Default Arroba Silver?

How's the quality of their products? The power rings they have for sale on their site look amazing. Unfortunately, I live in the US; is there any way to get around their "only shipping to Mexico" rule?

Damn I was thinking of getting some of their GL rings too but, I wanted to see some real life pics because I know the stock photos are prob photoshopped a bit to look pristine. I didnt notice they didnt ship the DC stuff outside of mexico =(

The rings look as good as their online pictures. I have several and have not been disappointed.

A: No, You can't. We just sell them in Mexico. If you have an address in Mexico you can buy it.

The only in mexico thing is recent, and it does have to do with their DC license. It is unfortunate and they are trying to resolve that. Their rings are very, very impressive.

That only shipping to Mexico is a bummer. I've been wanting to order a ring from them for a while but I live in the US. Hopefully it gets resolved before too long.

I would seriously consider saving and ordering the gold plated Sinestro Corps ring from that all needful things store but the symbol on it is not accurate. Seriously frustrating.

Anyone bought from arroba silver recently? I really want to get one of their GL rings but on their FAQ page it says they dont ship them out of Mexico. Wanted to know if anyone was able to get one to the US recently?

Yeah I just got mine off arrobasilver on ebay. The kyle rayner symbol ring, anyway it sucks. I'n hoping not all their stuff is this way. But it's pretty terrible they usually reply to me in an hour or two I sent a message about it this morning and nothing. I'm getting my money back.

How does it suck? It's just that I've never heard a bad word said about them.

I honestly suspect the problem with that ring is that the design wasn't particular impressive. I have probably close to 20 rings from them and their quality has always been good. Only problems I've had was they sent the wrong ring one time (same style, just wrong color choice) and they simply replaced the ring without me having to send the wrong one back. It's always possible for a ring to be damaged or somewhat imperfect, but I definitely can vouch for their quality and consistency overall.

I hope they get the shipping thing sorted. I was hoping to get one of their Anodized Black lantern rings.
