How about limiting the blinking area somewhat, like making it just a circle in the middle for example?
(now imagine it blinking in yellow and red, or just flashing red)
Something like that is a little more along the lines of what I was thinking, at least the light in the center part. I'm not sure about the blinking yellow and red thing, I don't think they should blink at all, it should be more like a slow glowing red light coming from the center.
That outside red glow used in some of the examples here is way too much, and just looks like a cheap effect. If you want to have an outer glow, it needs to be very subtle, not looking like a neon sign outside the bar at midnight.
The arrows should also light up, but just a little bit, not nearly as much as the center circle. Just imagine there is a single red light bulb inside the bomb, and when it shines, it will reflect a little of that on the arrows, but will be strongest in the center instead of each arrow having it's own light source. I hope that makes sense.
