You can build it yourself. You just need:

- 5 flasher caps (transparent, several pinball part shops have these)

- A cable

For example like this one (Conrad):

- 5 RGB leds (350mA)

For instance these on e-bay:

IMPORTANT TIP: the plus sign on one of the legs is NOT the right one, use the one opposite. Probably a manufacturing fault. If you stick to that they work awesome and are very cheap.

- 15 resistors of 27 Ohm if you decide to hook them up on the 12V power supply of the PC. Also via Conrad or any other electronic store.

Much more satisfying and transport costs via zebsboards in Canada are pretty steep.
