Eagle-eyed fans are theorizing that the latest Star Wars: The Last Jedi poster holds a hidden homage to franchise villain Darth Vader.

The Stormtrooper version is meant to look like a white and black Stormtrooper helmet. It even has an app that lets you control the droids and are compatible with Google Assistant and Alexa.

In the wake of the new trailer for the upcoming film "Star Wars: The Last Jedi", Samsung seeks to get in on the action by releasing its limited edition Star Wars-themed vacuum cleaners. The VR7000 robot vacuum cleaner is offered in two different styles, Darth Vader and Stormtrooper.

As well as the external likeness to Star Wars characters, they both also feature unique sound effects.

Gucci to go fur free in 2018
Gucci's move follows a similar initiative by Italian rivals Armani, which a year ago pledged to drop fur from its collections. Bizzarri told Vogue of the decision: "We've been talking about it, Alessandro [Michele] and I, for a few months".

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

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

Pre-orders for the special Star Wars limited edition POWERbot™ will begin on the Samsung.com website on October 10, with availability in the United States. The Visionary Mapping Plus feature enables the vacuum to work autonomously by mapping the room and finding the fastest cleaning routes.

The Vader POWERbot also comes with Wi-Fi connectivity and a remote control; Samsung doesn't say why the robot needs the remote but there's a good chance you'll soon be able to see YouTube videos of tech pranksters freaking out cats and bothering dogs with the Vader bot. The Darth Vader edition sells for $799, while the Stormtrooper version is priced at $699.
