Star Wars postal stamps

We have three boys in the house (that's counting me). And we are all Star Wars fanatics. Which is why getting a hold of the US Postal Service's tribute to Star Wars thrilled me.

There are 14 stamps of 41c each (the new internal postal rates). The artwork is classic Star Wars and rendered by Drew Struzan. The stamps depict Darth Vadar, the Millenium Falcon, the battle on Mustafar, Luke Skywalker, Padmé Amidala, Obi-wan Kenobi (Alec Guiness), C3PO, Darth Maul, an X-wing fighter, Han Solo and Chewbacca, Emperor Palpatine, Princess Leia programming her plea for help into R2D2, Yoda, stormtroopers and my very personal favorite - Boba Fett.

If you flip each stamp, you'll get concise text explaining the depiction on the stamp. If you buy all the stamps in a single sheet ($6.15) you'll get bonus artwork that bleeds outside the sheet.

Go get!
