I ordered this light kit with another one and couldn't wait to get it. Due to COVID, the wait was about 2 weeks longer, but customer service was very responsive to my email inquiries. The light kits arrived and I went to work. The lights are great and the wiring is super thin as to not cause any "look" issues. The online installation instructions were great. The only issue I had was with removing some blocks from the Batmobile to put the lights on. So be careful with removing the bricks to make sure you get them back on correctly. I give this light kit 5 Stars. Thank you Game of Bricks.
Overall, I’m very pleased with the final result. The advanced/remote version looks awesome!
What I love:
- Final look. There are other competitors with similar kits, but their colour schemes and/or effects (or lack thereof) are not as good as this set.
- Price. The competitors often have higher prices for similar kits.
- Customer service: Nikita is very responsive and helpful!
- Packaging: sturdy box; all components are in individual bags.
- Wires: on this particular set most wires are well hidden.
There are some things to be aware of though:
- The installation process for such a large set is fiddly and requires some skill. Wires are thin and not too long (yet not too short either). The connectors are very tiny to handle.
- The instructions are available online, not in the box (videos for most sets). They are not always straightforward. Guidance for the installation process is light, especially compared to Lego instructions.
- Cheap comes at a ‘cost’. The provided blocks are not official Lego blocks. It ships from China so takes a little while to get here (but with clear tracking).
- Provided battery box isn’t enough power for the remote version. Mentioned in the instructions but easy to miss. Use a power bank.
Several of the technical ‘negatives’ actually provided a nice challenge for me personally (I'm an engineer). Non-Lego pieces are hard for purists. Set your expectations correctly.
The end result, for that price, is worth it to me. I ordered other sets soon after.
Came quickly and easy to put on, easy to tidy up and nice and bright. I will definitely buy again and instructions were sent to me when I asked. Only thing is top headlights are a bit dim.
The kit arrived safe and sound.
Nice packaging by the way.
Installation was straight forward. I did not need any instructions.
I have to say that I was very pleased about the good quality of the kit. Especially the interconnect board I like a lot.
Only two things I like to comment here.
First the LEDs in the indicator lights are not fully sunk, so the light glass will not seat perfectly.
Second I suggest to add come small strips of sticky tape for the wire management.
Ideally in the corresponding colors of the model parts.
The next lighting kit will definitely be ordered from Game of Bricks again!
My first experience with Game of Bricks and I am impressed, the kit is wel thought out although a bit tricky to install, I reckon it would help if you buy the lights before you start building the model so you can fit all the wires everywhere a bit easier.
the 2 extra lights on top are very dim compared to the, very bright, headlights. although I suspect that is because the lights aren't held in the rooflights properly so on my model they are pulled back a little and on an angle, which decreases the lights effectiveness, I might fiddle around a bit more to get the lights to shine directly forward.
one big(-ish) downside is the pressure switch for the interior lights, although it works (the interior lights go out when the door is closed) the pressure switch is a bit to high so the frame of the door wher eI installed it is bend outwards a bit. my kit did came with an extra, long, connector wire so I might take out the pressure switch and just have the interior lights on together with the other lights.
still, I would recommend this kit, but only if you're going to use the model statically, as the wires are quite thin and go through the interior I fear they might get snagged in the gears (and subsequently break) if the model is actually played with.
Arrived fast, clear instructions! Great +5
Wonderful kit and customer support. I will definitely buy more lights!
Bought this but seller has not made instructions on what to do with each bag of pieces!
So glad i got these lights for my Central Perk Lego set.
They look fantastic and they look just like in the pictures but far better.
They were pretty straightforward to install and the video instruction you get sent was extremely helpful to a Lego novice like me ;)
This company has the most fantastic customer service i have ever experienced.
Thank you Nikita for all your assistance and help.
If your looking to light up your Lego sets, look no further.
You will not be disappointed with your purchase from this company.
These lights look awesome on the land rover the picture they have does not do it Justice.. The install wires are a little thin which makes it easier to hide them.. And I would prefer if the wires could be rerouted all to the back of the truck... Other than that they're definitely worth it.. as a heads up I would recommend asking for instructions at time of order because this kit does not come with any at all.
Spend the few extra dollars and get the standard or the remote version definitely worth it
Ordered the remote version as the model is stored out of the reach of smaller hands! Item arrived exactly as described and the end result is fantastic. I was really expecting the remote to simple switch the lights on and off not control each set of lights and switch between flashing and static lighting options, very impressed guys! Anyone with this model I can't recommend this kit enough.
The only slight issue is that the online instructions seem to repeat in a number of places which caused some confusion and it surely would make sense to have consistent numbering not Step 1 = Bag 1, Step 2 = Bag 6, Step 3 = Bag 9. Creates some frustration but doesn't detract from the overall effect of this kit.
Overall this light set is great, it adds a lot of life to the London scene and I love the colour choices! One thing to keep in mind: The provided transparent flexible tubing for the London Eye was not quite as wide as the official LEGO tubing, so the clips for each capsule would slide around rather than staying in place. However, this can be solved by using one of the provided tubes in combination with one original tube from the set, which provides enough grip. This does however mean than only one of the tubes is clear (the originals are white), but it still looks great when completed!
I love this kit. Customer support is very helpful. Thank you Game of bricks team😇
it looks incomparable to what it used to look like, thank you
100% recommend this company! Fantastic customer service !! Helped me out so much when I had a problem with another company, officially saved Christmas! Thank you so much.
Commande incomplète, délais de livraison non respecté (plus d'un mois), aucune instruction de montage. En attente d'une discussion avec le SAV
My son fantasized about being a character in one of the batman series. With these lights by Game of Bricks, which be the way came on time, my son feels like he plays a big role in helping Batman save Gotham after we installed them into his batmobile. It’s really funny, but I am really pleased with these lights. Thanks!
If your looking for a fun and beautiful set look no farther this is the one. If you h as ve the set you have to have these lights !
Pricing and quality are the two interconnected factors that put a smile on my face. This set is affordable and doesn’t go off quickly. I am happy with my purchase.
Nikita is very helpful! Thank you.
Great stuff. Easy to install. Durability is on point. Came on time. I am very satisfied.
Lights I’ve received make my gingerbread look like actual gingerbread. I hope I won’t eat it. :D nice lights
I never knew we can install lights onto our Lego sets. Thank you for making this possible, Game of Bricks! This is great!
