good evening! so this morning there was a bunch of hoopla (aka traffic) in front of grauman’s chinese theater on hollywood blvd when the united states postal service (gosh who doesn’t love when the mail comes?!?) launched their new collection of star wars stamps in celebration of the series’ 30th anniversary! there’s fifteen in all (pictured below) and will be available for purchase starting on may 26th!
plus if you head over to usps jedi master you can vote for your favorite (time is ticking…less than sixty days left to cast your vote) the winning stamp will be made into its very own sheet! (i’m totally voting for yoda) this is only the second time in the post office’s 256 years (damn that’s a long ass time) where the public has been offered the chance to vote for a stamp (the first time was for the elvis presley stamp back in ’92) i’ll admit i’m not a fan of star wars at all but i’m such a sucker for a hot new stamp release! popbytes over & out for now…xxoo! (many thanks to my pals brent & tina who snapped the pictures from this morning)
