I've been wanting to do this and finally got all the parts to do it with.
The camera flash made it look dim here.
Heres how I did it in about 30 minutes. Picture below instructions.
-Mass Device Cannon
-Dremel with drill bits.
-Hot Glue Gun
-Disassembled advertisement Pen light I got for free at a job fair.
Step 1- Put mass cannon in hot water to loosen glue.
Step 2- Pulled each end cap up a little then twisted off the ends.
Step 3- The hard step. Be careful and don't use much force to pry apart the cannon halves. Mine wouldn't give at all. So I used the dremel's long small drillbit to cut away at interior pegs holding the halves together. With the pegs severed it came open with ease. I then ground the pegs down and painted the area where the light would go black so the light wouldn't make the mass cannon glow. While you have the drill out, drill a hole in the back of the top end cap where the crystal plugs in so light can shine through it.
Step 4- Lined up the pen light then hot glued it in place. marked the on buttons location and drilled a tiny hole on opposite half of cannon.
Step 5- Reassembled cannon. The end caps hold the cannon together perfectly. You can't tell its ever been disassembled. Use a micro screwdriver or paper clip to turn on the pen light through the hole you drilled.
Step 6 - Conquer the world.

Yay! Awesome mod man. I'm in the process of doing this as well but I'm cutting the screens, buttons, etc out and replacing them with clear parts. Hopefully when I'm done all the electronic stuff will light up and flash, flicker, etc.

Because they don't think about making really good product anymore.
The time has come for the Cobra to rise up and reveal himself. You will call me... Commander!
