1. Showcasing the Craftsmanship of the Aircraft

The LEGO Dune Royal Atreides Ornithopter is built with bricks to create more than just a replica. Once assembled, each brick embodies the spirit of Dune, allowing enthusiasts to relive the most thrilling moments from the movie. 

The aircraft model consists of 1,369 pieces, which each LEGO creator can painstakingly put together to create the legendary aircraft. With so much attention to detail, incorporating LEGO lights is the best way to showcase the product of your hard work and creativity. Lights bring attention to every detail of this intricate design and the level of precision with which the 2021 Dune film inspired each part. 

2. Adding Dynamic to the Wing Movement

Aside from looking real, adding LEGO lights to the Dune Royal Atreides Ornithopter also functions like the real thing.

When the aircraft switches to flight mode, you can relive the thrilling ride from the movie. The flight mode retracts the landing gear and the rear ramp. Meanwhile, subtle lighting makes it highly interactive. The lighting makes you watch in awe, as you did in the movie,  because it functions much like the aircraft that showcased the power of the House of Atreides.
