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!

Lighting the Escape Pod

1.) The first section we will light up will be the escape pod. To start, disconnect this from the main ship and then disconnect the following pieces from the front left.









Disconnect the 1×2 technic brick and then disconnect the trans-light blue tile from the back of it.



2.) Take a White 15cm Bit Light and then thread the connector side through the blue technic pin. Thread it all the way through until the Bit Light is right up against the technic pin, then bend the Bit Light slightly so that it sits flat.




Secure the Bit Light in place by connecting a provided LEGO Trans Light Blue plate 1×1 over the top.


3.) Reconnect the 1×2 Technic brick back to the escape pod and then reconnect pieces we removed earlier.





4.) Repeat previous steps to install another White 15cm Bit Light to the right side of the escape pod.
