    Heya all!

    I was thinking of attempting to make an Alt. Inferno or Ratchet, and I'd need a lightbar or two to complete their vehicle modes obviously. I recall an online store that sells light bars for toy vehicles being plugged here before. Does anyone here recall that link, or know of a similar store? Thanks!

    Or you could buy toy police cars and rescue vehicles at dollar stores and such, and simply cannibalize them for parts. :)

    ^ That's what I did when I built my Alt. Ratchet. Bought a $5 toy fire truck and striped everything useful off of it!

    If looking for a spare BTA Red Alert head, just buy a Ricochet figure and repaint the head.

    I recommend them, that's where I got my lightbar for Alt Checkpoint - it was handy to get it pre-painted. Although I see a lot of additional items that I might consider at policecarmodels.com too. Thanks for that link bumblebee15!

    Yeah, the lightbars for CHP Prowl were from Silver Shield as well.
