Though this technically isn’t a gadget, we know every geek loves some Star Wars news! This summer, you’ll be able to pick up Yoda, Luke, and Leia all in the form of postal stamps. To celebrate the countless years of Star Wars in pop-culture, the US Postal Service will be issuing 15 unique stamps that feature different Star Wars characters. The set will go on sale May 25th and each stamp will cost 41 cents a piece (yes, they’re raising prices again). Says David Failor of the USPS:
“Because of the movies’ popularity, we believe these stamps have the potential of reaching the blockbuster status of the Elvis stamp, a milestone only the Force could attempt to surpass,”
Special sheets featuring all the stamps will be available, as well as pre-paid Express Mail packaging that will feature popular Wars characters. You can even vote for your favorite stamp at this USPS website! Talk about Star Wars excitement. If only we had the power of the force to skip those long lines whenever we visit our Post Office.
