You can even see Vader’s cape chain and seam lines on his glove, insane.

This year is the 66th Sapporo Snow festival At night, the sculpture is accompanied with light and sound, Vader’s giant lightsaber glows it’s signature red and the Star Wars theme blares out regularly. Yesterday was quite rainy so the detail did suffer during the day, the TIE Fighters are no more and the Death Star is looking a bit deflated.
