Now you need to drill a hole where the head used to be about the same size as your LED.
After that hollow out the inside of the lego guy.

Step 7: Battery

Now solder both sides of the battery to the wires using the correct polarity.

Dude, you can't solder button cell batteries... They will explode in your face. Ask anyone.

I was waiting for a comment like this, And yes the battery will explode if not handled carefully, But if you are only adding small blobs very quickly it won't explode in your face.... I hope.
Alright... As long as you know the risk...

Don't keep us in suspense, tell us where you think the switch should go.
on its foot or something its just a joke cuz the button is in a place that it shouldn't be.... if yo dont get it then your weird... :)

That is AWESOME!!! Great lego-man!
Does anyone have any ideas what you can get an LED off of?

P.S. I'm voting +1!
a great way to get led's in bulk is to buy a string of christmas lights. there is an instructable here that should be able to help you

You can usually get them from cheap kids toys, if not chances are that if something has a light on it its probably an LED.

hahahaha You evil person.
you should use a jumbo yello led, then carefully paint eyes and a smile on.

You do not nessarily need the switch to turn it on and off. I am sure there is a way you could postition the wires so when you aply pressure to his body the connection is made.

thanks for all your comments
nice looks cool! i think a whole bunch of them would look tight!

lol. the LED is it's head. good job!
Really cool idea LaxLuvr. If you could, then you can drill out the holes like how Evil Mad Scientist Labs did, and it looks really awesome.
