Who, you never dreamed at least once, to be a God, like Zeus?
Below I have represented a utopian society made up of Titans and the Gods.
And like the Greeks (Ideal Society) teach us, the Titans fall, crushed by the power of Zeus at the foot of Mount Olympus.
This was a very clever idea in order to avoid microscale and a very solid build no doubt. Like others, I'm missing something to measure the size, like animals, humans or houses. But even if you didn't win, this is still a lovely vig.
Quoting Annie Corder
You were a very worthy opponent, Riccardo. It was great playing against you! :)
Thanks Annie, it was very interesting to compete against you.
Our category (Utopian Microscale) put me in difficulty. Because I have not ever built in microscale, and I do not like the microscale.
However, this is a race, and you did a good job.
Keep it up, do not stop doing Lego, you're good, and over time will improve even more.
I will follow your path in Mocpages.
I'm in agreement almost word for word with ElBarto on this one. Love the concept, but the minifigs still "feel" like minifigs. I think you could've altered that by a more complex interpretation of Olympus, with more buildings, and such. And for the same reasons as ElBarto my vote also goes to your opponent. A nice entry, though, and again - well done on the concept.
This is great, and a clever interpretation of the category! I understand your use of the minifigs in a microscale landscape, but I think the primary focus is still on them. Mount Olympus is only the background. Therefore, regrettably, my vote is with your opponent. Good luck with the other judges, Dude!
Nice take on the category, and it takes guts to incorporate minifigures into a micro build.

...You've left me speechless...It...It's...Amazing!!!....
This is very good Riccardo, I like everything about it, the only thing I would do is to dark a little the white background (enhances the beautiful details you build) but that just my opinion, great job and best of luck!
Hello friends, I want to explain to everyone 's interpretation that I give to my creation.
The mountain is Mount Olympus, the white spots on it, are the temples of the gods.
The top mattress, is the temple of Zeus, because he is the King, and he live on top of 'Olympus.
The Titans were giants, so I thought I had to scale than Mount Olympus.
What is a utopia?
A utopia is an impossible thing.
In this case, the 'utopia for me, is a society of gods and giants, and I believe it is not feasible in our reality.
Thank you all, you are always very kind.
This is realy cool! Love all the minifigs and that you potrayed them as gods/giants, very clever, i've finally added my entry :) I think we both need to edit ours, a few too many photos and not enough text. Would be great to hear what you think of mine ;)
Great idea using minifigures as "giants"! For those who not understood the vig, the white spots in the mountain are greek temples or constructions, so it is microscale. The minifigs are the gods, so they may look huge in comparison with the buildings. It fit perfectly in the Microscale part. About Utopia, well lets wait what the judges will say. Anyways, good luck, you have a solid build here!
Interesting, using minifigures as gods and Titans in a microscale vignette, I don't think I've seen that before, might get you an extra point... or one less depending on what the judges think of it :S
I find it very cool either way.
Hmm. Not really getting the idea of a Microscale, nor of a Utopia here. I'll look through again though. Awesome work on the figs. A better writeup may have been necessary. Not your best build though best of luck with the judges.
