The Sapporo Snow Festival, is one of Japan’s largest and most favorite winter events. The fest draws in over 2 million viewers to the winter wonderland in Odori Park full of ice and snow sculptures that are groundbreaking feats of art and imagination.

This year the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force’s 11th Brigade’s 1st Snow Sculpture Squad got official endorsement from Lucasfilm to create a monumental Star Wars sculpture using 3500 tons of snow. This imperial masterpiece displays the fan favorites of Darth Vader, Storm Troopers, and a couple Tie Fighters. Simply awesome, but why no Snow trooper if snow?
