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.

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 LED light bars inside the lightsaber blade. Disconnect the lightsaber from Yoda, then carefully detach the left side section as show below:

 

Disassemble the lightsaber, then disconnect half of the trans green round bricks to allow us to fully remove the white technic axle bar.

 

 

2.) Organise the lightsaber blade into two equally long sections, then take out an LED Light Bar 12cm. Thread the top of the bar through the bottom half of the blade (through the technic hole). Thread the bar all the way through, then pull it out from the top. Continue to thread the entire bar through the bottom of the top half of the blade as shown below. Bring the bottom half of the blade up and reconnect it to the top half.

 

Take the second LED Light Bar 12cm and thread the top of the bar all the way through the bottom of the blade until it meets the bottom of the first led light bar. The cable from the first light bar should be kept inside one of the four grooves from the Technic axle.

 

Note: The two LED Light Bars have been designed to allow you to cut them to size, in case you have a slightly shorter lightsaber blade due to display reasons (less trans bright green bricks in the blade). If you find the LED Bars are too long, simply cut them to size at the top end of the bar (not the cable end). Ensure that you cut the bar in between the LEDs and the cut is above the circuit board resister. It is completely safe to cut the board. 

 

The bottom of the second LED Bar should end just before the base of the last trans bright green round brick.

 

 

3.) Group the ends of the two light bar cables together and thread them through the top of the three 2×2 round plates. Pull the cables all the way out from underneath the plates, then reconnect them to the bottom of the blade.

 

Ensure the two cables are laid together inside one of the axle hole grooves, then take the provided LEGO Bar 3L (any colour) and connect it to the axle hole. The provided LEGO bar will be used to hold the blade to the handle section. The cables should be secured neatly inside the axle groove as shown below:

 

Ensure the two cables are laid through the gap of the bottom of the light grey 2×2 round plate, then reconnect this entire section to the handle section via the provided LEGO bar. Ensure the cables are laid out the opposite side of the lightsaber button, then reconnect the upper part of the handle.

 

 

4.) Connect the two LED light bar cables to a 6-Port Expansion Board. Take a 5cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the end port on the expansion board, then connect the other end of the cable to one of the OUT ports on the Pulse Effects Board (PFX).

 

Take a 15cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the IN port on the Pulse Effects Board, then connect the other end of the cable to a new 6-Port Expansion Board.

 

Take a USB Power Cable and connect it to the end port on the 6-port Expansion Board from previous step, then connect the USB connection end to your USB Power Bank or wall adaptor (sold separately). Turn it ON to test the LED light bars in the blade are working OK. Take this time to configure your desired pulse effect by choosing from one of the three settings via the switch. Fast Pulse, Medium Pulse, Slow Pulse.

 

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.

 

 

5.) Take out the Light My Bricks Lightsaber Green and connect it to a spare port on the first 6-port expansion board (the same board the light bars are connected to).

 

Bring the Yoda left side section we disconnected at the start, then disconnect the following light grey 2×12 plate from the inside of it.

 

 

6.) Reconnect the lightsaber to Yoda’s hand ensuring the cables are laid behind. Bring the two cables down the inside of the left section and lay them inside as shown below. Reconnect the 2×12 plate with the cables laid underneath.

 

Fold the two cables into a neat bunch as shown below, then tuck it inside the following space, along with the 6-port expansion board and pulse effects board.

 

Carefully reconnect the entire left side section ensuring the cables are neatly laid out underneath.

 

 

7.) Take the RGB Control Board and connect a 5cm Connecting Cable to the IN port (+5V). Connect the other end of the connecting cable to a spare port on the 6-port expansion board near Yoda’s feet. Ensure the IR sensor from the RGB control board is facing up.

 

Take the Yoda display stand and turn it around, then take the following provided Black LEGO pieces:

  • Black Plate 1×6
  • Black Plate 1×2 modified w Handle on End 
  • Black Tile 1×1 w Clip 

 

Connect the above pieces to the back of the Yoda display stand as shown below:

 

 

8.) Take an RGB Strip Light and connect an RGB Connecting Cable 15cm to one of the ports, then take another RGB Connecting Cable 15cm and connect it to the Strip Light’s other port. Using it’s adhesive backing, stick the Strip Light to the bottom of the black 1×6 plate we connected to the back of the display stand. Position the plate and strip light so that it is facing upward (to shine up onto Yoda)

 

 

9.) Take the below provided pieces and follow the images to assemble brackets for a right and left spotlight.

  • 2x Black Plate 1×6
  • 2x Black Plate 1×2 modified w Handle on End 
  • 2x Black Tile 1×1 w Clip 
  • 2x Black Dish Inverted 3×3

 

 

10.) Take other end of the RGB Connecting Cable 15cm from the right side of the display stand and connect it to a new RGB Strip Light. Using the strip light’s adhesive backing, stick it onto the back of the 1×6 plate from the right spot light. Position the spot light on the right side of Yoda and tilt it upward so that it will shine up onto the right side.

 

Take the other end of the RGB Connecting Cable 15cm from the left side of the display stand and connect it to the remaining RGB Strip Light. Take remaining RGB Connecting Cable 15cm and connect it to the strip light’s other port. Using the strip light’s adhesive backing, stick it onto the back of the 1×6 plate from the left spot light.

 

Locate the spare end of the RGB 15cm Cable from previous step and connect it to one of the OUT ports on the RGB control Board located near Yoda’s feet. Position the spot light on the left side of Yoda and tilt it upward so that it will shine up onto the left side.

 

 

11.) Disconnect the minifig Yoda as well as it’s lightsaber. Connect the Light My Bricks Lightsaber Green to Yoda, then tuck the cable in between Yoda’s legs. Reconnect it to the display stand.

 

Neatly position the display stand in front of Yoda (so that the strip light attached behind will shine up onto Yoda), then neaten up the RGB control board and expansion board behind. Ensure the IR sensor on the control board is accessible to enable a clear line of sight signal for the remote control.

 

 

12.) Connect up your power source and turn everything ON. By default, the RGB Strip Lights are deactivated and need to be turned on via the RGB Remote Control. You can choose from 13 different colours and 5 different effects.

OK, Let’s begin Part 2!

 

47.) We will now install lights to the back jets. First disconnect the three larger jet sections, then follow the images below to disassemble one of them.

 

 

48.) Take a Cool White 30cm Large Bit Light and with the LED facing up, place it in the centre of the bottom of the rigid 2×2 round brick. Secure the Bit Light in place by reconnecting the trans light blue dishes over the top. You should be able to clearly see the LED peaking through the centre of the dishes.

 

Flip this section over and fold the cable down against the outside of the rigid brick, then thread the connector end of the cable through the inside of the Jet pieces, pulling the cable all the way out from the other side.

 

Reconnect the round technic pieces back on top, ensuring the yellow technic pin is connecting to the rigid brick on the inside of the jet. Push down the yellow technic pin so that the dark grey brick is flat and can easily reconnect to the back of the ship later.

 

Thread the jet light cable through the space just underneath where the left jet reconnects to, then from the inside of the ship, pull the cable all the way out. Securely reconnect the Jet to the back of the ship.

 

Connect the Large Bit Light to a new 6-Port Expansion Board.

 

 

48.) Follow the previous step to install another Cool White 30cm Large Bit Light to the middle Jet section.

 

Thread the Bit Light cable through the gap on the top right of where the middle Jet reconnects to. Pull the cable all the way out from the inside of the ship, then securely reconnect the middle Jet to the back of the ship.

 

From the back of the ship, thread the cable through the following space that leads to the inside, then from the the inside (turn the ship around to the right side), pull the cable all the way out. Locate the same 6-Port Expansion Board we connected the other Jet light to and pull it over to this side, then connect the bit light cable to it.

 

 

49.) Install another Cool White 30cm Large Bit Light to the right large Jet (using the same method used in previous steps), then thread the cable through the following gap just underneath where the right jet reconnects to. Pull the cable all the way out from the inside of the ship, then securely reconnect the right Jet to the back of the ship.

 

Connect the Bit Light cable to the same 6-port Expansion board as per previous steps, then connect a new 5cm Connecting Cable to a spare port. Connect the other end of the 5cm cable to one of the OUT ports on the Pulse Effects Board (PFX)

 

Take another 5cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the IN port on the Pulse Effects Board, then connect the other end of the cable to a spare port on the 12-Port Expansion Board on the right side of the ship.

 

Turn ON the power to test the large jet lights are working OK. They should also be pulsing via the effects board. We can configure the desired effect later on when we connect up the other jet lights.

 

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.

 

 

50.) We will now light up the four smaller jet sections. First disconnect all four jets by pulling each one out as shown below:

 

 

51.) Take one of the jet sections and disassemble it as shown below, then take a Cool White 30cm Bit Light and thread the connector end of the cable through the top of the the trans light blue round brick. Pull the cable all the way out from the other side, then carefully bend the LED so that it sits flat against the top of the brick. Secure the Bit Light in place by connecting a provided Trans Light Blue Round Plate 1×1 over the top.

 

Carefully reconnect the black bar inside the round brick, then thread the connector end of the cable along with the black bar through the top of the jet section.

 

The cable should be laid inside space between the bar and corner axis.

 

Thread the connector end of the cable along with the black bar through the top of the two rigid 2×2 bricks, then securely reconnect everything together.

 

Ensure the cable is laid in the space in between black bar and axis.

 

 

52.) Bring this jet section close to the back of the ship and thread the bit light cable through the following space that leads to the inside of the ship. Pull the cable all the way out from the inside of the ship, then securely reconnect the jet section to the back as shown below.

 

From the inside of the ship, find the bit light cable and connect it to a new 6-Port Expansion Board.

 

 

53.) Using the same method we used to install the first smaller jet light, install another Cool White 30cm Bit Light to another Jet.

 

Thread the cable through the space just above the bottom jet at the back of the ship before securely reconnecting the jet. From the inside of the ship, pull the bit light cable out and connect it to the same 6-port expansion board we connected the first smaller jet light to.

 

Thread the 6-Port Expansion Board through the middle space into the right side of the ship. This will make it easier to locate the expansion board when we need to connect the other two smaller jets on the right side.

 

 

54.) Install another 2x Cool White 30cm Bit Lights to the two remaining smaller jets, then thread the cables through the following spaces before securely reconnecting them to the back of the ship. Pull each bit light cable out from the inside of the right side of the ship, then connect both bit lights to the 6-port Expansion board from previous step.

 

 

55.) Take a 5cm Connecting Cable and connect one end to a spare port on the 6-port expansion board we connected the smaller jet lights to. Connect the other end of the cable to the second OUT port on the Pulse Effects Board.

 

We can now configure the pulse effects board to your desired effect. This effects board has 3 different effects, which can be set using the 3-way switch on the board. Fast Pulse, Medium Pulse, Slow Pulse.

 

Turn ON the power to test all the jet lights are working and configure your desired effect.

 

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.

 

 

56.) Reconnect the front right panel to the ship by clicking in the technic ball joints, then flip the set over and reconnect the front left panel.

 

 

57.) Take the following middle section we removed earlier and remove the first half of this section. Disconnect the light grey slope tile at the front, then take a Cool White 30cm Bit Light and with the cable facing down, place it over the front stud. Secure the light in place by connecting a provided Trans Clear Slope 30 1x1x2/3 over the top, then reconnect the two halves together.

 

Reconnect this section to the top of the ship, ensuring the bit light cable is laid underneath but is still accessible for us to connect it up later on.

 

 

58.) Turn the ship around again to the right side, then take the back right panel and disconnect the three laser cannon sections from it as shown below.

 

Take one of the laser cannons and disassemble as per below.

 

 

59.) This next process will be very similar to the process used to install the lights to the previous laser cannons.

Take a Green 15cm Micro Bit Light and carefully bend the LED so that it is facing longways up. Thread the Bit Light inside the hole of one of the cannon pieces, then fold the cable down the side of the canon. Ensuring the cable is laid directly on the side of the stud, reconnect the 1×1 round plate over the top. The cable should be secured in between the plates.

 

Reconnect this section to the left cannon base, then reconnect it to the large plate ensuring the cable is laid underneath and in between the middle studs.

 

Install another Green 15cm Micro Bit Light to the right cannon, then reconnect it to the large plate ensuring the cable is laid underneath and in between studs.

 

Ensuring both micro bit light cables are laid in between studs, reconnect the angled plate behind the cannons, then reconnect the section to the right panel.

 

 

60.) Repeat the previous step to install lights to the two other cannon sections using 4x Green 15cm Micro Bit Lights. Reconnect each section to the right panel.

 

 

61.) Flip the entire right panel over, then connect the cables from the two outer cannons to a Micro 4-Port Expansion Board. Take the cables from the centre cannon and connect them to a different Micro 4-Port Expansion Board.

 

Take 2x 15cm Connecting Cables and each one to the two micro expansion boards’ large port.

 

Take 2x 30cm Connecting Cables and connect each one to the two micro expansion boards’ other large port.

 

Bring the entire panel up towards the ship and place the expansion boards and cables inside, then securely reconnect this panel using the technic ball joints. Reconnect the 2×4 tile and 2×2 rounded bottom plate to secure the front and back panels together.

 

 

62.) Bring the 4 connecting cables from the micro expansion boards inside the ship together and thread them underneath the middle section to the left side. Turn the ship over to the left side, then pull the four cables out.

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.) Start by disconnecting  the following sections from the top of the ship.

 

Use your LEGO removal tool to disconnect the following pieces to allow us to remove the two panels that make up the entire left section of the ship.

 

Disconnect the Tantive via the trans clear clip

 

 

2.) We will now install seven lights along the side of the ship. Take a Cool White 30cm Bit Light and with the cable facing up, place it over the following stud near the front of the ship. Secure the Bit Light in place by connecting a provided Trans Clear Round Plate 1×1 over the top.

 

Bring the cable over towards the inside of the ship, then feed the cable underneath the following technic pieces.

 

 

3.) Take out another Cool White 30cm Bit Light and install it to the next stud down the side of the ship as shown below. Secure it in place with another provided Trans Clear Round Plate 1×1. Feed the cable underneath the technic pieces as we did for the previous bit light cable.

 

 

4.) Using the same method used in previous steps, install another 2x Cool White 30cm Bit Lights to the following studs along the side of the ship. Follow the images below to ensure you install the lights to the correct location. Secure them in place using 2x Trans Clear Round Plates 1×1. Once installed, lay the cables inside toward the first two Bit Light cables.

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 install lights to the cockpit. Start by disconnecting the roof section on each side, then disconnect the following middle sections as shown below:

 

Disassemble the middle section as shown below, then take the red and trans dark clear pieces.

 

 

2.) Take 2x Cool White 30cm Bit Lights and with the cables facing the right side, place both of them over the studs of the red plate. Secure them in place by reconnecting the trans dark clear plates over the top. The 2 LEDs should fit nicely inside the studs of the trans dark clear plates.

 

Reconnect the following section on top, then flip it over and push the cables down into the corner before reconnecting it to the two white arch bricks. Lay the two cables down the middle in between studs before reconnecting the right section over the top of the cables.

 

Flip this section over and ensure both cables are tucked in between white bricks, then flip it back over and reconnect the middle section on top.

 

 

3.) Take a new Cool White 30cm Bit Light and using an Adhesive Square, stick it underneath the middle section in the below position with cable facing the back.

 

Slip the Bit Light Cable in between the two centre arched bricks, then lay it out toward the back before reconnecting the grey 2×3 plate over the top of the cables. Ensure the cable is laid in between studs.

 

 

4.) Connect the cables from the three bit lights we have just installed to a 6-Port Expansion Board. Take your USB Power Cable and connect it to the expansion board. Connect the USB end to a USB Power Bank (sold separately) and turn it ON 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.

 

Disconnect the USB Power Cable from the expansion board, then reconnect the middle section back to the front of the ship.

Take a 5cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the 6-Port Expansion Board. Thread the other end of the cable toward the back, underneath the red and yellow technic bricks, then connect it to the IN port on the Multi Effects Board (side with one port).

 

Reconnect the white 1×4 tile to the front side of this section as well as the roof of the spare laser section.

 

 

29.) We will now install lights to the back jets starting with the bottom jets. Turn the Tantive IV over and disconnect the four jets from the bottom by disconnecting them at the technic pins.

 

Turn the jet sections over, then remove the barrel sections from each jet. Disassemble the left one as shown below:

 

 

30.) Take a White 30cm Bit Light and thread the connector side of the cable through the bottom of the grey round 2×2 plate. Pull the cable all the way out from the other side, then carefully bend the Bit Light on a 90 degree angle so that it sits flat against the edge of the middle hole. Secure the Bit Light in place by reconnecting the trans orange 2×2 rounded plate.

 

Reconnect the technic bar to the other side of the grey round 2×2 plate, then thread the Bit Light cable through one of the holes in the technic barrel. Pull the cable all the way out from the other side, then reconnect the technic bar ensuring the cable is facing the inside as shown below (toward the middle):

Note – Because the LED is installed, it will prevent you from being able to completely push in the technic bar. Do not forcefully push the technic bar all the way in. Doing so will damage the Bit Light. 

 

 

31.) Repeat previous step to install another 3x White 30cm Bit Lights to each of the remaining bottom jets.

 

 

32.) Secure the cable for the far left jet and the far right jet underneath the following sections in the middle.

 

Turn the Tantive IV back over and disconnect the four upper jet sections from the top of the ship.

 

 

33.) Turn the Tantive IV back over to the bottom side and reconnect the far right jet. Thread the Bit Light cable through the top of the following space toward the left of it, then pull the cable all the way out from underneath.

 

Take the middle jet to the left, and while ensuring the cable is laid up the middle toward the front, reconnect the jet. Thread the Bit Light cable through the same space we threaded the right jet light through, then pull the cable all the way out from underneath.

 

 

34.) Repeat the previous step to reconnect the remaining two bottom jets, while threading each of their Bit Light cables through the following space, and pulling them all the way out from underneath.

 

 

35.) Turn the Tantive IV back over to the top side and connect the four Bit Light cables from the bottom four jets to a 6-Port Expansion Board.

 

Take a 15cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the same 6-Port Expansion Board. Take the other end of the cable and thread it through the following space which leads into the middle area where we left the Multi Effects Board. Pull the cable out from the other side and connect it to one of the OUT ports on the Multi Effects Board.

 

Turn the USB Power Bank ON and configure the rear jets effect by flicking the switch on the Multi Effects Board to the far right for the “Flicker Effect”. Adjust the speed of the flicker by turning the speed wheel. Alternatively you can choose your desired effect by flicking the switch to either the “Pulse” or “Emergency” effect.

 

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.

 

 

36.) Neaten up the cables from the bottom four jets by folding and twisting them around each other into a neat bunch as shown below:

 

Use 2x Adhesive Squares to mount the 6-Port Expansion Board to back of the Tantive IV in the following position, then tuck the bunched up cables inside the following space.

 

 

37.) Remove the three middle jet sections, then disassemble them as per below:

 

Take a White 30cm Bit Light and thread the connector side of the cable through the bottom of the grey round 2×2 plate. Pull the cable all the way out from the other side, then carefully bend the Bit Light on a 90 degree angle so that it sits flat against the edge of the plate. Secure the Bit Light in place by reconnecting the trans orange 2×2 rounded plate.

 

Reconnect the black technic bar to the other side of the grey round 2×2 plate, then thread the Bit Light cable through one of the holes in the technic barrel. Pull the cable all the way out from the other side, then reconnect the technic bar.

 

Note – Because the LED is installed, it will prevent you from being able to completely push in the technic bar. Do not forcefully push the technic bar all the way in. Doing so will damage the Bit Light. 

 

 

38.) Reconnect the barrel to the section behind, then bring the cable down and underneath the bottom before reconnecting the jet section to the middle row on the back of the Tantive IV. The cable should be pulled out from underneath and toward the front.
