'Dragon Ball' heats up festival with enormous snow sculpture

The anime series Dragon Ball Super takes center stage Friday with this gigantic snow sculpture at the 67th Sapporo Snow Festival in Sapporo, Japan.

Drawing more than 2 million visitors each year, the event sees the city transformed into a winter wonderland with hundreds of snow statues and ice sculptures created at three sites.

To get a sense of the scale of the Dragon Ball Super sculpture, just look at the photos of its construction, which required massive scaffolding, and dump trucks and heavy equipment to haul and pile up the snow. According to Kotaku, the sculpture was finished on Wednesday.

The Sapporo Snow Festival runs through Feb. 18.
