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 :)
Great LED-Kit for the LEGO-Set "Friends Central Perk"
12 LEDs illuminate the scene in a wunderful cosy atmosphere.
Good manual; easy to assemble; quality materials.
The kit is finally ready only after assembled the great lights!
I've already ligtened up my Batmobil 70905 with an Kit from lightailing. For the Mustang I've bought this one from BRIKSMAX and i was very mazed how different it is compared to the lightailing ones. The LED's from Briksmax are all seperade wired and plug connected where lighttailing sends you an amazing all in one cable tree.
To wire up the Mustang is pretty easy and fun. I alsolike that you can put thebattery box on the backseat to be still able to play with it without having to worry about loose wires or a huge battery box to nurse.
The result is astonishing and I'm very pleased with the result and building experience.
First, the PROS:
- Full-fledged set with everything included: pre-installed LED lights, USB connectors and a battery pack (batteries not included duh).
- Excellent instructions. Step-by-step with photos of how to carefully take apart the set and install the lights.
- Beautiful lighting color design, with one exception (see below)
- Real LEGO pieces.
- Great price.
- Good customer service.
- Can we talk about the disco lights? One LED and the stand-alone "mood" lights are flashing. Why? This adds nothing to the design and is in fact quite distracting. I would rather have a slow color change than the flash-flash-flash. Luckily, it is only one small LED and the stand-alones mood lights which don't need to be connected at all.
- Tiny wires WILL get snapped no matter how carefully you try. However, a little solder and a gentle hand can bring them back to life.
- In a couple of places, it was hard to understand from the photos exactly where a wire was supposed to be laid. In those cases, it would have been good to have a close-up.
- Absolutely beautiful! This set really makes the Hogwarts Castle come alive. The lights are placed in excellent locations with nice color choices to highlight the set. A great price for everything, considering how extensive the Castle is. The flashing disco lights on a couple of the places are not appropriate, and it would be great to see them changed in future sets.
I have now several of these kits and they really are great. Also fantastic customer service!
Ordered the kit and came quickly in a nice box with detailed instructions (very much like the original Lego instructions for the model) and all went together great and looks amazing, several of my friends want to get kits for their models now. Goes well with the other Ecto 1 kit I also bought.

Teilweise zu kurze Kabel Abstände aber sonst ein tolles Set. Deshalb nur 4 von 5 Sternen.
What's more fun than building lego sets? Lighting them up to amaze your friends! This set works well with all the play features of the car and is an excellent addition to the collection. I hope one day to light all of my car collection, but for now I just have the DB5 and the VW Camper sets, then I hope I can plug them all into one source and flick a switch to an amazing setup!
