Create a hidden staircase

January 12, 2023



We have found a LEGO® technic construction namely a staircase appearing out of nowhere. Created by Ikarus Studios, this staircase was used for a MOC of a Secret underground temple passageway inspired by the Mandalorian. We will first show his LEGO® kinetic sculpture, as it is called, so you can get an good idea of his construction.

We get that you want to know how Ikarus Studios pulled this off. And fortunately, he shows this in a second video. In it, he shows in detail how he pulled off this clever piece of engineering.

You can see that not even very special LEGO® parts are needed to make this structure. And that it is mainly clever use of guides for the stair parts. With the Technic Linear Actuator Mini with Dark Bluish Gray Head and Orange Axle, a rotating movement is converted into a retractable movement that brings the stair parts down or up. Ikarus Studios has used this technique in a LEGO® mandalorian MOC and we are very curious to see what fun applications you guys can think of for other MOCs. We ourselves were thinking of a MOC for LEGO® Indiana Jones.

In any case, we thank Ikarus Studios for sharing the technique in its videos. You can also find these videos on his YouTube channel. There are not a lot of videos in there right now but be sure to follow this channel because who knows what else is coming.

About LEGO® Technic

Technic is the theme for LEGO® fans who like to build ingenious, moving sets. LEGO® Technic creations are full of inventive building techniques that simulate reality. LEGO® Technic is therefore an advanced theme, but also suitable for slightly older children with an interest in technology.

At ToyPro you will find a wide collection of LEGO® Technic sets with which you can build cars (including super cars), trucks, ships, cranes and helicopters.
