Close-up rings comparison:

The 2012 ring is a round, small design. I think it has the edge in color, but that's about it. It's part of the statue's light-up feature, which isn't particularly attractive to me. I bought this statue 2nd hand and I immediately took the batteries out to avoid long-term damage to the inner mechanisms that light the ring. However, some collectors really prize features like this.

The 2016 ring is sculpted to be a larger part of Hal's hand. It has a raised design that gives the illusion of going all the way around his finger. My only minor gripe is that the paint used to give the glowing effect is a little too yellowish.

Cruzin' through Sector 2814.
