Grab a shovel ya'll, Star Wars snowmen here we come!

Finally some a good use for all of the snow each winter! Japanese Self-Defense Forces put on their gloves and hats to push 3500 tons of snow into this beautiful sculpture of the Empire.  Darth Vader, the Death Star, his Tie Fighter, and Stormtroopers span 23 meters wide, and 15 meters tall!
