Default One for the Jedi - Combine rope lights on one switch?

Hi all,

I'm a bit of an electronics noob, with a big idea in mind..... and no idea how to go about it.

The background info; I'm making a lightsaber for my son. I have completed the hilt and there is a sufficient area inside for a rope light switch.
I have this item in mind for the beam =rope light= (ebay item 370568849951) and I have purchased the 4 Jedi colours of green, blue, purple and red.

The idea was to make it so that he can interchange the colours, however I'm wondering if it is possible to wire all of the colours into a single switch box, so that only one lights up at a time, and have a seperate switch to alternate the colours?

This is it so far... yet to cheaply source some polycarbonate tube to house the neon ropes!;




Any help with achieving this would be very much appreciated!
Cheers,
K
