The wires for the color changing lights out front of the castle could have been a little longer. The light kit really makes the castle look great.
Pretty impressive how they managed to figure out installation points with taking minimal pieces off the set permanently. The only problem is the wires came loose on the power supply, so I had to reconnect them myself. Other than that, it’s a really nice product. My kid loves it.
Installed it while building the car. It worked fine, and although it took some time, it was worth it. The car looks great with the light kit. The only thing is that the photos in the instructions are a bit dark and low quality, making it a bit difficult to see the details.
The set looks amazing now and is definitely worth it. However the way the ship is built in the instruction is different than the way LEGO wants you to build it. I didn’t know if was on purpose or not but either way people need to know that it is different. (Look at photo) in the photo you can see the tire piece is flipped to the other side. I hope I explained it well enough.
The Iron Man Armory is a comparatively small set which is lit up beautifully. Every chamber has a white spotlight, the aisle and the satellite dish are blue and even the jetpack shines in orange.
A true gem on my shelf.
First of all - it looks great!
Second, it takes some pulling wires through the model to make it work, that is the more complicated one I have tried.
Third, at least at two positions in the manual, it is shown that we need to pull wires through holes that are already filled up. For me it meant that two lights broke and I had to errortrace the entire setup, which meant that I (my fault) broke a USB-cable.
Fourth - the wires and plugs are tiny and fragile so be careful if you have big hands like me.
Fifth - my batterybox and one expansion board was broken :-(
Sixth - the support was fast and very supportive and I soon had replacements :-)
If possible, I would wish I could buy components by them self, either to enhanc the models, to make my own - or to replace something I might break.
N.B. The picture and video is taken in a completely dark room - the set really lights up and look fantastic.
These sets for the Ford Mustang are a really good add on .. they make it stand out even more .. many thanks to the seller for these as shopped with them many times and haven’t been disappointed with any .. cheers
I love the way this looks with all the lights on and it was very easy to put the lights on. I give it 5 stars. So for anyone that plans on buying light. To make life easy make sure you have the whole set put together first then go back and put on the lights. And to hide all the wires just buy the stand
Our master plan for the Hogwarts castle was to create a detailed display, including a painted background and lighting. I looked at several different light sets but landed on the Lightailing. I just finished the installation and I am pleased overall, although it was a lot more challenging than I expected. Like others have said, the wires are incredibly fragile. Several lights broke during installation. Delivery took about a month, and there was a substantial online sale less than a week after ordering that I missed out on. Once the lights arrived, I spent around 8 hours on installation.
Placement of lights
Tower lights are too bright
Flashing "disco" lights
Wires break easily
The final strand of lights was different than in the video, causing rework
Printed instructions were not helpful
Finished installing my lights in the Lego Mini Cooper .. they add great detail to my Lego Mini and all the other light kits I’ve had from lightailing too I’ve had over the years
After waiting a long time for arrival, at last! They finally arrived! And wow! What an awesome set! The lights are very bright, and the wires are well hidden. It can be a bit difficult to install and you have to be very careful with the delicate wires, but with patients, this set will reward you greatly! Thank you lightailing for this amazing set!
Its a nice light kit for storing a model. Only i play sometimes with the models and the cabele between the truck and trailer is to short for playing. En no option to disconnect the cable between the truck and trailer.
Have light from here in everything and am super satisfied :) but a little sorry I do not have the lego figure and the billboards :) but will come one day. Love from Denmark.
A nice relatively small kit. It did involve a bit of deconstruction of the Lego kit but over all I was happy with the final result. I took a video of the installation which can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AUpTNKaX7uc&t=3s
Great light set. Upgrades the Lego set super. The color changing roof is really eye catching. All parts fit well. Instructions are easy to understand, but could be a little bigger.
Quite a bit of fiddling BUT!
Well worth the effort. You get a "Spell-binding" effect that blows away the most discerning LEGO critic.
I ordered 5 kits from lightailing including the Pet Shop. Of all 5 sets, there was a single bad strand in the Pet Shop kit. I emailed support, they responded promptly and got a new strand in the mail right away. I will definitely buy from Lightailing again.
I would have like to see better instructions. As I broke one of the wires trying to put it together. Awesome concept though!
The manuals was a little tricky to understand but the picture was good enough so i managed to get the lights installed fairy easy. And wow, the lights turns my buildings to life. I am so pleased so i am going to order more lights
These are fantastic, I've run them through out my entire Winter village display at Brickvention using the usb connection, they worked the entire time and looked incredible.
Really worth getting.
Ordered the lightning set for thé friends lego set , for my girlfriends christmas. Its amazing! Good quality , good installations explications., top product!
I could not be happier with the results of this light kit. It is the first once that I have ever installed and was Very impressed by the effect of it and how much better the set looked after. The instructions were very easy to follow. I will say the only difficult part was how small the connections and actually led lights are but that is a small thing to get past with how amazing the car looked after installed.
I have 8 Lego Architecture sets in my living room, and I wanted to try a first lightailing kit to realize the difficulty of mounting it and the effect rendered if I succeeded. Even if the instructions sometimes lack clarity (the images are too small, why not make a pdf guide with large pictures ?), I arrived with patience at the ending step, and I am not disappointed at all ! I will order kits for my other sets :)
