    THANKS FOR THE PHOTOS, THE BEAR DOES LOOK VERY MUCH THE SAME, PERHAPS THEY HAD SOME OVER AND REDRESSED HIM <img src='style_emoticons//ph34r.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ph34r.gif’ />

    THE BULL DOG LOOKS GOOD, A GOOD STURDY LITTLE CHAP <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> VERY BRITISH
    I LIKE THE WAY HE IS STANDING SO PROUD WITH HIS HEAD WELL UP.

    THANKS AGAIN….. MARGARET….. <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ />

    Lisa what does the 20 years on the Harrods Bear refer to?

    Hmmm, these two are not for me – no pzazzz

    Maybe the Beefeater will be holding some of the Crown Jewels!!! <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ />

    Better luck next time <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ />

    Nicki,

    I am not sure but think the “20 years” on the teddy foot symbolizes Mohammed Al Fayed owning HARRODS for that long as it was purchasesd by Mr. Fayed back in 1985.

    I don't care for that additional information on the bear foot, it's too distracting.

    WHAT DOES EVERYONE ELSE THINK OF THESE TWO SOLIDS?

    I am disappointed in the bear also. I think that the bear looks too much like Giles also!!!!! Is his name going to be Jiles??? <img src='style_emoticons//tongue.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’tongue.gif’ />

    Is it just me or do the arms look funny on the bear???

    I am with you on this one Lisa— very disappointing. <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ />

    The dog I will have to see in person. <img src='style_emoticons//huh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’huh.gif’ />

    I'm not too keen on the bear either. It looks as though something is missing too.
    Don't think much of the bulldog either.
    I thought it was a Sentry not a Beefeater though!

    Oh Boy! These two look way out of proportion to me. And for the ego on the bears left foot it just is way to big. If it has to be incorporated put on the right foot,small under Harrod's. Yes, the bears arms look like sausages. The poor dog is muscle bond with a tiny head. Who knows maybe they look great, but not in these photos. Just my 2 cents. The designers blew it on these two. <img src='style_emoticons//blink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’blink.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//unsure.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’unsure.gif’ />

    Hi all,
    Great photo's Lisa <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ />
    I think the bear would be great if it had a hat on it and a few sparkly's too.
    The dog should be draped in a union jack with sparkly's.
    Will have to buy the bear though as I'm too far down the line to stop. <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ />

    HI MAGGIE…… GOOD TO SEE YOU POSTING <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ />

    GOT TO AGREE WITH YOU A BIT OF BLING WOULD HAVE BEEN AN IMPROVEMENT

    I have to ditto Maggie's comments and add my disappointment in the Harrods solids this year so far. <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ />

    But will have to get the bear to add to the series. <img src='style_emoticons//unsure.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’unsure.gif’ />

    Don't like either one so its with much regret I will not buy them. My hat is off to the collectors who will buy this one to add to their collections of bears.

    This makes me wonder on a bigger picture about future designs for Harrods solids and how the buying public will react. Only time will tell, but I have to say that yes I am concerned especially if they keep this up this way.

    I have to agree about the bear. They could have done something different and add just a little bling. Maybe one day the entire bear will be covered with rhinestones. <img src='style_emoticons//rolleyes.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’rolleyes.gif’ />

    I'm still going to buy all the Harrods solids. I want a complete set of the bears. I'm more concerned with Harrod's service and getting the solids in a timely manner.
