In advance: Make legs and shoes. For shorter legs, cut pretzel rods to 2 1/2 in. and 6 1/2 in. long (4 each). For longer legs, cut pretzel rods to 4 1/2 in. and 6 1/2 in. long (4 each). Tint fondant black. Roll 8 each 3/4 in. balls for leg joints; reserve remaining black fondant. Assemble shorter legs, inserting 1 of each size pretzel in leg joints at a 45° angle; secure with melted candy. Repeat for longer legs, assembling at slightly less than a 90° angle. Let dry.
