Back when they prepped those promotional rings for Blackest Night, DC evidently bought in bulk. Because they're offering another one. This time, for their big 2011 Flashpoint event. New Flashpoint edition Flash rings will be available when you pick up June's Flashpoint #2. Or through whatever fiscal hoops your retailer wishes you to leap through, depending on corruption levels. Most though, will just give them to you when you buy the book.
Alright, so let's tally up those rings:

Everything You Know Will Change in a Flash!
Not a dream, not an imaginary story, not an elseworld. This is a Flash Fact: When Barry Allen wakes at his desk, he discovers the world has changed. Family is alive, loved ones are strangers, and close friends are different, gone or worse. It’s a world on the brink of a cataclysmic war – but where are Earth’s Greatest Heroes to stop it? It’s a place where America’s last hope is Cyborg, who hopes to gather the forces of the Outsider, the Secret 7, S!H!A!Z!A!M!, Citizen Cold and other new and familiar-yet-altered faces.
It’s a world that could be running out of time, if The Flash can’t find the villain who altered the time line!
Welcome to FLASHPOINT!
