robot Pez dispenser is one of the prizes going up for auction at a charity benefit on Friday (Mar. 31).
Belyski says the Pezbot recites catchphrases recorded by actor Bob May, who did Robbys voice on the show, and its the brainchild of Bill Mumy, who played Will Robinson on the Sci-Fi classic.
It seems Mumy is an avid Pez collector and helped make the giant candy dispenser a reality.
The prize Pez dispenser has an estimated worth of $500.
Although the Pezbot should be the talk of the Pez party, Belyeski says fans of the candy dispensers will also play Pez bingo, a costume contest, and enjoy something called a Pez-ini, a food-colored martini.
