  • Darth Vader Battlefront 2

But of course, being a limited edition Star Wars version you expect it to do something neat.

If you've lamented the lack of Star Wars-themed home cleaning appliances, then Samsung has just the robot vacuums for you.

The Darth Vader version of the POWERbot™ features a specially created cover using custom premium materials that resembles Darth Vader's all-black mask while the Stormtrooper version replicates the look of a white and black Stormtrooper's helmet. The vacuum with Darth Vader and Stormtrooper designs is intended for fans in anticipation of the December release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

There is one key difference that sets these models apart from the standard Samsung PowerBot vacuum, though - they come pre-loaded with Star Wars phrases and music that will play as they clean.

"We are confident the Star Wars limited edition of the VR7000 will be a big hit". Both versions produce sounds associated with their respective character.

The Stormtrooper calls out "Let's go!" when it begins cleaning.

The Darth Vader version makes the Sith lord's trademark heavy breathing sound.

The Darth Vader version goes on preorder October 10th in the US for about $800, and it comes with Wi-Fi connectivity and its own remote.

There's nothing new other than the cosmetic changes.

Both robot vacuums feature 10-Watt suction power, CycloneForce technology and the ability to clean close to walls and edges.

The POWERbot VR7000 is available in Australia, but whether Samsung will bring the Darth Vader or Storm Trooper models here is yet to be announced. You can preorder both now at the Samsung website; the estimated ship date is November 5th at the time of writing.
