I think the rules you want are these (we use the symbolic names for the packet sub-type as it makes things clearer)

# /etc/sysconfig/ip6tables
# ... -A INPUT -p ipv6-icmp --icmpv6-type router-advertisement
-A INPUT -p ipv6-icmp --icmpv6-type router-advertisement
	-j DROP
-A INPUT -p ipv6-icmp -j ACCEPT
-A INPUT -j REJECT --reject-with icmp6-adm-prohibited
# ...

I do not know that you need to filter or attempt to direct 'router-solicitation' as your comments mentioned. We have not had a 'real world' need to do so. We run a variation of these rules at pmman

from: man 8 ip6tables

       This extension can be used  if  ‘--protocol  ipv6-icmp’  or
       ‘--protocol icmpv6’ is specified. It provides the following

       [!] --icmpv6-type type[/code]|typename
              This allows specification of the ICMPv6 type,  which
              can  be a numeric ICMPv6 type, type and code, or one
              of the ICMPv6 type names shown by the command
               ip6tables -p ipv6-icmp -h
