Star Wars stamps in the U.S.

Filed under: Geek — SFG @ 13:08

Further to this post, I can now confirm that the Star Wars stamps will be going on sale in the U.S. on the 25th of May.

The individual stamps will feature :
-Darth Vader
-Yoda
-Obi-Wan Kenobi
-Han Solo and Chewbacca
-Anakin Skywalker fighting Obi-Wan Kenobi
-Queen Padme Amidala
-Luke Skywalker
-Princess Leia Organa with R2-D2
-Emperor Palpatine
-Darth Maul
-Imperial Stormtroopers

Darth Vader, Yoda to be featured in Star Wars stamp set

David Failor, of the US Postal Service, said the Star Wars characters would ensure the stamps will be a hit.

“These stamps are really going to capture the imagination of the American people,” he said. “The whole Star Wars saga is iconic. To be able to capture their image on the postal stamps is a big deal. A lot of attention is being paid to it.”
