The force has awakened in Ukraine.
A recent law banning Communist symbols in the country meant that a Soviet-era statue of Vladimir Lenin in Odessa needed to come down. Instead, the city opted to transform it into a monument to one of pop culture's greatest villains: Darth Vader.
Ukrainian artist Aleksander Milov helped push the statue to the dark side by replacing Lenin's head with Darth Vader's helmet and fashioning his coattails into a cape.
Aside from giving fans a fun place to congregate, Milov also turned the Sith Lord's helmet into a Wi-Fi hotspot, according to reports.
