Lenin Statue Transformed Into Darth Vader


A statue of former Russian leader Vladimir Lenin has been transformed into Darth Vader in the Ukraine.

Residents of Odessa where the Lenin statue resides, decided it was “time for new heroes,” according to Russian news agency TASS.

Apparently, even the rule of the Galactic Empire is preferable to communism.

Locals enlisted the help of sculptor Alexander Milov to cast the new sculpture over the existing statue. Apparently, it even houses a Wi-Fi router with free access.

That’s how the Dark Side gets you.

Actually, the statue was created in response to a new Ukrainian law designed to erase reminders of their communist past. Although lord Vader might seem like a bad guy replacing a bad guy, remember he totally repented at the end of Return of the Jedi.

Before the official reveal on Friday, check out more photos of the brand new statue after the break.
