Our pal Windell @ Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories writes – “It’s remarkably easy to hack LEDs into Lego minifigures to make awesome, creepy, and tiny decorations for Halloween. In what seems like a miraculous coincidence, a standard LED fits exactly into the head of a Lego minifigure. It’s that easy: grab an LED and a head, slip it in, and it fits perfectly.” [via] – Link.

    That’s pretty nifty! LEGO makes an orange pumpkin head that would be great here instead of the standard yellow head. You can also use a CR1025 battery that will fit inside the minifig torso after a little modification to the torso and hip sections.
