Yeah, that is AWESOME! I love the glow in the dark stuff!
I think Lego should start making more glowing things. I mean, Exo-Force had "Glow Bricks" why can't Star Wars?

Thanks for blogging that!
The glowing effect is made with AAA batteries, inverter, and EL-cable.

Looks good, but what does it look like with the lights on?

Good question. Are the cables hidden, or do they stick out?
True happiness: looking inside the box to see a perfectly flat instruction manual.

Wow that is cool!  I love it when people MOD lightsabers so they light up.  Very nice presentation and great work! :thumbup:

Nice job, spacepilot3000! Just what the UCS Grievous needed. :sweet: Just not sure if *swoosh* is a good lightsaber effect. I'm partial to the *snap-hiss* from the Thrawn Trilogy days.

The cables all are hidden "behind" the Lego Technic Parts of the Generals arms and legs, and within his body. Nothing ist sticking out.
Only if you look from the back you can see cable parts on arms and legs because I haven't drilled the Lego Technik parts.

Ooh, very cool real lighting lightsabers, great work! Just don't let the UCS GG go near a jedi, as he's known to lose those arms and lightsabers quickly. :tongue:

Excellent lighting job! The lights really make it look like a true action figure/SW statue you'd buy for $250 at some hobby shop. Great work :thumbup:
