Have you ever wished for Darth Vader to clean your living room?

"We are confident the Star Wars limited edition of the VR7000 will be a big hit".

A Darth Vader version comes with Wi-Fi connectivity and own remote control, while a Stormtrooper model is designed around the iconic helmet of a soldier of the Empire. There are two different designs: Darth Vader retails for $799, while his Stormtrooper counterpart retails for $699.

Mini-figures, phone cases, fancy dress; these are the things you'd normally expect find toting Star Wars inspired designs, not a Samsung robot vacuum.

You can control them via an app or with Alexa voice commands, but what sets these hoovers apart is their sound effects. For example, when powering on the Darth Vader unit, the vacuum will play and mimic the character's infamous breathing.

VR7000 Star Wars limited edition includes all the core cleaning technologies that Samsung has introduced with the original VR7000m including the CycloneForce technology, the Edge Clean Master, and a suction power of 10 watts.

Pre-orders for the special Star Wars limited edition POWERbotâ„¢ will begin on the Samsung.com website on October 10, with availability in the United States.

They can also remember your rooms through Visionary Mapping Plus technology and come with plenty of other smart features to boot.

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

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.
