the united states postal service (USPS) has announced a set of stamps featuring the dazzling star wars beloved droids. representing more than four decades of innovation and storytelling, the droids featured in this pane of 20 stamps are IG-11, R2-D2, K-2SO, D-O, L3-37, BB-8, C-3PO, a GNK (or gonk) power droid, 2-1B surgical droid and C1-10P, commonly known as ‘chopper.’ all characters are shown against backgrounds representing settings of memorable adventures.

 

‘R2-D2 once delivered the death star plans to the rebellion; soon, the plucky astromech — and nine other star wars droids — will help your mail reach its destination, too.’

the star wars droid stamps by the USPS are a nod to lucasfilm’s, as well as its parent company, disney’s, commitment to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) learning and the continued collaboration between ‘star wars: force for change’ and global pre-K-12 nonprofit organization FIRST (for inspiration and recognition of science and technology). both have joined forces to expand access to STEM learning to more young people and to help them envision a brighter future.
