    I've been looking for some small kits but I'm not having much luck. I just got a few cool transformers that I think I'd take a try to light up their eyes.

    Anyone know of any small LED kits that would be easy to use?

    If you can find them, the Mag-Warriors from Mega Bloks. I can really only find them at Ross and TJ-Max type places. But they have really tiny self-contained light up systems in their heads. I stuck one in my Leader glass Megatron's head and you could mod them to fit inside smaller TFs too.,

    Wait until Christmas gets closer, buy a string of those rice lights and then rip the bulbs from those.

    not to hijack the thread, but I always wanted to swap out the light pipeing plastic for plastic that glowed in the dark. anybody done that. might be an alternative for lights.

    Swapping out the plastic could be troublesome, since you'd need to cut out all the lightpiping, or at least a part of it.

    for the LEDs, check out your local electronics store or The Source, they'll likely have tiny LEDs, and possibly entire kits.

    Cut? I can't think of any recent figure offhand that didn't have their lightpiping screwed into the back of their head or were able to be taken out by opening the head easily etc. Am I forgetting someone?

    The only real problem I can think of would be getting the glow in the dark material to match the size/fit the area correctly. Isn't there glow sculpey though? Hmm...
