Default You have the ability to overcome, inspire... you know what just take the rings.

And so they begin to arrive.



The rings are actually VERY nice. Blue, Pink, Indigo and I think yellow are purely cast with only a gloss coat to bring out the shine. Red has the glossiest paint job I've seen outside of a sports car, pictures just do NOT do this pain justice.

Thanks to the metallic elements in the plastic and the paint (In at least some cases) all of the rings seem to glow to a small extent (They do NOT glow in the dark, want to head that off before the question pops up) except the Black ring of course which makes perfect sense.




And thanks to these arriving today I have my Hal Jordan Costume, I just have to find my Rainbow Suspenders. lol

Note, this will be the only time the pink ring is ever worn, at least by me.



I've got two more (Minimum) sets arriving within the next three weeks. One for display, one for bagged display and I don't know, one to play with because let's face it we're all just big kids at heart. lol

Nope they're real, and they're amazing. All I need is my blue to complete the spectrum.

That's cool. I'm only gonna be able to get two of these (Blue and Green) because those issues are just to expensive for me.

That sucks. If it makes you feel any better, I'm getting 5 sets of them for myself.

I don't think buying issues is a problem though, ebay is infested with those rings.

So is it true that the red and green ones are painted while the rest are just molded in color?
