Though #ForceFriday is over, I think it’s acceptable to celebrate Star Wars every Friday. So that’s just what I’m going to do with this piece of news: the UK’s national postal organization, The Royal Mail, is issuing Star Wars stamps due to arrive next month.

 

The collection will feature 18 stamps emblazoned with characters from the original series like Yoda, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, and Han Solo, but will also include newcomers like Finn, Rey, and Kylo Ren.

 

The stamps are illustrated by British artist Malcolm Tween and according to StarWars.com, “each portrait is like a Jedi’s vision – showing the future, the past, new things, and different places from the legendary saga.”

 

There will also be a mini sheet of six stamps containing detailed illustrations of classic Star Wars vehicles brought together by a backdrop of the Death Star.

 

Multiple combinations of the stamp sets are available for pre-order on the Royal Mail’s website, including character stamp sets, stamp sheets featuring the vehicles, and even framed sets.

 

The stamps will be released on October 20.
