Very easy to install! Totally changes the dynamics of your piece and really helps bring them from “just another Lego collectible” to a real show piece! Would recommend getting the sound kit as well.
Full disclosure, this was my first light kit, so I had trouble putting it in. A lot of the work installing the kit goes towards making sure the wires for the lights are hidden inside the set, and it can be very frustrating to install because the parts are very small. Took me a few hours to finish the lights.
However, the ending result is worth it. I posted my ECTO-1 with the light kit on the official LEGO subreddit and the light kit got very positive feedback from over 8000 people, some people told me they wanted to buy LeLightGo’s lights for their ECTO-1.
Even though they include a power bank, I like how the central lighting chip can be connected to a usb micro so you can keep the lights on constantly. I recommend doing this by picking up a micro usb cord from your collection or from Amazon, hooking it up to the light kit, and plugging it in to the wall.
Overall, I recommend this kit if you want to take the ECTO-1 to the next level. You have to really love this set to put in the time, effort, and money to install this kit. However, If you’re going to pick this up, just go with the light kit and ditch the sound. The day after I installed the kit, the sound box crapped out. I personally don’t think it adds too much anyway, as I mainly use my ECTO-1 set as a $400 night light.
We are so grateful for your kind words. Thanks for sharing your review with us and the community.
