In this video you will learn how to build a retro flip walker toy out of LEGO

This LEGO flip-walking vehicle looks like it has a mind of its own, but it’s really powered only by gravity and a tiny motor. Custom LEGO Builder JK Brickworks walks us through the build in a Videos on YouTubewhich was actually inspired by the Old school bear mobile toy manufactured by Bandai in 1987. It looks like the original toy was meant to be some sort of sci-fi military vehicle, but JK Brickworks gives it a striking new look.

The hypnotic tilting motion is triggered by a trolley moving forward in the center. It puts just enough stress on the machine at the end of its stretch, causing the structure to tip over on two legs and resetting the whole process. As shown in the video by JK Brickworks, the toy’s unique tilting motion allows it to climb small steps and even a slight incline.

If you want a closer look at how to build this oddly satisfying flippy machine, you can check this out for almost two hours recorded live stream from JK Brickworks putting it together piece by piece. It looks like JK Brickworks plans to do detailed building instructions as well, as he states in the description of his design breakdown video that “instructions are coming soon”.

Sure, the machine may serve no purpose at all and have an unnecessarily obnoxious mode of locomotion, but it’s interesting that such a vehicle even exists. As stressed by some users on Redditthe only toy that comes close to that level of intrigue is likely the He-Man kite runner from 1983swinging sideways to take a step forward.
