You could use laser_assembler to convert the laser scans into Pointcloud2 messages. It holds the point clouds in a rolling buffer until called by a service. You can either leave it like this or edit the periodic_snapshotter program in the examples folder on github to call the service and publish the pointclouds to a topic at a set rate.
