R2D2 has landed in Houston

r2d2_mailboxsmall.jpgThat’s right… C3PO’s faithful little companion ‘bot has been spotted on the streets of Houston. On San Felipe near Post Oak (I didn’t have my camera ready) I spied one of the US Postal Service’s new R2D2 mailboxes. As you can see from the stock photo, they include a website uspsjedimaster.com.

On the site you can see the new Star Wars stamps and vote on which one will be sold by itself. The entire collection will be sold on a single sheet, but the one stamp with the most votes online will be the only one produced separately. For the record, I voted for Boba Fett.


At least the geeks of the world won’t be all that upset about the price of stamps going up to 41 cents.

    I voted for Boba Fett too, he is the coolest one … no doubt. Well, except for maybe the Emperor’s guards. They are pretty awesome as well. Thanks for the info.
