    • As shown in the first photo, it is very important to look at the color of the wires for the lights in this kit.

    • Lights with red and black wires can be connected to any adapter their plugs will fit into.

    • Lights with blue and white wires can ONLY be connected to either a BRANCH09 or BRANCH09X adapter board. Connecting a light with blue and white wires to any other adapter board (including other adapters where the plugs fit) will destroy the light.

    • The second photo is a visual reference for the controllers and adapter boards included with your kit. You may want to print a copy to reference as you walk through the instructions. You can download a PDF copy of this illustration here.

    • Here are some other very important tips to keep in mind as you connect the parts in this kit:

    • Plugs connect to adapter boards and controllers only one way. Do not force plugs.

    • Do not remove plugs with tabs by pulling on the wire. Always use your fingernails or tweezers to remove plugs by pulling on the tabs of the plug, not the wires.

    • Many boards have connectors that face vertically (upward). Use extra care when connecting or disconnecting plugs to these connectors. Pulling or pushing sideways on any vertically-facing plug can cause the plug to come detached from its circuit board.

  3. Note that this guide applies only to "Version 2" light + sound kits for the Falcon-- these are the kits sold beginning with the November 2019 batch of orders.  If your kit was part of an earlier batch, these instructions will not be relevant.  Contact us if you have misplaced the printed guide that was included with your kit. Depending on when your kit was manufactured, it may have one of two different designs of TRUNK08 master controller included.

    • Depending on when your kit was manufactured, it may have one of two different designs of TRUNK08 master controller included.

    • The TRUNK08 master controller is included inside the pink bag labeled Main Control and Connecting Parts.

    • The first photo in this step shows the version 4 TRUNK08 controller. This controller has a black dial in the upper right corner, and it also has top-facing plugs for the OUT1, OUT2, OUT3, and OUT4 connectors.

    • The second photo in this step shows the version 7 TRUNK08 controller. This controller has a blue dial in the upper right corner, and it also has side-facing plugs for the OUT1, OUT2, OUT3, and OUT4 connectors.

    • Both controllers operate identically, and plugs are labeled the same with the exception of the Version 7 controller having three "pixel" output plugs while the Version 4 controller has only one "pixel" output plug. If your kit has a Version 7 controller, you will only use the "PIXEL1" plug to connect adapter boards,

  4. When connecting plugs, it is important to be able to tell the top of the plug from the bottom.  The first photo in this step shows the top of two different types of plugs, and the second photo shows the bottoms. Plugs will fit into connectors only one way.  Do not force! When removing plugs, to not pull from the wire.  As shown in the third photo in this step, use your fingers to pinch the tabs on larger plugs and pull on the tabs to remove.

    • The connectors in this kit can hold plugs very tightly. Pulling on the wire instead of using the tabs on larger plugs will cause the wires to pull out. Once a wire pulls out from a plug, it cannot be repaired.

  5. You will be running a lot of wires during the installation of this kit.  Because the Millennium Falcon model is constructed using many LEGO® Technic parts, there are many holes and gaps through which you can run the wires.  You can use the Technic parts to secure wires by wrapping excess wire around the Technic elements. You can also use a tweezers or pencil to coil excess wire to prevent it from getting caught in gaps. The first photo in this step shows a wire with standard-size connector passing between two Technic bricks.

    • As shown in the first photo, remove the 12 red Technic pins holding the lower mount to the main Falcon frame.

    • Remove the lower mount from under the Falcon.

    • You should now have the complete lower mount removed with red pins attached, as shown in the second photo.

    • As shown by the orange rectangle in the third photo, feed the laser light wires through the two OUTER Technic holes in the mount.

    • It is important to run the wires through the OUTER holes, not the INNER holes. The laser cannon itself uses the two INNER holes to attach to the mount.

  64. As shown in the first photo, re-attach the laser cannon to the main mount, being careful to pull the laser light wires (red circles) through the holes so there is no extra slack sticking out. As shown in the second and third photos, you should now have the laser cannon re-attached to the main mount with the light wires passing through the two outer Technic holes in the mount. before re-attaching the laser cannon mount to the main frame, feed the laser light wires up into the main body of the Falcon.  Gently pull them as you re-attach the mount so there are no slack wires sticking out once the mount is fully re-attached.
