Quoted from Hdmike444:
Just added a balrog votive and lit it with red LEDs. I might get some orange and try those.

With mine, it took me close to 10 hours, but I wired any orange super to each shoulder, and a high power (for all directions) in the head, so that he glows orange, which looks a little more accurate to his true colour to me. I had intended on red first, but then I had this idea, as part two was hooking a double super flashed (9 total leds, 12v) with a small flashing light reflector around it, which points out of his mouth. This is hooked to the PF balrog. He glows orange, but when the balrog goes off, it looks as though he is spitting fire, as the light out the mouth is intense, but it doesn't light the entire thing. I'm quite happy with it, it came out very nice.
I also used the same flashlight reflector and double stack flasher behind the eye in the backglass, hooked to the spinner flasher. When it's lit, it shines light only exactly for the eye and the glow of the eye on the BG, and doesn't light everything else, but because of the reflector, it really is super noticeable.
for the POTD, I used four characters (used one with a cape twice, removed the cape and with different poses and weapons, they look different), adhered them above the lane switches, and wired them to the corresponding lighting in the back POTD light board. Now, I just have to watch the figures when the balls up there, and I try (and make myself believe that I'm actually doing something haha) to nudge in a direction.
I'll try to post a vid of everything if anyone is interested and how they were done.
