US Mail Posts Star Wars
The United States Postal Service has gone overboard in celebrating 30 years of Star Wars movies. Not only is it introducing about 400 R2-D2 post boxes (CLICK), but also a set of 15 stamps showing Star Wars characters, such as Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia. The stamps go on sale on 25 May. There are also Star Wars envelopes and, if you click the title link, you can download a Star Wars desktop piccie (illustration showing Darth Vader). You can also vote for your favourite stamp from the new collection. Hint: post your first day covers somewhere in the Galactic Empire or in the Rebel Alliance. And may the force be with you.
