es, this set also comes with a specialLego light feature, which if implemented can add to the overall beauty of theLego set. And though this may seem a bit technical, I can assure you that thereis nothing to worry about. You can install it successfully if you follow thesefive simple steps

1. Assemble the set before adding light.

So don't get too excited about the lights yet, because if the set is not assembled then you can not add the lights yet. This is because while the set is dismantled you can not know where the lights are to fit In.

So you will need to have assembled the set properly, knowing where each piece fits in. Once that is done, we can now move over to the next phase.

2. Check the accessories before installation.

This is the next and very important step. You will need to make sure that all Accessories are complete and that all wires are enough to complete the installation.

This will help save you from doing half-done work, or from leaving the entire lightning work altogether. Once the accessories are complete you can then move to the next stage.

3. Following the instruction manual all steps for the way.

Now it is time to install your light. Every Lego light kit comes with an instruction manual on how to properly install the lights, so always refer to the manual.

You may feel as though it is not important, most especially if you are already familiar with the Lego light kit, but remember that the new R2D2 Lego set is with new features and also that will include a new manual for the Light kit so ensure you follow the instructions so as to get a well-illuminated Lego Starwars R2D2 set.

4. Pass the lights and wires properly.

This is also very important. A tip; all light and wires are to be passed through the inside of the set. So if you are done wiring and there are some wires sticking out of the set, you have done a poor job.

So ensure you follow the manual and when you’re done you will see that you would have installed all the lights without it sticking out, leaving you with a nice clean job.

5. Test the lights.

It is now time for you to test the lights. This means you will have to turn on each of the installed lights and check if all of them are working properly.

If during your check you discover that a light bulb isn’t working properly then you may need to check your installation to see whether you installed it properly.

So you see installing a Lego light kit isn't as hard as it sounds plus, once it's done you would literally see the R2D2 Lego Starwars set in another light, that shines from within.


The Lego R2D2 set is an amazing set that should be really an addition to the collection of all Lego lovers out there. The set has a design that stays true to its original Starwars counterpart, with a very large build.

This set also pays a vet good attention to detail with very cool additional features that have not been seen in Lego sets until now. It also comes with a secret compartment which adds to an overall amazing building experience.

And to make this set even more amazing, it now comes with a Lego light feature that helps make the overall beauty of the set stand out in an even impressive illuminating work of art.

So if you decide to go for this set with the light kit feature I can assure you that your experience In building will be on like anything you’ve ever felt before.
