Coke robot looks like R2D2 from Star Wars

Coke made these R2D2 like robots in early 1980s for use in promotional appearances. It is remote-controlled with an 8-track player for Coke slogans. The remote can turn the dome around with flashing lights, move the robot and turn on the track player to play the selected track. And on each of its two feets are three Coke bottles.

There is an old electronics shop near Clementi Ave. 2 blk 351 that has a picture of one of these in the window. They claim that in the early 1980s they serviced them.
