Description
 
This wind-up, collector's edition robot is a miniature version of the classic Target Robot from the early 1960s, one of the legendary Gang of Five robots from toymaker Masudaya. It's remarkable for its skirted chassis, hexagonal head, and large scarlet target on its chest. From our 21st-century viewpoint, for all its futuristic, space-age design, it looks remarkably like a boxy mainframe computer on wheels.

The Gang of Five series began in the late 1950s with the crimson Machine Man, followed by the blue Target, scarlet Sonic (Train), lavender Non-Stop, and gun-grey Radicon. Years later, the series was expanded to six robots with the green Shooting Giant. Original full-size vintage models of the series go for over $50,000 at auction.

This five-inch-tall replica version comes in an attractive cardboard box showing the Mini Target robot in front of a giant UFO against a blood-red sky.
