BB-8 Snowman on Reddit by absolutecorey

Actor Peter Mayhew loved their snowy depiction.

Two Star Wars fans have made an epic BB-8 snowman and Chewbacca has given it the thumbs up.

These Massachusetts kids made the most of the blizzard with their huge model of The Force Awakens droid, and Reddit user absolutecorey uploaded a photo of them posing proudly in front of it. 

But eagle-eyed Redditors noticed Peter Mayhew - the actor who plays Chewbacca - commented on the picture and gave it his stamp of approval.

We all know it's not wise to upset a Wookiee, so we imagine Star Wars fans everywhere are breathing a sigh of relief.

Meanwhile, these guys aren't the only ones who've expressed their BB-8 love through the medium of snow. 

OK, so it's not as big, but it is to scale!
