The US Postal Service has revealed a new set of Star Wars stamps focusing on the droids from that galaxy far, far away. The set includes 10 character-inspired stamps featuring droids from across the franchise's entire history. Those droids include IG-11, R2-D2, K-2SO, D-O, L3-37, BB-8, C-3PO, a gonk droid, 2-1B surgical droid, and Chopper. Each droid is set against a background representing a setting from the Star Wars universe. Choosing droids as the theme is intended as a nod to Lucasfilm and Disney's efforts to support science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) learning through the continuing collaboration between Star Wars: Force for Change and global pre-K-12 nonprofit organization FIRST.
Lucasfilm is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2021. Greg Breeding designed the stamps. William Gicker was the art director. Additional details about the new Star Wars droids-inspired stamp collection, including a release date, are coming later this year. Keep reading to see the new stamps for yourself
