Important things to note:

Laying cables in between and underneath bricks

Cables can fit in between and underneath LEGO® bricks, plates, and tiles providing they are laid correctly between the LEGO® studs. Do NOT forcefully join LEGO® together around cables; instead ensure they are laying comfortably in between each stud.

CAUTION: Forcing LEGO® to connect over a cable can result in damaging the cable and light.

Connecting cable connectors to Expansion Boards

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports of Expansion Boards. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the expansion board facing up, look for the soldered “=” symbol on the left side of the port. The connector side with the wires exposed should be facing toward the soldered “=” symbol as you insert into the port. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, do not force it.

Incorrectly inserting the connector can can result in bent pins inside the port or possible overheating of the expansion board when connected.

 

Connecting cable connectors to Strip Lights

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports on the Strip Lights. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the Strip Light facing up, ensure the side of the connector with the wires exposed is facing down. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, don’t force it. Doing so will damage the plug and the connector.

Connecting Micro Cable connectors to Micro Expansion Board Ports

Take extra care when inserting the micro connectors to micro ports of Micro Expansion Boards. Connecting Micro Bit Lights to Micro Expansion Boards is similar to connecting lights and cables to Strip Lights. With the expansion board facing up, ensure the side of the connector with the wires exposed is facing down. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, do not force it. Use your fingernail to push the plastic part of the connector to the micro port.

 

Installing Bit Lights under LEGO® bricks and plates.

When installing Bit Lights under LEGO® pieces, ensure they are placed the correct way up (Yellow LED component exposed). You can either place them directly on top of LEGO® studs or in between.

 


OK, Let’s Begin!

 

Installing lights to the Disney Train Station

1.) We will first install lights to the train station starting with all the lamps at the front. First disconnect the station sign, then using your LEGO Removal Tool, create a gap just above the grey plates with front studs.

 

 

Disconnect the lamps on either side of the front door, then disassemble them as per below.

 

 

2.) Take a White 15cm Bit Light and with the cable facing the handle, place it directly over the black stud. Secure the Bit Light in place by reconnecting the trans clear minifig head over the top. Thread the cable down the space of the handle and pull it all the way out from underneath.

 

Repeat this step to install another White 15cm Bit Light to the other lamp.

 

 

3.) Reconnect both lamps to the front of the station, then thread thread both of the lamp cables through the gap we created earlier. Turn the set around to the back and pull the Bit Light cables all the way out. Ensure the cables are laid in between studs of the bottom of the gap as shown in the last image example.

 

Connect both of the Bit Light cables to a 12-Port Expansion Board. Take a USB Power Cable and connect it to the left port on the expansion board. Connect the USB Connector side to a USB Power Bank or wall adaptor (sold separately) and turn it ON to test the front lights are working OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

 

4.) Disconnect the lamp on the right side of the station via the black technic pin. Turn the set around and disconnect the top floor of the left side by pushing your finger up underneath the tan plate.

 

Turn the set back around to the front and using your LEGO Removal Tool, create a gap in between the light grey plates just above where we disconnected the lamp.

 

Take a White 30cm Bit Light and carefully bend the LED up as shown below. With the cable facing the back, hook the LED inside the lamp. Bring the the technic pin slightly out, then bring the Bit Light cable up and wind it around the lamp post. Push the technic pin back in toward the front and pull the cable inside the technic pin slot. Turn the technic pin to the left or right to secure the cable in place.

 

 

5.) Thread the Bit Light cable through the gap we created, then reconnect the lamp to the front. Ensure the cable is laid in between studs of the grey plates above.

 

Turn the set around to the back and pull the Bit Light all the way out. Bring the cable inside the station and toward the right, then connect it to the 12-Port Expansion Board. Turn the power ON to test the front lamps are working OK.

 

Reconnect the two grey plate sections to close up the gap above the lamp.

 

 

6.) We will now light up the two lamps on the left corner of the station. First disconnect these two lamps, then using your LEGO Removal Tool, create a gap underneath the tan plates.

 

Install another 2x White 30cm Bit Lights to the two lamps, applying the same method used to install the lamps in previous steps.

 

 

7.) Take the lamp for the left side of the station and thread the cable through the gap. From the back of the station, pull the cable out, then securely reconnect the lamp ensuring the cable is laid in between the studs above.

 

 

Repeat this process to reconnect the other lamp while threading the cable through to the inside of the station.

 

 

8.) Close up the gaps by reconnecting sections back together, then turn the set back around to the back and thread both Bit Light cables through to the middle sections. Connect both of them to the 12-Port Expansion Board. Turn ON the power to test all the front lamps are working OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

Close up the gap from the front of the set, then reconnect the Disney Train Station sign.

 

 

9.) We will now light up the two pillar lamps on the back of the station. First disconnect the two lamps, then create a gap just underneath the plates with handles as shown below.

 

Disassemble the two lamps as shown below, then take a White 15cm Bit Light and thread the connector side of the cable through the bottom (larger hole) of one of the trans clear round bricks. Before threading the Bit Light all the way through, carefully bend the LED so that it is facing up. Reconnect the black plate with clip followed by the round plate at the top.

 

Repeat this step to install another White 15cm Bit Light to the other lamp.

 

 

10.) Thread each of the lamp cables through the gaps on the pillars. Pull the cables all the way out from behind before reconnecting the lamps. Bring both cables towards the 12-port expansion board.

 

Connect both Bit Light cables to the 12-Port Expansion Board (right lamp to the far right port, and left lamp to the left port), then turn ON the power to test the pillar lamps are working OK.

 

 

11.) Using the LEGO Removal Tool, create a gap on the left wall just above red angled brick.

 

Take 5cm Connecting Cable and a 15cm Connecting Cable and connect them both to the 12-Port Expansion Board. Take the USB Power Cable and feed it behind the left pillar and over to the left side. Thread the USB cable through the gap we just created, ensuring the cable is laid in between studs of the red angled brick.

 

 

12.) Take the second floor section we removed earlier in step 4 and place it onto it’s back.

 

Take a Warm White Strip Light and using it’s adhesive backing, stick it to the bottom of a provided LEGO Plate 1×6.

 

Take the 15cm Connecting Cables we connected to the expansion board earlier and bring it behind the pillar and over to the left side.  Connect the cable to Strip Light’s right port, then take a new 15cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the strip light’s left port.

 

Using the 1×6 plate, mount the strip light underneath the top floor section in the below position. Ensure the connecting cable  from the 12-port expansion board is on the right side.

 

 

13.) Locate the White 30cm Bit Light cable from the front right lamp and lay it in between studs of the red angled brick, then place the second level section over the top. Do not securely reconnect the second level floor just yet.

 

Slip the 15cm Connecting Cable through the gap on the left wall and place it in between the studs next to where the USB power cable is laid. Pull the 15cm cable all the way out, then securely reconnect the second level floor.

 

 

14.) Take a new Warm White Strip Light and using it’s adhesive backing, stick it to a provided LEGO Plate 1×6. Locate the other end of the 5cm Connecting Cable connected to the 12-port expansion board, and connect it to the strip light’s left port. Take a new 15cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the strip light’s right port.

 

 

15.) Stick 3x Adhesive Squares to the back of the 12-Port Expansion Board, then mount the board underneath the top floor in the following position. The cables should be facing away from you and towards the inside of the station.

 

To prevent the USB Power Cable from dangling down, pull the cable all the way out the left side, then reconnect the top floor wall section to close up the gap and secure the cable down.

 

Locate any other dangling cables and pull them to the left before securing them to the ceiling using a provided LEGO Plate 1×2.

 

 

14.) Take the two Bit Light cables from the front left corner lamps and pull them to the right, then mount the Strip Light to the roof (via the 1×6 plate) over any other dangling cables in the following position. Check to ensure there are no dangling cables underneath the two strip lights, then close up the gaps below the lamps on the pillars. Turn ON the power to test the lights are working OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

 

15.) Use your LEGO Removal Tool to disconnect the following pieces sections on the top right side of the station.

 

Disconnect the chandelier section via the technic pin, then disconnect the chair from the top floor.

 

Turn the set around to the front corner and disconnect the top floor with front window section.

 

 

16.) Locate the two Bit Light cables from the front corner lamps as well as the other end of the 15cm Connecting Cable from the 12-port Expansion Board. From the space we created above the bottom floor, pull the bit light cables up so they aren’t dangling down from the top, then thread the 15cm Connecting Cable up to the second floor and connect it to the larger port on a Micro 4-Port Expansion Board.

 

Disconnect the following two tiles with studs from the second floor, then pull the two bit light cables up and lay them in between the black studs. Reconnect the two tiles with studs, then check to ensure there are no more dangling cables.

 

 

17.) Take the chandelier and disassemble it as shown below:

 

Take a White 15cm Micro Bit Light and place the LED facing down over the top of one of the trans clear minifig heads. Secure the Micro Bit Light in place by reconnecting a brown plate with clip.

 

18.) Follow the same method used in previous step to install another 3x White 15cm Micro Bit Lights to the remaining three lamps, then reconnect each one to the chandelier ensuring the cables are facing the inside, and all laid out together at one side.

 

Spin the chandelier around so the cables are facing the inside of the station, then reconnect the chandelier via the grey technic pin. Bring all four cables up to the top and connect them to the Micro Expansion Board. Turn ON the power to test the chandelier micro bit lights are working OK.

 

 

19.) Take a 30cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the other large port on the Micro Expansion Board, then stick 2x Adhesive Squares to the back of the board and mount it to the right side in the following position.

 

Bring the micro bit light cables over to the back and secure them underneath the following tiles ensuring you first lay them in between studs underneath. Bring the 30cm Cable over and secure it on the side of the tile underneath.

 

To ensure there is no more excess cable from the 30cm cable dangling down, pull up any excess cable and secure it underneath the following 2×4 plate ensuring it is laid in between studs.

 

 

20.) Reconnect the second floor sections as well as the chair, then disconnect the roof using your LEGO Removal Tool.

 

Continue to disconnect the following sections on the top floor.

 

Bring the 30cm Cable up to the top floor and lay it around the following studs, then reconnect the brown angled bricks over the top. Bring the cable up to the top of the set and connect it to a new Micro 4-Port Expansion Board (large port).

 

 

21.) Turn the set around to the front left corner. Disconnect the three window roof sections via the technic pins as shown below, followed by the long bricks on top to allow us to remove the three window sections.

 

 

22.) Take one of the window sections and disconnect the following pieces from the top. Take a White 15cm Micro Bit Light and split the brown and black cable as shown below.

 

With the LED facing down and cable facing the back, place the bit light over the green stud of the window, with a cable on either side. Secure the Micro Bit Light in place by reconnecting the two arched pieces.

 

Bring the cable over the arched pieces, then reconnect the remaining section. Reconnect this window section to the far left side of the station.

 

 

23.) Repeat the previous step to install another 2x White 15cm Micro Bit Lights to the other two window sections, then reconnect each one to the left side of the station.

 

Connect the three Micro Bit Lights to the Micro Expansion Board on the top of the station, then turn ON the power to test the window lights are all working OK.

 

 

24.) Lay the cable from the front window the wall behind and in between studs, then do the same for the two window cables on the left side. Secure them down by reconnecting both the long bricks over the top. Before reconnecting the long brick over the side with two windows, secure the 30cm connecting cable by pulling it up and laying it around the brown stud underneath. This will help hide the cable and prevent it from being seen when looking inside the room.

 

Reconnect the window roof sections via the technic pins.

 

 

25.) Take a 5cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the other large port on the Micro Expansion Board. Take a Warm White Strip Light and using it’s adhesive backing, stick it to the base of another provided Plate 1×6.

Installing Bit Lights under LEGO® bricks and plates.

When installing Bit Lights under LEGO® pieces, ensure they are placed the correct way up (Yellow LED component exposed). You can either place them directly on top of LEGO® studs or in between.

 


OK, Let’s Begin!

 

1.) The first section we will light up are the main characters on their “Stranger Things” platform. First, disconnect Mike, then disassemble his flash light.

 

Take a White 15cm Bit Light and place it over the hilt’s stud. Secure it in place by reconnecting the trans clear round plate 1×1 over the top. Fold the Bit Light cable down toward the bottom of the hilt, then reconnect it to Mike’s hand ensuring the cable is also clipped inside. Reconnect Mike to the platform.

 

 

2.) Disconnect Lucas, then disassemble his flash light.

 

Take a White 15cm Bit Light and with the cable facing the bottom of the flash light hilt, place it over the hilt’s stud. Since we can’t reconnect the trans clear tile over the bit light, discard this piece and connect a provided Trans clear Round Plate 1×1 over the top to secure the light in place. Wind the Bit Light cable behind the flash light, then reconnect it to Lucas’ hand ensuring the cable is also clipped inside. Reconnect Lucas to the platform.

 

 

3.) Turn the platform around, then connect the two Bit Light cables to a 6-Port Expansion Board. Take a Flat Battery Pack and insert 2x NEW CR2032 Batteries. Connect the battery pack cable to the expansion board and turn it ON to test the flashlights are working OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

 

4.) Use 2x Adhesive Squares to mount the expansion board behind the bottom of the platform, then use another 2x Adhesive Squares to mount the flat battery pack (with cable facing the left) on the back of the Stranger Things board.

 

Neaten up the excess cable by grouping them together and twisting/folding them around each other into a neat bunch.

 

Secure the two cables down to the back of the platform, using sticky tape. This now completes installation for this section.

 

If you wish to tether the power for the flash lights to the main light kit for the house rather than using batteries, connect the provided 50cm Connecting Cable to a spare port on the expansion board. You can connect the other end of the cable to the main circuit later on.

 

 

5.) We will now light up Chief Hopper’s police car. First disconnect the car from the front of the set, then disconnect the roof and sections around the front to enable us to remove the head light sections.

Reconnect the pieces we removed earlier surrounding the front of the car.

 

 

8.) Turn the car around to the rear side and pull the side windows out from each side, then disconnect the following pieces to enable us to disconnect the two tail light sections as shown below:

 

 

9.) Disconnect and discard the two trans red tiles from the tail lights, then take a White 15cm Bit Light and thread the connector end through the front of one of the tan coloured bricks. Pull the cable all the way out from the back of the brick, then slightly bend the Bit Light so that it sits flat against the edge of the front of the brick. Secure the light in place by connecting a provided Trans Red Plate 1×1 over the top.

 

Reconnect the tail light section to the left side of the back of the car. Ensure you bring the cable to the right side, laying it behind the brick as shown below.

 

Repeat this step to install another White 15cm Bit Light to the right tail light, securing it in place with another provided Trans Red Plate 1×1. Ensure you bring the cable to the left side, behind the brick as you reconnect it to the right side of the back of the car.

 

 

10.) Take a 6-Port Expansion Board and connect the two head light cables as well as the two tail light cables to it. Take a Flat Battery Pack and insert 2x NEW CR2032 Batteries to it. Connect the battery pack cable to the 6-Port Expansion Board, then turn the battery pack ON to test the head and tail lights are working OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

 

11.) Flip the car over and mount the Flat Battery Pack underneath the car towards the back using 2x Adhesive Squares. Ensure the battery pack switch is facing the right side of the car.

 

Turn the car back over and disconnect the following number plate section. Pull the battery pack all the way up inside the car and lay it down in between studs toward the middle before reconnecting the section over the top as shown below:

 

Reconnect the following piece, then neaten up the cabling by grouping all the cables and folding and twisting them around each other a few times, forming a neat bunch.

 

 

12.) Take a 5cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the remaining port on the 6-Port Expansion Board. Connect the other end of the cable to the IN port (+5V) on the Multi Effects Board (side with 1 port)

 

Reconnect (and fold in) the following pieces and sections we removed earlier, then place all the components in the back area as shown below:

 

 

13.) Take the roof of the car and disconnect the 1×6 plate as well as the trans blue and trans red tiles from it.

 

Take a White 15cm Bit Light and with the cable facing forward, place it in between the two left studs. Secure the light in place by reconnecting the trans blue tile over the top, then repeat this step to install another White 15cm Bit Light underneath the trans red tile.

 

 

14.) Reconnect the plate to the roof plate, then connect the two roof lights to the Multi Effects Board.

 

Turn the Battery Pack ON and configure the Multi Effects Board to use the “emergency” effect by setting the switch on the effects board to the middle setting. You can adjust the speed of the effect by turning the wheel to the left or to the right (slower or faster).

 

Place the Multi Effects Board back inside the back of the car, then place the roof on top of the car. Group the two cables from the roof together and fold/twist them around each other into a neat bunch to eliminate excess cable. Place the bunched up cables inside before securely reconnecting the roof.

 

This completes installation of the lights for Chief Hoppers car.

 

The Police Car lights are currently powered independently via the Flat Battery Pack. If you wish to avoid the battery route, the car lights can be tethered to the house lights later on. Simply swap out the Flat Battery Pack with a provided 15cm Connecting Cable. Leave the other end of it disconnected as we will connect this to the right side of the house at a later stage.

 

 

15.) We will now install lights to the house. First, turn the set around to the back side and using your LEGO removal tool, carefully disconnect the roof section at the following two positions as shown below.

 

Turn the set back around to the front, as we will first install lights to the trees, starting with the tree on the right side. We will be threading each Bit Light through the holes in the tree leaf pieces. First, take a Green 30cm Bit Light and slightly bend the bit light into a U shape toward the connector end of the cable. Thread the connector end through the hole of the following leaf piece as shown below, then pull the cable all the way down from underneath.

 

Flatten the Bit Light against the top of the leaf hole so that it sits flat and that the LED is facing directly up, then thread the cable through the space above, pulling it out from the other side. Secure the light in place by disconnecting the dark green tile and laying the cable down underneath it, before reconnecting the tile over the top.

 

 

16.) Take another Green 30cm Bit Light and slightly bend the connector end of the cable into a U shape. Thread the cable through the hole of the light green leaf piece in the centre, pulling it all the way out from underneath. Ensure the Bit Light’s LED is facing forward as shown below.

 

Bring the cable behind and over the branch on the right side.

 

 

17.) Turn the set around to the back so we can continue installing another two lights to the back side of the tree. Take another Green 30cm Bit Light and bend the connector end of the cable into a U shape. Thread the cable through the hole on the right leaf piece, pulling it all the way out from underneath.

 

Flatten the Bit Light so that it sits flat against the top of the hole and LED is facing directly up, then bring both front and back cables across to the left side and secure them underneath the following dark brown plate. Ensure the cables are laid across in between studs before reconnecting the dark brown plate over the top.

 

 

18.) Bend the dark green leaf piece on the left side down slightly so we can access the hole on the top. Take another Green 30cm Bit Light and slightly bend the connector end of the cable into a U shape. Thread the cable through the hole on the dark green leaf piece, pulling it all the way out from underneath as shown below:

 

Flatten the Bit Light so that it sits flat against the top of the hole and the LED is facing up, then push up the leaf piece back to it’s original position. Bring the cable across to the right and lay it in between studs underneath the dark brown plate as shown below (around the top stud):

 

Bring the four cables  down the left side of the tree trunk, then bring them across to the right side, laying them in between studs underneath the following dark brown angled plate.

Important things to note:

Laying cables in between and underneath bricks

Cables can fit in between and underneath LEGO® bricks, plates, and tiles providing they are laid correctly between the LEGO® studs. Do NOT forcefully join LEGO® together around cables; instead ensure they are laying comfortably in between each stud.

CAUTION: Forcing LEGO® to connect over a cable can result in damaging the cable and light.

Connecting cable connectors to Expansion Boards

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports of Expansion Boards. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the expansion board facing up, look for the soldered “=” symbol on the left side of the port. The connector side with the wires exposed should be facing toward the soldered “=” symbol as you insert into the port. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, do not force it.

Incorrectly inserting the connector can can result in bent pins inside the port or possible overheating of the expansion board when connected.

 

Connecting cable connectors to Strip Lights

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports on the Strip Lights. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the Strip Light facing up, ensure the side of the connector with the wires exposed is facing down. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, don’t force it. Doing so will damage the plug and the connector.

Connecting Micro Cable connectors to Micro Expansion Board Ports

Take extra care when inserting the micro connectors to micro ports of Micro Expansion Boards. Connecting Micro Bit Lights to Micro Expansion Boards is similar to connecting lights and cables to Strip Lights. With the expansion board facing up, ensure the side of the connector with the wires exposed is facing down. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, do not force it. Use your fingernail to push the plastic part of the connector to the micro port.

 

Installing Bit Lights under LEGO® bricks and plates.

When installing Bit Lights under LEGO® pieces, ensure they are placed the correct way up (Yellow LED component exposed). You can either place them directly on top of LEGO® studs or in between.

 


OK, Let’s Begin!

 

1.) We will first install the left stage light. Start by disconnecting the curved plate above it, then remove the stage light via the technic 1×2 brick. Disassemble the stage light as shown below:

 

Take a Warm White 30cm Large Bit Light and thread the connector end of the cable through the bottom of the light grey round plate. Thread it all the way through, then carefully bend the LED so that it sits flat against the edge of the hole.

 

Flip the light grey round plate around and lay the cable in between studs. Reconnect it to the stage light section, ensuring the cable is facing the black technic 1×2 brick, then reconnect the trans clear 2×2 plate with rounded bottom over the top.

 

 

2.) Reconnect the stage light to the set but first, lay the Bit Light cable in between the two studs underneath the black technic brick. Reconnect the black curved plate on top.

 

Turn the set around to the left side and connect the Bit Light to a 6-Port Expansion Board. Take the AA Battery Pack and insert 3x NEW AA Batteries to it. Connect the battery pack cable to the 6-Port Expansion Board, then turn it ON to test the stage light is working OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

 

3.) We will now install lights to the wall lamps. First, disconnect the following dark green tiles from the top of the walls, then disconnect the following wall sections to allow us to disconnect the bricks with clips that are holding the lamps.

 

Disassemble one of the wall lamp sections as shown below, then take a White 15cm Micro Bit Light and place the led inside one of the gold plates with shafts. Ensuring the LED is facing up, secure the Bit Light in place by reconnecting the gold plate with open stud. If you look carefully inside, the LED should be visible and in the middle of the hole.

 

Reconnect the trans clear piece, then lay the cable in between the clip of the 1×1 brick it connects to before reconnecting the lamp to it.

 

Reconnect the lamp to the wall ensuring you first lay the cable to the side of the stud it connects on top of.

 

 

4.) Repeat the previous step to install another White 15cm Micro Bit Light to the other lamp section before reconnecting it to the wall.

 

 

5.) Turn the set around and connect the two Micro Bit Lights to a Micro 4-Port Expansion Board.

 

Take a 5cm Connecting Cable and connect it to one of the larger ports on the micro expansion board. Connect the other end of the cable to the 6-Port Expansion Board to the right of it, then turn ON the AA Battery Pack to test the wall lamps are working OK.

 

 

6.) Reconnect the wall sections we removed, then disconnect the “service” sign section at the black pole. Disassemble this section as shown below:

 

Take a White 30cm Bit Light and thread the connector end of the cable through the bottom of the red round plate with open stud. Thread the cable all the way through, then reconnect the round plate to the brown plates ensuring the LED is facing diagonally down on the left side of the round red plate. We are positioning the LED this way, so that it will shine down onto Gunther’s section behind the cash register.

 

 

7.) Turn the sign section over so we can access underneath, then take another White 30cm Bit Light and with the cable facing away from you, place it in the centre of the front brown plate. Fold the cable down over the front of the brown plate, before reconnecting the “service” tile over the top. The LED is positioned in the centre so that it will shine directly down onto the cafe area.

 

Bring the cable from the first Bit Light over the top of the sign toward the back, then reconnect the arrow tile over the top. Flip the sign over onto it’s front, then take the two cables and twist them around each other 2-3 times at the left side to lock them in place. Reconnect the sign back to the set.

 

 

8.) Bring the cables underneath the black pole, then secure them both underneath the dark green tile behind ensuring they are both laid in between studs underneath.

 

Turn the set around so that we are facing the outside of the left wall, then bring the two cables down the top of the back wall, laying them in between the following studs. Secure the cables down by reconnecting the dark green tile.

 

 

9.) Connect both Bit Light cables to spare ports on the 6-Port Expansion Board, then turn ON the battery pack to test the Service sign lights are working OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

Before we reconnect all the dark green tiles, take the cable from the stage light and lay them around studs on the top of the wall. Secure them by reconnecting the dark green tiles over the top of the cable, one at a time.

 

 

10.) We will now install lights to the lamp in the corner. First disconnect the table with flowers, then disconnect the lamp from the corner and disassemble it as per below:

 

Take a White 15cm Micro Bit Light and carefully bend the LED slightly up, then place it inside the bottom of one of the gold round plates with open stud. Secure the LED in place by reconnecting one of the flame pieces. The LED should be secured in between the flame piece and gold plate as shown below. Ensuring the cable is facing the back, reconnect this section to the front of the lamp post.

 

 

11.) Repeat previous step to install another White 15cm Micro Bit Light to another fire section, then reconnect it to the lamp post ensuring the cable is laid behind.

 

Turn the lamp post over and install another 2x White 15cm Micro Bit Lights, then reconnect them to the lamp post ensuring the cables from the front two lights are laid in between the gaps on the curved gold brick underneath.

 

 

12.) We will need to remove sections of the wall in order for us to bring the lamp post light cables behind. Follow the below images to disconnect the following sections of the wall.

 

Reconnect the lamp post and lay the cables over the wall, then turn the set around to the back. Lay the two left cables in between studs, then lay the other two cables in between the next studs along. Reconnect all the wall sections we removed earlier.

 

 

13.) Connect the four Micro Bit Lights to a new Micro 4-Port Expansion Board. Take a 15cm Connecting Cable and connect it to one of the larger ports on the expansion board, then bring the cable around to the right side and connect it to one of the OUT ports on a Flicker Effects Board.

 

Take a 5cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the IN port on the Flicker Effects Board. Connect the other end of the cable to one of the larger ports on the other Micro 4-Port Expansion Board to the right. Turn ON the battery pack to test the lamp lights are working and flickering OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

 

14.) Take 2x Adhesive Squares and stick them on the back of the Micro 4-Port Expansion Board we connected the lamp post lights to. Stick the expansion board to the bottom of the wall in the following position, then bring the four cables together and secure them to the wall using tape.

 

Lift the set up so we can access underneath, then secure the excess cables from the Micro Bit Lights underneath the following two black plates at the bottom of the set. Turn the set back around again and reconnect the table with flowers in front of the lamp post.

 

 

15.) Stick an Adhesive Square to the back of the Flicker Effects Board, and another 2x Adhesive Squares on the back of the other Micro 4-Port Expansion Board. Stick both boards inside the space at the bottom of the wall toward the right. Use your LEGO removal tool to push down the boards so they securely stick down to the studs.

 

 

16.) Turn the set around to the front entrance area and disconnect the roof section above the doors. Take a Warm White Strip Light and connect a 50cm Connecting Cable to the left port.

 

Take a 5cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the Strip Light’s right port, then using it’s adhesive backing, stick the strip light underneath the roof section in the following position ensuring the 5cm cable is on the right side.

 

 

17.) Take another Warm White Strip Light and connect the other end of the 5cm Cable from previous step to it’s left port. Take a new 5cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the strip light’s right port. Flip the roof section over and reconnect it to the set. Bring the 5cm cable and strip light through to the inside of the building by slipping it in between the wall sections.

 

Bring the other end of the 50cm Connecting Cable through to the inside by slipping it in between wall sections, then bring the cable across to the right, laying it in between the dark green and beige tiles. Bring the cable back outside, securing it in place by slipping it in between wall sections as shown below.

 

 

18.) Disconnect the following dark green tile to the right, then lay the cable in between studs before reconnecting the tile over the top.

 

Continue to bring the cable around to the right side and lay it in between studs underneath the following dark green tiles.

 

 

19.) Turn the set around to the far right side and secure the 50cm connecting cable underneath the following dark green tile on the left, then connect the cable to the remaining port on the 6-Port Expansion Board. Turn ON the battery pack to test the two strip lights we have connected are working OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

Tuck the remaining two expansion boards inside the space at the bottom of the wall, then neaten up all the cables and secure them to the wall using tape.

 

 

20.) From the inside of the set, locate the Warm White Strip Light and using it’s adhesive backing, stick it underneath the two beige coloured tiles just above the front entrance. Because the tiles are thin, the strip light will only partially stick underneath them.

 

Secure the 5cm Connecting cable from the left underneath the following square tile, then disconnect the two longer tiles above the entrance and hide the 50cm cable on the back side of the studs underneath. Reconnect the two tiles over the top.

 

Bring the 5cm Connecting Cable on the right over to the front side of the wall, slipping it in between the wall sections.

 

Turn the set around, then take the remaining Warm White Strip Light and connect the 5cm Connecting Cable we brought over to it’s right port. Leave the strip light as is for now as we will fix it underneath the roof section later.

 

 

21.)  We will now install the remaining large bit light to the stage light on the right side of the set. First disconnect the black curved plate on top, then disconnect and disassemble the stage light section as per below

 

Take a Warm White Large 30cm Bit Light and install it to this stage light following the same method we used to install the first stage light.

 

Reconnect the stage light ensuring you first thread the cable through the stage light post and lay it in between studs underneath the technic brick. Reconnect the black curved plate on top.

 

 

22.) Turn the set around and connect the Large Bit Light to the Strip Light. Turn ON the battery pack to test all the lights are working OK.

 

Using it’s adhesive backing, stick the strip light underneath the middle of the roof section as shown below.

 

 

23.) Wind up the large bit light cable 2-3 times at the stage light post so the cable locks and is prevented from dangling down, then fold the cable together and thread it through the back of the post. Pull the cable all the way out from the front side.

 

Thread the cable back through the following space, pulling it all the way out from the back side of the post. Repeat this process again then tie a knot in the cable around the pole to secure everything in place.

 

Fold and twist up the remaining excess cable, then tuck it inside the stage post. Finally, turn ON the Battery Pack to test all your lights are working OK.

 

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board).

Important things to note:

Laying cables in between and underneath bricks

Cables can fit in between and underneath LEGO® bricks, plates, and tiles providing they are laid correctly between the LEGO® studs. Do NOT forcefully join LEGO® together around cables; instead ensure they are laying comfortably in between each stud.

CAUTION: Forcing LEGO® to connect over a cable can result in damaging the cable and light.

Connecting cable connectors to Expansion Boards

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports of Expansion Boards. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the expansion board facing up, look for the soldered “=” symbol on the left side of the port. The connector side with the wires exposed should be facing toward the soldered “=” symbol as you insert into the port. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, do not force it.

Incorrectly inserting the connector can can result in bent pins inside the port or possible overheating of the expansion board when connected.

Connecting cable connectors to Strip Lights

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports on the Strip Lights. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the Strip Light facing up, ensure the side of the connector with the wires exposed is facing down. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, don’t force it. Doing so will damage the plug and the connector.

Installing Bit Lights under LEGO® bricks and plates.

When installing Bit Lights under LEGO® pieces, ensure they are placed the correct way up (Yellow LED component exposed). You can either place them directly on top of LEGO® studs or in between.

 


OK, Let’s Begin!

1.) We will start by first installing lights to the lava at the front of the castle. First disconnect the following black tiles at the front, then turn the castle around and remove the tie fighter. Gently press up against the following sections to lift up the entire top half of the castle.

 

Turn the base of the castle back around to the front and remove following sections:

 

 

2.) Take the following section and disconnect all the trans coloured pieces, then take 2x White 15cm Bit Lights and with the cables facing up, place the bit lights down in the following positions, in between studs. Secure the lights in place by reconnecting the trans coloured section over the top. Ensure both Bit Lights are secured directly in between studs as shown below:

 

 

3.) Take both cables and thread them through the space on the right, which leads to the inside of the castle. Pull the cables all the way out from the inside, then reconnect the lava section. Ensure both cables are neatly laid along the right of the following light grey stud.

 

 

4.) Take another White 15cm Bit Light and with the other end of the cable facing the right, place the bit light in between the two grey studs. Ensuring the cable is laid toward the right around the side closest to the front, secure the bit light in place by reconnecting the trans orange wall piece over the top.

It is very important that the cable is laid on the side of the grey stud closest to the front. This will prevent the cable from snapping later on when the pieces are reconnected on top.

 

Take the other end of the Bit Light cable and thread it through the space on the right, then pull it all the way out from the inside of the castle.

 

Reconnect the two dark grey wall sections starting with the one on the right. Ensure the three cables are laid around the far left stud before reconnecting the left wall section over the top.

 

 

5.) Take your AA Battery Pack and insert 3x AA Batteries to it. Connect the battery pack cable to a 6-Port Expansion Board, then connect the three bit light cables to it. Turn the battery pack ON to test that all three lights are working OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

 

6.) Take the following section we removed earlier and disconnect the light grey plate from underneath. Disconnect the trans orange section, then reconnect the light grey plate to the front of the castle.

 

Take 2x White 15cm Bit Lights and with the cables facing the back, place them over the two trans orange round tiles. Ensuring both cables are laid in between the studs in the centre, reconnect the trans orange section over the top to secure them in place.

Reconnect the section we removed the light grey plate from earlier, ensuring the cables are first laid in between studs.

 

Continue to reconnect surrounding sections we removed in step 1.

 

 

7.) From the inside of the castle, connect the two bit light cables we just installed to the next ports along the 6-port expansion board, then turn ON the battery Pack to test all the lava lights are working OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

Disconnect the AA Battery Pack, then take a Multi Effects Board and connect a 5cm Connecting Cable to one of the OUT ports (side with 2 ports). Connect the other end of the 5cm cable to the 6-port expansion board, then connect your AA Battery Pack to the IN port on the multi-effects board (side with 1 port)

 

 

8.) We will now configure the Multi Effects Board. Turn ON the AA Battery Pack and configure your desired effect by simply flicking the switch and adjusting the speed wheel. To configure the effect used in the Light My Bricks example, set the switch to the far right for ‘pulse’ effect. Turn the wheel all the way to left for the slowest speed.

 

 

Once you are happy with the chosen effect, disconnect the AA Battery Pack from the effects board. Take a new 5cm Connecting Cable and connect it to a new 6-Port Expansion Board. Connect the other end of the 5cm cable to the IN port on the Multi Effects Board (where we disconnected the battery pack from).

 

 

 

9.) Thread your AA Battery Pack through the space on the left side of the castle. Pull the cable in from the inside and connect it to the second 6-port expansion board we installed.

 

Neaten up cabling from the inside of the castle by grouping all the cables from the lava section and twisting/folding them together to form a neat bunch.

 

 

10.) We will now install a light to the pink diamond on the outside of the castle. First disconnect the wall section it sits on then disconnect the trans pink piece. Take a Pink 30cm Bit Light and with the cable facing behind, place it over the red stud. Secure the Bit Light in place by reconnecting the trans pink piece over the top.

 

Turn this section around to the back, then fold the cable down the back of the section.

 

Reconnect this section to the castle base, then thread the pink bit light cable through the same space we threaded the battery pack cable through. Pull it all the way out from the inside then connect it to the second 6-port expansion board we installed. Turn ON the battery pack to test the light is working OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

 

11.) We will now install a flashing light over to the right side of the castle. First disconnect the control panel section, then disconnect the trans green round tile. Take a Flashing White 30cm Bit Light and with the cable facing behind, place it over the black stud. Secure the light in place by connecting a provided Trans Green Round Plate 1×1 over the top.

 

Reconnect the control panel, then thread the other end of the cable through the following space. Pull it all the way out from the inside of the castle, then thread the cable in between the wall and control panel. Continue to thread it around the next wall section to lead back inside the castle.

 

Hide the cable by disconnecting the following section, then reconnecting it over the top of the cable as shown below.

 

Connect the flashing white bit light cable it to the next spare port on the 6-port expansion board, then turn ON the battery pack to test the light is working OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

 

12.) Disconnect the Battery Pack cable from the expansion board inside the castle, then neaten up cabling by grouping all cables connected to the second 6-port expansion board and twisting/folding around each other to form a neat bunch.

 

 

Lift up the section so we can access underneath, then secure the flashing white 30cm bit light cable underneath the following 2×2 plate.

 

Take a 15cm Connecting cable and connect one end to a spare port on the second 6-port Expansion Board.

 

 

 

13.) We will now install lights to the main section of the castle. First pull out the black technic pin on the right side, then disconnect the two walls by unclipping them from the bottom.

 

Remove the Darth Vader’s bacta tank, disconnect the top of it as shown below:

 

 

14.) Take a Cool White 30cm Bit Light and with the led facing down and cable laid behind, place if over the top of the tank, then secure it in place by reconnecting the top section. If you look up from the front of the tank, you should be able to see the Bit Light facing down.

 

Turn the tank around to the back and fold the cable down and secure it underneath the black angled brick at the bottom.

 

Reconnect the bacta tank then thread the cable behind and out the right side of this section.

 

 

15.) Remove the Darth Sidious hologram from the level above and disassemble it as shown below:

 

Take another Cool White 30cm Bit Light and place it over the black base’s stud. Secure the bit light in place by connecting a provided Trans Light Blue Round Plate 1×1 over the top, then reconnect the hologram piece ensuring the cable is facing the back.

 

Reconnect this section back to the castle, then lay the cable behind Darth Vader’s throne and around to the right.

 

 

16.) Take both ends of the Cool White Bit Light cables and connect each to one of the OUT ports on a Flicker effects Board

 

Secure both cables underneath the following light grey plate with clip, then fold/twist the two cables around each other into a neat bunch as shown below:

 

Test the flickering lights by connecting your AA Battery Pack to the IN port on the Flicker Effects Board. Turn the battery pack on to see the bacta tank and hologram come to life.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light, expansion board or effects board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

 

17.) Disconnect the AA Battery Pack, then connect a 5cm Connecting Cable to the IN port on the flicker effects board. Connect the other end of the cable to a new 6-Port Expansion Board.

Important things to note:

Laying cables in between and underneath bricks

Cables can fit in between and underneath LEGO® bricks, plates, and tiles providing they are laid correctly between the LEGO® studs. Do NOT forcefully join LEGO® together around cables; instead ensure they are laying comfortably in between each stud.

CAUTION: Forcing LEGO® to connect over a cable can result in damaging the cable and light.

Connecting cable connectors to Expansion Boards

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports of Expansion Boards. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the expansion board facing up, look for the soldered “=” symbol on the left side of the port. The connector side with the wires exposed should be facing toward the soldered “=” symbol as you insert into the port. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, do not force it.

Incorrectly inserting the connector can can result in bent pins inside the port or possible overheating of the expansion board when connected.

Connecting cable connectors to Strip Lights

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports on the Strip Lights. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the Strip Light facing up, ensure the side of the connector with the wires exposed is facing down. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, don’t force it. Doing so will damage the plug and the connector.

Installing Bit Lights under LEGO® bricks and plates.

When installing Bit Lights under LEGO® pieces, ensure they are placed the correct way up (Yellow LED component exposed). You can either place them directly on top of LEGO® studs or in between.

 


OK, Let’s Begin!

1.) We will first light up the train station. First remove the train, then disconnect the bridge section and the following lamp sections by unclipping them from the wall.

 

 

2.) Disassemble the lamps as shown below, then take a White 30cm Bit Light and thread the connector end of the cable through the base (larger hole) of the trans yellow round brick. Thread it all the way in, then secure it in place by reconnecting the black clip on top. Ensure the LED on the bit light is facing the front of the brick.

 

Repeat this process to install another White 30cm Bit Light to the other lamp.

 

3.) Carefully disconnect the upper part of the wall so that it creates a gap where the lamps were connected to. Thread each lamp cable all the way through this space, then reconnect the lamp to the clip. Ensure the cables are laid neatly in between the studs as shown below:

 

Once the lamps are reconnected, carefully reconnect the upper wall section to close up the gap while ensuring the cables are laid neatly in between studs.

 

 

4.) Turn the station around to the back and fold down the cables against the wall so they run flat down the wall.

 

Secure the cables underneath the following bricks. First disconnect each brick, bring the cable inside, then reconnect the brick while ensuring the cable is laid in between studs. This will also eliminate unwanted cable from behind the set.

 

 

5.) Take a 6-Port Expansion Board and connect the two bit light cables to it. Take your AA Battery Pack and insert 3x AA Batteries to it. Connect the battery pack to the expansion board and turn it ON to test the lights we have installed so far are working OK.

Important things to note:

Laying cables in between and underneath bricks

Cables can fit in between and underneath LEGO® bricks, plates, and tiles providing they are laid correctly between the LEGO® studs. Do NOT forcefully join LEGO® together around cables; instead ensure they are laying comfortably in between each stud.

CAUTION: Forcing LEGO® to connect over a cable can result in damaging the cable and light.

Connecting cable connectors to Expansion Boards

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports of Expansion Boards. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the expansion board facing up, look for the soldered “=” symbol on the left side of the port. The connector side with the wires exposed should be facing toward the soldered “=” symbol as you insert into the port. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, do not force it.

Incorrectly inserting the connector can can result in bent pins inside the port or possible overheating of the expansion board when connected.

Connecting cable connectors to Strip Lights

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports on the Strip Lights. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the Strip Light facing up, ensure the side of the connector with the wires exposed is facing down. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, don’t force it. Doing so will damage the plug and the connector.

Installing Bit Lights under LEGO® bricks and plates.

When installing Bit Lights under LEGO® pieces, ensure they are placed the correct way up (Yellow LED component exposed). You can either place them directly on top of LEGO® studs or in between.

 


OK, Let’s Begin!

 

1.) We will install lights to the bottom rocket first. Start by disconnecting the bottom jet sections followed by the tail pieces as per below:

 

 

2.) Using the LEGO Removal tool, disconnect the following wall section from the bottom as shown below


Carefully press down at the following position to allow you to completely pull this section out.

 

3.) Repeat previous step to remove the wall section to the right

 

 

4.)Remove the section in the middle by lifting out sections using your finger as well as using the LEGO removal tool

 

5.) Use the LEGO Removal tool to disconnect the following sections to then allow us to remove the internal white wall section as well as the red pieces above and underneath

 

6.) Take the 5 jet sections and starting with one, disconnect the bottom half then take a White 30cm Bit Lightand thread the connector side of the cable down through the centre of the top of the jet (trans orange piece). Thread it all the way through until the Bit Light is right up against the edge of the trans orange piece.


Slightly bend the Bit Light on a 90 degree angle so that it sits flat, then secure it in place by connecting one of the provided Trans Orange Round Plate 1×1over the top


Reconnect the top half of the jet section back to the bottom half ensuring the cable from the Bit Light is tucked neatly underneath the dark grey bars.

Take caution when reconnecting to the bottom half and ensure there is enough cable slack between the jet section and bottom half for the technic bar to push against the cable as the two sections reconnect. If there is not enough cable slack, the technic bar will push the cable out and snap the cable.

 


7.)
Repeat previous step to install White 30cm Bit Lights to the other four Jet sections using more of the provided Trans Orange Round Plate 1×1

 

 

8.) Reconnect the bottom three jet sections back to the base of the rocket starting with the one in the centre. Ensure the cable from each jet light is laid toward the top centre as shown below:


9.)
 Take the wall section closest to the bottom and then reconnect this to the ship starting with the top part.


10.) 
Reconnect the Jet section that connects to the bottom of the wall section we just reconnected ensuring all cables are neatly laid towards the centre.

Flip the rocket over and then reconnect the remaining wall section by first reconnecting the top part then reconnect the remaining Jet section.

 

11.) Take 1x Flicker Effects Board and connect the two shortest Bit Light Cables to the OUT ports (There are 3 OUT ports in total).

12.) Take remaining three Bit Light cables and connect them to a 6-Port Expansion Board


13.) 
Take a 5cm Connecting Cable and connect one end to the 6-port Expansion Board and connect the other end to the remaining OUT port on the Flicker Effects Board.


14.) 
Take a Flat Battery Pack and insert 2x CR2032 Batteries to it and then connect the battery pack cable to the IN Port on the Flicker Effects Board

Turn the Battery Pack on and confirm all lights and effects are working OK

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

15.)  Eliminate excess cabling by grouping all the cables and twisting them around each other. Tuck everything in to the open middle section.


Reconnect remaining sections of the Rocket.


To turn On and OFF the lights, simply detach the middle section to access the Battery Pack.

16.) We will now proceed to lighting the middle section of the Saturn V. Using the LEGO Removal Tool, disconnect the following sections (two main and one centre section).

17.) Remove the internal walls

18.) Disconnect the five Jet sections

19.)Disassemble one of the Jets and then take a White 30cm Bit Light and then thread the connector side through the top of outer section. Thread it all the way through until the component is right up against the edge.


Carefully bend the Bit Light 90 degrees so that it now sits flat against the hole then secure it in place by reconnecting the Trans Orange Round Plate

Thread the cable through the piece that connects behind and then carefully reconnect the white bar securing all pieces together.

Take caution when reconnecting to the white bar and ensure there is enough cable slack between the jet section and white bar for the bar to push against the cable as the two pieces reconnect. If there is not enough cable slack, the white bar will push the cable out and snap the cable.

20.) Repeat previous step to install White 30cm Bit Lights to the other four Jet sections.

21.)Reconnect the five Jet sections to the base starting with the bottom ones, ensuring the cables for each light is laid neatly up the centre as shown below

22.) Turn the section over on it’s side and then pull all the cables up to the top section. Reconnect the bottom inside wall section to secure the cables in place.


23.)
 Take the the shortest two cables and connect them to the OUT ports on Flicker Effects Board


24.)
Connect the remaining three cables to a 6-Port Expansion Board 

Connect one end of a 5cm Connecting Cable to the 6-port Expansion Board and connect the other end to the remaining OUT port on the Flicker Effects Board


25.)
 Take a Flat Battery Pack and insert 2x CR2032 Batteries to it then connect the battery pack cable to the IN Port on the Flicker Effects Board. Turn the Battery Pack on and confirm all lights and effects are working OK

OK, Let’s Begin!

 

1.) First remove the bottle from the stand and disconnect the bottle top as well as top window sections to allow us to remove the ship.

 

 

2.) Remove the three masts from the ship, then disconnect the following sections around the front:

 

 

3.) Take a White 30cm Bit Light and thread the connector end of the cable through the gap of the brown clip on the back of the ship. Thread it all the way through until the Bit Light is up against the edge of the gap. Ensure the LED is facing up, then lay the cable down the side of the ship as shown below. Secure it in place by reconnecting the back section over the top. The Bit Light should be seen slightly peaking out from below the brown clip.

 

 

4.) Take another White 30cm Bit Light and slightly bend the wire down about 1cm from the top of the Bit Light as shown below. Hook the bit light over the following stud, then secure it in place by reconnecting the brown grill tile over the top.

 

Lay the cable down in between studs, then reconnect the side brown wall tile.

 

Repeat this process to install another White 30cm Bit Light to the left, securing it in place by reconnecting the brown tile over the top.

 

 

5.)  Before reconnecting the brown wall tile, slide in the 1×6 plate as shown below. You may need to slightly lift up the two bit lights to reconnect the plate back in place. Reconnect the brown wall tile by sliding it in and connecting it underneath, then reconnect the last remaining section to the back of the ship.

 

Reconnect the three masts then group the three cables together and twist/wind them around each other a few times at the top to lock them in place.

 

 

6.) Take the AA Battery Pack and insert 3x AA Batteries to it. Connect the battery pack cable to the first port on the 6-Port Expansion Board. Connect the three cables from the ship to the spare ports on the expansion board, then turn ON the battery pack to test the lights connected are working OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

Disconnect the three bit lights and battery pack from the expansion board, then continue to twist/wind the cables around each other all the way to the end so they all come together to form one larger cable.

 

 

7.) Take two trans light blue round plates from inside the bottle then take out a Blue 30cm Bit Light and place it directly over one of studs. Secure the Bit Light in place by reconnecting the other trans light blue round plate over the top as shown below:

 

Repeat this step to install another 5x Blue 30cm Bit Lights using more of the trans light blue round plates from inside the bottle to secure them in place.

 

Take the 8-Port Expansion Board and connect the AA Battery Pack to it, then connect all six Blue Bit Light cables. Turn ON the battery pack to test all the blue lights are working OK.

 

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

 

8.) Tip all the trans light blue round plates out of the bottle then take an Adhesive Square and stick it to the side of the trans light blue plates where we have installed one of the Blue Bit Lights to. We will be installing 6 blue lights around the base of the bottle.

 

Mount the LEGO plates with Bit Light to the base of the bottle as shown below, then thread the connector end of the cable through the lower gap of the bottle. Pull the cable all the way out from behind.

 

We will now install the remaining five Blue Bit Lights around the base of the bottle. Using the same method as above, mount the other five trans light blue round plates with Bit Lights to the base of the bottle using extra Adhesive Squares. Continue to thread the other end of the cables through the same gap we did for the first Blue Bit Light.

 

 

9.) Turn the bottle around to the back, then ensure all cables inside the bottle are laid away from the brown plates except for the two cables shown below. Lay these two cables in between the brown plates.

 

Twist/wind the six cables around each other all the way to the ends so they come together to form one larger cable, then starting with the shorter two cables, connect all six cables to the 8-Port Expansion Board.

 

Group all the cables closest the expansion board and twist/wind them around the larger cable so they group together.

 

 

10.) Pour back in, all of the trans light blue round plates into the bottle. Spread the pieces out evenly to try and cover the cables inside, then turn the bottle back around to the front.

 

Take the ship and thread the group of three cables through the gap on the left of the blue bit light cables. Pull the cables all the way out from behind to then allow you to reconnect the ship back inside the bottle.

 

 

11.) Reconnect all the trans clear sections which make up main section of the bottle.

 

 

12.) Take a White 30cm Bit Light and with the cable facing down, place it over the centre of the studs on top of the main bottle section. Secure the Bit Light in place by reconnecting the bottle top section.

 

Bring the other end of the cable across to the right,  then twist/wind it around the group of white 30cm bit lights (on the right side). Connect the bit light to the next port on the 6-Port Expansion Board.
