The big piece (fourth from the top) is not an injection molded part. Blow molding maybe. Collapsing core injection molding is possible, but you'll pay more, and I doubt any options exist to collapse enough to come out of that small of an opening.

It is hard to tell from the image, but the parts require draft angles for injection molding. Without draft the parts will be stuck in the mold, and have drag marks on their surfaces.
