Quoted from gibsonrd:

I have a sword topper that I have setup for a LOTR, and I was wondering what the best way to hook it up to make it only come on when certain things are active, like a mode start light. I'm guessing I would run the led strip wires through the back of the head and connect it by banana clips to a lead and ground??
Does anyone on here sell led strips that would work for that? Looking for blue.
Thanks!

Do not attach it directly to controlled lamps or things will get screwed up. I do not recommend to use banana clips except for testing, use a more reliable method such as wire taps or soldering, clips can fall off and possibly short or damage your game.

You do not deserve an LOTR, and should give it to me.

Thanks for the reply! I will hook it to the GI instead. I'm not worthy!

That is a bit easier and safer. If you want something jazzy, perhaps you can find LEDs that "do something"- but run off constant power. For my Maverick topper, I run a string of sockets off the GI with slow blink LED bulbs.
