Hi all. I'm usually a City fan, but the technic set 42082 has really caught my attention and I plan on getting it real soon. Something this big deserves an LED light kit, but I don't know which one to get. There are plenty of offerings on the market (most of the sets on fishpond seem to come from one supplier), so I don't know which supplier is more reputable. Also, which one would be the easiest to install? Anything else I should know when installing lights on this set? TIA!
AnkTales posted a topic in LEGO LicensedHI guys I want to share this video with you. Hope you like the intro I've made :) I recommend, raise the volume of the audio !! Today we present a new product of the company Light My Bricks which offers complete solutions through the production of lighting kits specially designed for many LEGO sets on the market. This kit is made for the Led lighting of the Ghostbusters LEGO Ecto-1 set. The packaging is really well done, and in the front there is the big logo of the company Light My Bricks and later a set of information about it. The name of the LEGO set for which the kit is studied is shown below, on one of the two apertures of the package. Within the package we find the soft sponge that protects the electronic components inside. Let's see them together: 9 fixed white leds 9 white flashing leds 2 expansion cards with 12 ports 1 battery holder (requires two CR2032 batteries) the information booklet LEGO extra pieces Specifically, the extra LEGO pieces inside the kit are: 6 Lego 1 × 1 plates with clip (gray) 4 Lego 1 × 6 plates (white) 4 Lego 1 × 2 plates (gray) 4 Lego 1 × 2 plates (transparent blue) 1 Lego 1 × 1 round plate (transparent blue) As always, the LEDs and expansion cards are individually contained inside the antistatic sachets. Anti-static envelopes are used to protect electronic components from electrostatic discharge. The kit instructions can be found on the manufacturer's website and can be viewed online or downloaded in PDF format. In the booklet inside the box there are only a number of generic tips. The model is full of illuminating elements thanks to the presence of many headlights on the roof of the vehicle and expansion boards, and all electronic components are inserted inside the vehicle. As instructors, to install this led kit we will have to disassemble several pieces, including the roof and all the windows, in order to access the bricks of our interest. The installation of the led in the front lights and blue light on the left side of the car are easy. Just remove both front wheel arches and headlights and then put in the non-flashing LEDs. Same identical operation for blue spotlight. All present cables come into the interior of the passenger compartment and are fixed with gray slopes. For the two red headlamps, just remove the rear glass and the two red cones. Flashing LEDs are inserted here. For a clean job, we recommend rolling the cables around the expansion card. Refit the front glass and side windows to later install the lights on the roof of the machine. This part is quite complex. The components are so many. There are 11 LEDs in total. Finally, we connect the two expansion cards between them and light up the lights. First, however, we have to put the batteries in the dedicated compartment. The finished model is very similar to the original set and all electrical wiring is hidden inside the car. The mix of fixed and flashing lights in this kit make the ecto 1 very cinematic. In conclusion I can say that this kit I particularly liked. The Led are so small that they can be easily inserted into 1x1 rounds. This is not the first kit I try, in the past I tried the kit for the Big Bang Thoery set (my favorite among those I've tried) and that for the UCS Tumbler. You can see the videos by clicking Big Bang Theory and UCS Tumbler. If you are interested in these kits, I suggest you contact Light My Bricks guys on their Facebook page. If you live in Europe, I know they have some resellers. For Christmas I hope to be able to illuminate my little diorama. I will upload video updates on the channel.
Hello guys! In the past I had tried to illuminate some of my moc with the led strips. For small buildings they did not do well. I found this solution and I'm satisfied. The set illuminated, makes beautiful home feeling. P.S: I wanted to put photos but are heavy, I have to load them outside?
Good day! I'm looking for LED Lights that are suitable for use in LEGO MOCs. And that would (much preferably) be the type of LED lights that are connected to a cable (or cables) - not the "bulb with metal rods" kind of things. They can range from small to big, all kinds of different colours, and some should be able to fit into certain pieces. I'm looking for LED lights that can be re-used for different MOCs and thus, different things - mainly (if not only) Star Wars / Sci-Fi MOCs. To show you what kind of things I'm planning to do with them, I'll give you a few examples (not my pics): That should sum it up pretty well. Hopefully somebody can help me find out what kind of LED Lights these are and where I should be able to get them. And if a store in The Netherlands happens to sell them, then that would be fantastic. Thanks in advance!
