R2d2_pedalbinStar Wars, as we all know, is the king of merchandising. Quite a lot of it is complete tat aimed at 10 year olds… but occassionally, you get a diamond amongst the rough.

This particular gem comes in the form of a pedal bin shaped like R2-D2. The Artoo bin is made by Japanese company Heart, but is being imported to various countries at the moment – including the UK. It stands 24 inches tall, has a foot lever that flips open R2’s head for your waste and a removable interior for ease of emptying. You can order one now, but it’s not cheap. Currently going for £99.
