Hot glue gun (not shown)
Step 2: Supplies

1 3 volt button cell battery
Step 3: Off With His Head!
First you need to cut off the lego guys head, I used my rotary tool to do this.
Step 4: Drilling Out
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 5: Wires
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
Step 6: Switch
The switch is optional but is highly recommended.
after you have wired your switch glue it to the back of the lego guy.
Step 7: Battery
Now solder both sides of the battery to the wires using the correct polarity.

Step 8: Legs
Now cut the stubs off the legs and glue them back on the body.
Step 9: ITS ALIVE!
Now test it out.
I used a connector to secure the battery and it has been very reliable.
