Politics aside, I'm a sucker for picking up the USPS's genre-related releases. I've got a solid handful of Superman ones as well as some Star Trek ones in my collection, and now the Postmaster General is asking Star Wars fans to pony up some real scratch (link here) with the U.S. government's forthcoming issuance of their Star Wars Droids line-up. The release will feature nine fabulous droids and one real stinker (JJ's tepidly useless BB-8), and unlike other sets I've seen it would appear that these are indeed Forever stamps, meaning you can lock in your postage savings today by investing in continuing to use the U.S. Post Office tomorrow.
Plus, they make great gifts! I kid, I kid ...
For collectors, these are spiffy, and be sure to check your local post office as it's not unheard of that they offer related posters and postcards following up this initial release. A poster commemorating this printing would be a solid add to anyone's collection.
As always, thanks for reading ... and live long and prosper!
