This is the big brother of "The illuminated LED man". Again I used the Joule Thief circuit to light up an LED with a single AA battery. But this time the guy is a bit bigger. ;)   Of course I couldn't use resistors for the body here, so I took copper wire from an electric cable.

See 1up's instructable "Make a Joule Thief" for the circuits schematic
