R2-D2 minifig with lights and sound

I did a custom install of a "lights and sound" board from a Hasbro R2-D2 action figure into a LEGO R2-D2 minifig. I removed the board from the action figure and did some extensive testing and rerouting of the traces and components. This was needed in order to cut the board down small enough to fit inside the minifig. Everything needed to run the lights and sound are now inside the minifig. I used a 6mm x 6mm tactile switch in the dome and everything is running from a CR1225 battery inside the "body".
