R2-D2 Minifig Brickmodder’ed With Lights and Sound

Rob over at Brickmodder Labs is a master at lighting up minifigs. He was the one responsible for my light-up chrome C-3PO fig. I always knew he was able to do an R2-D2 minifig, but he decided to take it one step further. By taking the sound and light components from a Hasbro action figure, he modded the circuit board and cut it down to size to fit inside an R2 minifig body to create the world’s first minifig with sound. For more information and a video, check out the Brickmodder Labs Blogology post: R2-D2 minifig with lights and sound . And just to answer everyone’s questions up front: no, he is not selling his fig; and he has no plans on mass producing it either.
