If there's one thing that I miss about living in an area that sees snowy, wintry weather, it's making snowmen. I mean, it just doesn't feel right to make a snowman out of dirt while wearing shorts. However, the following snow artists are doing winter right with some awesomely nerdy creations.

Jabba the Snowman

Neighborhood kids found a magician's hat and put it on Jabba the Snowman. To their surprise, he came to life! His first words were "Ha! Ha! Ha! Solo." It was all downhill from there.  Nerd Approved

Zelda Triforce snow sculpture

It takes power, courage and wisdom to carve an intricate Legend of Zelda Triforce snow sculpture when you're drunk. Once completed, they immediately wished for more beer.  Reddit via Nerd Approved

Two-story Batman snow sculpture

Last year this two-story tall Batman snow sculpture towered over the Totem Pole Ski Shop in Ludlow, Vermont. He melted long ago, but I wouldn't be surprised if the Dark Knight rises once again to battle Mr. Freeze. Geek Mountain State via Nerd Approved

Stay Puft snowman

I tried to think of the most harmless thing. Something that I loved from my childhood. Something that could never possibly destroy us. Mr. Stay Puft Marshmallow Snowman. Actually, what I thought of was a Michelin Man snowman dressed to look like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. I mean, the Michelin Man is all about safety right?  Reddit via Nerd Approved

Dalek snowman

Thankfully, this snowman, Dalek, is a lot less menacing than the real thing. He kept shouting "REFRIGERATE!" so I made an offering of a beer and a box of Hot Pockets. Get Your Nerd On Lolitas

Snowman army

So my friends and I used a snowman for snowball target practice yesterday and ended up knocking its head off. Then my dog peed on it. We all had a good laugh. The next morning I looked out the window and saw this. I spent the rest of the day huddled next to the fireplace with a hair dryer in my hand. 9GAG via CubicleBot

Crashed AT-AT snow fort

Apparently, this vanquished snow AT-AT was more than just an impressive sculpture. You could actually climb inside the head, crawl through the neck up to a deck on the body, then slide down its icy butt. One of the best snow forts ever. Reddit via Nerd Approved

Little girl versus the giant snow robot

Last year Miguel Valenzuela sent us this awesome shot of his daughter taking on a fearsome Valkyrie VF-1S Robotech snow robot. Here we see her about to execute a backflip into a series of furious and deadly karate moves. Nerd Approved

Castle Grayskull igloo

Artist Kilroy III sculpted this magnificent Castle Grayskull igloo complete with indoor lighting. By the power of Grayskull, I have the power … thanks to an extension cord!! Carbon Fibre via Nerd Approved

Spider-Man snowman

Matthew Connor went the extra mile for his 5-year old son by crafting this awesome Spider-Man snow sculpture crawling on a brick wall. Either that, or a burglar dressed as Spider-Man froze overnight. Comics Alliance
