I'm wondering the same thing. He mentioned something about wanting to hear sirens So I wrangled up a bunch of cop cars to chase me in the area close to the ghost but nothing happened.

Heh, I think it's kind of clever and amusing you guys tried getting cops to chase you. I got the impression that they were referring to like a mythological siren, like you see in God of War. I don't know, I'm still stumped here as well and am just assuming that I'll unlock something later that will let me get to these crates.

I have no idea either. I tried the police chasing thing, so at least it's not just me.

It's not. They appear elsewhere.

You need some special part for your cart that you earn from a Grunty Battle later in the game, I think.

Since the Stop and Swop was mentioned, how exactly does that work? Do I really have to pay 6000(!) notes to bottles to find out?

*Possible Spoilers*


The 6000 notes thing is a joke I believe. You get about 6000 notes when you beat the game, and that is the only thing you can spend it on, there is nothing anywhere near that value to buy in the rest of the game, and when you do it bottles just says "I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you, and we couldn't show that in a game with this rating. Put it out of your mind and think happy thoughts! Thanks for the notes!"

The Stop n' Swop in the actual game is simple. There is a key imprint ontop of the gym, and eggs somewhere around the town. If you get the key or eggs in the XBLA game, a crate appears next to these. You take these to mumbo and you'll get some special vehicle parts.

I haven't actually done any of this, this is all things I've read on the interweb, so it isn't necciceraly 100% true, but it all sounds pretty believable.

Did anyone come up with an inventive way to beat Grunty in that challenge? All my current planes and helicopters were no match, so I made the following...

A huge cage with an open bottom made of super poles, on top, foldy propellers and weapons that all faced into the cage, and at the back a few jets to go forward, and upward.

When the stage begins, I hit the jets, we launch off in her direction, as soon as we're on top, I fold out the big propellors and slam on full reverse, the cage slams down on top of grunty, she's going invisible on and off... then I let her have it. Missles, lasers, eggs the whole works firing at her. 

It was sick really, because she screams every time you would shoot her normally, now I had in her trapped in a cage and she was screaming non stop, until the BLING! noise of earning the Jiggy... hahaha

I had an attack plane, simple really, just blasted the hell out of her with Torpediles. Took 16 seconds.
