Image of the Day: Towering Japanese Star Wars snow sculpture

This titanic Star Wars snow sculpture hails from the annual Sapporo Snow Festival in Japan, which kicked off its frosty festivities last weekend.  The epic "Mount Rushmore of Hoth" was created from 700 five-ton truckloads of snow, stands 50 feet tall and 72 feet wide and is the biggest snow sculpture ever built for the event.   Kinda makes your sweet little Snow Tauntaun seem insignificant compared to the power of the dark side, doesn't it?
