Can I do something like a Odysseus moc? I just saw a movie about it and I want to do one.

Would you mind giving us your definition of "Titan"? Do you mean the actual Titans, mythological monsters, the Greek gods, etc.?

He would be a great subject for this contest.



Zeessi:
We do not wish to limit creativity, as long as your effort reflects greek mythology of the gods and/or creatures etc. it will qualify for the contest.

Hey guys,

I just joined this group.

One quick question about the contest.

Can we include custom minifigs in our MOCs?
Also is sculpting, painting, decaling, or part modification allowed for creating custom minifig(s)?

We will allow some customising to figures, however the figure should still be recognisable as a LEGO character when your done. I will leave you to decide how far to push those limits!

As I see titans are spiritual creatures, so If you find useful pictures about titans, please share it.

How directly linked to the titans must it be? Could it be any aspect of Greek. Mythology?

Hi Sorry if this is a bit of a stupid question, but I'm working on some Jason and the ARgonaut stuff and wondered if this would be ok as it falls within the Greek mythology bracket!

Hayden,:

If it is part of greek mythology then the Titans were involved! Any greek myth is therfore acceptable. Just be careful not to mix up history and myth eg: my 300 MOC would not qualify as this is an event in history whereas the minotaur in the maze is a myth. Troy covers both, the horse was a peice of human ingenuity that lileky happend at this battle. Hector and Achillies feats at the battle on the other hand are now built up in the myths of the gods 'protecting' them.

Hammerstein NWC:

Jason was manipulated by the gods and fought the Titans thoughout the story so I think I'm safe in saying this will be fine! Lol.
