Installation could've been a bit more detailed but got there in the end, overall impressed, thanks
I have finally completed the installation of the light kit and I have also added additional 32 micro lights to the lanterns at the base of the Eiffel tower (separate spare light bits that I had). Thank you!
The lights look very impressive. The installation instructions should be improved. Specific points:
- The installation of the lights is an increment more difficult than actually building the model because it is often difficult to see. in the pictures, exactly where the wires are to be placed. The wires should be highlighted in some of the pictures.
- The installation instructions should either be reordered to plug the various sections into the controller when they are placed, instead of waiting for the end, OR label the wires to indicate which goes where. (This model is not amenable to construct on a table then display on the floor so it is very difficult to get low enough to trace the wires after it is assembled.)
Let’s light up the LEGO Eiffel Tower!!
Great light, but very difficult to install. The notice could be better more explain. Whatever, everything is perfect !
I have received my order, with no problems at all, very happy with it.
Thank you very much!
After building the lego main street, installed the lights easy by following the guide
When you put the lights on for the first time, a WOW effect will come
Light Kit For Holiday Main Street 10308
Overall very happy with the kit. It certainly brings the Holiday Main Street to life.
Fantastic item, trustworthy transaction. Total enhanced Optimus overall look, especially in the dark! Already unto another purchase with LeLightGo!
I thought it was a no brainer to get a light kit to accompany this LEGO set. Being my first, it took me a little while to install but as you can see from the images, the final effect is worth it. There are two versions of the kits available; a standard lighting kit and a more advanced one that produces sounds and comes with an infrared remote control.
The kit was reasonably straightforward to install, much to my surprise. I have zero experience with such things and yet the instructions (provided as a PDF) were fairly easy to follow. The kit comes with certain pieces, such as the shoulder lights etc, pre-installed inside replacement studs. Items like the eyes and circuit boards come with adhesive backings which are stuck to various parts of the figure and all are concealed well bar one connector piece, which needs to be adhered to the back of Prime’s ‘crotch’. Unfortunately, very specific wire lengths won’t allow for any manoeuvrability here. Speaking of manoeuvrability, I found that Prime’s head lost some poseability after the eye lights were installed, due to the wires on the right side of his head. This is unfortunate and of the very few downsides to this kit. Another problem I found was that the cable to attach the speaker to the circuit board was much shorter than as shown in the instructions. But with a little fiddling and some forcing, the connector went into the circuit board and all worked fine.
Another downside (which is also unavoidable from what I can tell) is that the circuit board and speaker needs to be fitted into the chest cavity where the Matrix would normally sit. Once those two parts are in, unfortunately there is zero room to house The Matrix. Finally, regarding gripes, the kit is supposedly designed in a way to have it fitted and still transform the figure. Unfortunately, this isn’t fully the case, as the jetpack needs to be removed for transformation, so you’ll find yourself unplugging the jetpack lights every time you wanted to transform Prime. Now, if you’re like me, you’ll likely just keep this guy in robot mode so there’s no need to worry about breaking the seemingly delicate connectors by constantly un-plugging and plugging them. The same goes with the Energon Axe but again I’m not massively keen on it due to the aforementioned weight of it hindering poseability. The Axe does look great lit up though but it’s not something I’d want on show with Prime, as the blaster looks cleaner in / on his Arm.
In terms of audio, there are a number of ‘tracks’ the kit comes with. There’s a combination of music and numerous sound effects but sadly, no voice. I feel not including some of Peter Cullen’s original, iconic lines is a missed opportunity. Instead, you’ll be able to play Unicron’s Medley from the ’86 film, the original ’84 opening credits theme music, the classic transforming sound, and a series of sound effects ranging from the backpack firing up and the truck’s turrets / engine sound. There are some various sound effects too which I can’t quite discern and will likely never use.
The volume can also be adjusted as well as the brightness levels, so there’s good functionality with this kit. Overall, I’d say it’s a worthy addition to the set, providing the minor hindrances I’ve mentioned don’t bother you.
This is by far one of the best kits I’ve bought in recent months and I’d be surprised if many disagreed. And the additional LeLightGo light kit will be the icing on the cake for many I’m sure. All we need now, aside from a little Energon and a lot of luck, is a G1 Megatron to face Prime off against so that fans can recreate the classic Sherman Dam fight from the original series and their classic face-off from the 1986 animated film.
It’s hard to make @lego Optimus Prime more awesome but the @lelightgo kit did just that! 🤯
wow! Just wow! I can't express how fun this set is with the light on
Just awesome lights and not too hard to assemble. Good instructions and good lightning in general 🙂 very pleasantly surprised
I have received the light kit and it looks stunning. I absolutely love it. Epic Light kit from LeLightGo!
LeLightGo light kit makes the Loop Roller Coaster come alive!
Grandson loves it. Looks very cool.
Good instructions and easy to follow. The lights looks really nice. Recommend it highly.
Bring your LEGO to life with @lelightgo light kits ✨
What do you think? I am obsessed 😍
So many lights and nice effects. The best way to display is by lighting them up and they look beautiful day or night.
The Camaro is cool, but adding in the lights made it so much better! Very happy with the way it turned out!
Really impressed with this, the kit instructions were easy to follow and was fiddly but easy to put together. Has really made a feature out of this lovely piece. Recommend buying with remote too as I can change the light brightness or have some on some off which is fab! Customer support were also very helpful as I couldn't find the instructions and they sent them to me, thank you!
