New Millennium Falcon # 75192

We've received many questions about our plans for a lighting kit for the beautiful new Millennium Falcon (LEGO set #75192).  We have developed a kit for this model that includes not only lights, but SOUND as well.

We're working to get the kits ready for shipment beginning in February 2018.  There are so many amazing features in the kit that we had to create a website dedicated just to the kit:

www.lightmyfalcon.com

Plenty of photos, videos (with sound!) and detail about this amazing kit.

I'm starting this new Forum post so anyone out there who either has the set or who has ideas about what they'd like to see in a lighting and sound kit can let us know.  We're still early in the process, so make your voice known!

  • Some drilling is sometimes worth the pain.  ;)  (Though I try to only drill "cheap" Bricklink-priced parts, not the super rare ones... but a pinched wire can rapidly lead to shorts and fried lights/power supplies, so occasionally taking a drill to a 7-cent brick is the lesser of the two evils.  😀

  • Hehe...i did drill tonight!!!  looks so awesone though...

    and the blinky light effect too...see the video...

  • I added a layer of one 1x2 plate yellow translucent and two round 1x1 translucent blue and orange in the middle of the console box console. I put 2 pico white under each 1x1 and plugged them in a LEC with Blinky lights effect. I used a branch 3 on each output of the LEC so I can have one pico light going to that console and the other one will go in the cockpit, and I do the same with the other LEC output so it will use the same Blinky effect for console and cockpit

  • I also added a few brick to hold a blue pico shining on the lower window at the lower cannon.

  • Christian Nanini very nice.  I decided I wanted all the Internal lights on one IR channel, all external lights on another, then the top side cannon on a final channel.  For me, the bottom side cannon is going away so I can wall mount

  • Brett Halper Christian Nanini great work guys!  I love seeing the photos and the creativity taking place in both of your builds.  We got our own model in the shop yesterday, and will be working this week on developing our lighting kit.  Your work will be an inspiration!  Keep up the great work.

  • Rob Klingberg a white one under an orange 1x1 and a blue cylinder. I’m not sure yet about the orange-Red effect.  I tried blue and tried white but was too bright. What do you think?

  • Christian Nanini Rob Klingberg I've found that using a trans-cylinder defuses the light nicely.  If you want it even more defused, use a white cylinder.

  • Christian Nanini Overall I like the effect.

  • Brett Halper how did you light up the  Engine? Looks like you added vertical connectors!!any jet engine shaking effects or just constant blue light?

    Like
  • Christian Nanini same exact method you shared.  That is only one light.  I haven't played around with any LEC effects on it yet.  I'll take some pictures of each assembly tomorrow.  Until then, enjoy my finished cockpit (the red and orange lights blink)!

  • Brett Halper cool

    please send picture of the lights and wiring... I am down to bag #13 so the back of the ship. I will keep the 2 openings open so we can see the two rooms through my table top. Not Into the cockpit yet but yours looks really nice!!

  • Christian Nanini did you keep the blue with grey plate on in the back or did you changed for green lights?

  • Christian Nanini you will find the jet engine effect for the rear engine is awesome!!!!

  • Christian Nanini pictures of the engine assembly.  I kept the grey grids, but moved them further into the ship to make room for the new assemblies. About 25 of these snap onto the top rung to create the curved back. I then feed two of the pool noodles behind to create a nice effect and diffuse light.

  • Completed and mounted.  Cannon alternates top/bottom lights. Happy to answer any questions or take different pictures if asked.

  • Brett Halper can you show me how you did light up the canon on top?  I'll continue the build this week-end...i am still waiting on some Lego spare parts for the canon.  and if you can take pictures of how you fixed the falcon to the TV stand...

  • I'll get some pictures tonight/tomorrow on the cannon ontop as well as the stand.

  • For the cannon, drilled through the long posts to feed the wires through (had to cut the connectors off then resolder). 

     

    For the mount, used two L-brackets and then a few different metal mending plates.  Drilled into them /the base plate and secured with nuts /bolts.  Very important to brace the set in the front/back and not just the middle.
