I agree 100%. If I could snap my fingers and have any of them back, that would be it. When I saw Fellowship of the Ring, I also thought it was a nod to Collosus.

Those are some tough ones but this is my list (suprisingly, I only have visited the Colloseum)

Angkor Wat
Easter Island Statues
Great Pyramid of Giza
Great Wall of China
Colloseum
Machu Picchu
Taj Mahal
