A dirt cheap LED lego guy
The tools you will need are: Soldering iron Rotary tool Hot glue gun (not shown)
The supplies you will need are: LED Lego guy Solder 1 3 volt button cell battery
First you need to cut off the lego guys head, I used my rotary tool to do this.
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.
Now attach 2 wires to your LED and push it through the hole in the top of the lego guy then fill with hot glue
The switch is optional but is highly recommended. after you have wired your switch glue it to the back of the lego guy.
Now solder both sides of the battery to the wires using the correct polarity.(I am not responsible for bodily injuries caused by exploding batteries)
Now cut the stubs off the legs and glue them back on the body.
Now test it out. I used a connector to secure the battery and it has been very reliable.
