Do you need replacement stickers for LEGO (reproductions and customs): ministickers.nl

It's 9V, but not PF
Or you can use the x543 from the 7866, but that is 12V
Or maybe do something with the fiberoptics unit, 6637
Or maybe use a (micro) motor to toggle a PF switch ..
Edit : I don't know if Mindstorms can do it? That would be PF
If you wanna go non-LEGO, you just need and AMV (astable multi vibrator) with just a couple of generic transistors or a 555 (there are plenty of readymade kits for that too). A microcontroller is a wee bit overkill for this app

You can use a motor to turn the internal axle hole. This creates an intermitant signal from the output. You could then use a power functions adaptor cable to connect to your PF lights. Obviously the speed of the driveshaft turning the internals of the pole reverser would determine the speed of the flashing.
If any thing, I thought that this type of pole reverser is better than the newer PF one, Due to the variety of ways which it can be used.

Turn the motor on, it flicks the switch back and forth, turning the lights on and off
