    I think it would have been nice for Estee Lauder to made special solids for the Olympics. That would not only appeal to us solid collectors, but to Olympics collectors, as well. How about a gymnist on the bars, or a “gold metal” or……..

    Linda,

    Yes, I agree with you…. solids with a meaning behind them would be neet!! <img src='style_emoticons//wink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’wink.gif’ />

    Yes, Linda, that would be a good idea.

    Maybe either a solid of the Akropolis – my interpretation of Greece origin/synomym of the olympic idea, which would fit to the “Taj Mahal” – or a portrayal of the Olympic flame.

    Anyway, that would mean to leave the idea of pups, chicks or cats …, oh, well, that's really a joke <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ />

    Yes, I agree. I think a Solid in the shape of the Acropolis would be really pretty, just don't squish a figure inside like the Cupids Garden <img src='style_emoticons//rolleyes.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’rolleyes.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//rolleyes.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’rolleyes.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//rolleyes.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’rolleyes.gif’ />

    Great idea, with the year of course, then they could bring out a new one each time <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ />

    Hmm, a solid of the Acropolis … after really very good thinking
    I don't believe it's a good idea … this would be a DAMAGED solid <img src='style_emoticons//tongue.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’tongue.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//tongue.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’tongue.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//tongue.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’tongue.gif’ />

    Astrid,

    Loved your comment about the Acropolis being a “damaged solid” … too funny! <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ />

    I do think the Acropolis would have made a great solid and wish that EL had continued the international theme (last year we had the Chinese Junk and Taj Mahal and the year before the Sphinx). I kind of miss that … maybe the Tulip Quartet was this year's (it's old world charm reminds me of Italy). Actually, all of the Strongwater solids appear to be of a certain period. I don't know art history by any means, but could it be Italian Renaissance? Charlotte, help!

    I like the ideas here…. but I was thinking along the lines of one of those male swimmers or divers in a speedo!!! <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />

    My thoughts exactly, Lisa – the invention of the body suit was a bummer for those who like to watch!! <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />

    They may have tried this with the ice skate. I think it came out during a Winter Olympics year. I'm a big figure skating fan but I was very disappointed in the skate and didn't buy it.
    I like the Olympics “landmark” theme idea.
