LEGO and LEDs - any tips on soldering?

So I just got back from the shops in HK and noticed that they were selling some LEDs on lego mini figs such as the hulk buster, modular buildings and light sabers. It seems that most of these LEDs are the micro LEDs. Do you guys know how to solder these LEDs as they are tiny and do not have "legs" sticking out from them.

    @AceCobra1 You are not allowed to take photos in that shopping center ;) 



    You might be able to find some of these LEDs on eBay, look for prewired LED. But it might not be as small, however it does the job as long as you can put the cable somewhere.
