Summary

After building the Shack Bot, I decided that adding the flashing LEDs was going to be a bother. (As opposed to spending hours working on this adapter.) But I thought that having a Lego minifigure seem to drive the robot could be just as fun for the kids.

Instructions

First build the Shack Bot - http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:32510 - which is ambitious. It took me six hours just to print the body on that.

After that's done, print out this adapter to allow a Lego minifigure to perch in the drivers seat.
I used:
5% infill
.27 layer height
2 shells
on a MakerBot Replicator using ABS.

For a base, this part has two bumps that fit in the holes that the LEDs would normally go through. The other side is the inverse of the bottom of a three by four Lego piece. Put a Lego piece on the adapter and then a regular minifigure will fit comfortably in a seated position with enough room for the dome to fit over.

Very cool idea. Printed easily and snapped to fit perfectly with the lego base. The two nubs for the rocket were a little loose, so I zapped them with a lighter and squished them a bit. perfect tightness now.

Still going to wire up the lights, but now they'll be accents for the pilot.
