'80's movies are perfect for Lego sets, and The Clash of the Titans deserves the exact same recognition for its groundbreaking special effects and iconic story. Here you get the gods in armor, Perseus, Andromeda in her convertible royal sedan-chair, a White Pegasus, a tough new Black Pegasus, a glimmering pearl-bronze Colossus of Rhodes, and an authentic specimen of the cryptozoological wonder, Kraken Hexapus Mediterraneensis!
There are 10 pages in all... If you think that these set a standard for design quality that Lego should uphold, or if you just want to see the possibility of more full themes from Cuusoo, or heck, if you just think that these will make a nice profit for Lego that will help fund everybody's favorite themes and dreams, then please come and support them all!
Absolutely thanks again to everyone!! =D
And Keep on Building...!
THE CREATOR'S NOTES:
These sets have been in the making for 36 years now. In sum, this is the fruit of the input of over a hundred archaeologists, scientists, and historians from six continents, most of whom have 4-to-8-year-olds of their own now. And when they see this, all of them are all asking the exact same question... "Why hasn't Lego done this years ago?!"
I carefully designed this set to be right around the $120 to $130 mark for everything you see on the whole page, just like all the bigger castle sets and headquarters sets. I planned it within that limit so they could sell this on the shelf at any store in the world... but if you want, you can vote to make it bigger or smaller when you click to support!

of hi-res images and concept art for the whole series.
Since Medusa is a Lego Minifig, she can lose her head and keep on right talking, much like the Myth of Orpheus. Perhaps Perseus and Odysseus will have to find a way to cleverly trick her head into petrifying her own beloved Kraken, and then she can get her head back on her shoulders, to cause more mayhem in the second and third act! After all, in Lego movies, the figs can reassemble themselves with ease if they get knocked apart!
Seafarers from every civilization have told tales of primordial and gargantuan sea-beasts since time immemorial, including Tiamat, Leviathan, Scylla, Charybdis, and the Kraken. The name of the Kraken originally comes from Scandinavian Mythology, immortalized in the iconic and beloved movie Clash of the Titans, but it also refers to tales of Titanic octopus-like or squid-like sea monsters feared by sailors in the Mediterranean.
The Kraken has two large translucent-bright-green eyes on top, plus a ring of six smaller translucent-bright-green eyes around its hexagonal tentacle ring, as a nod to the fact that Scylla from the Odyssey had a ring of six dog's-heads around her waist, six necks, and a body made of tentacles! His design is also an homage to the groundbreaking sci-fi work "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" by Jules Verne. He can easily swallow up to 12 minifigs through his mouth and directly down into his cavernous belly, like a Sarlacc. Then you can see all of the terrified minifigs inside him through his bulging trans-blue belly membranes on his sides. Then he can open his belly membranes to vomit the figs out for more playtime fun!
Oh, plus Andromeda gets a sword and shield too... Once the Kraken has been dealt with, she is free to join the fight!
