In commemoration of the 30th anniversary of the release of Star Wars: A New Hope, the United States Postal Service will be releasing 15 Star Wars postage stamps. You can vote for your favorite stamp and play a Star Wars/USPS trivia game to win a trip to Celebration IV Star Wars convention.

This is all in addition to the R2-D2 mailboxes that were rolled out two weeks ago. There are only 320 such droids throughout the country:

    Very nice! I'll have to see if I can find any close to where I live… May the Force be with you — always!

    BTW, I'm sure you're aware of Lucasfilm's planned Star Wars television series: One is a computer-animated sequel of sorts to Tartakovsky's Clone Wars cartoons, and the other will be a live-action series set in the period between Episodes III and IV, not unlike The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles. The less well-advised (IMO) Indiana Jones IV is also moving forward…. -Gene
