Who needs the force, when you've got all this butter on hand (although it's only really a useful weapon if you're fighting someone who's lactose intolerant)! This Star Wars themed sculpture went on show as part of the Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto in 2009.

Robin Hood actor Kevin Costner has also had the honour of being made out of butter for the Iowa State Fair back in 2014. This scene was made to recreate a scene from a film called Field of Dreams. although to be honest we'd rather see a Robin Hood made from butter. Imagine how difficult it would be to make a bow and arrow out out of butter!
