Vote or vote not, there is no try

R2-D2 mailbox Commemorating the 30th Anniversary of Star Wars, the USPS is coming out with Star Wars stamps in May. Woohoo! Limited edition express mail envelopes will also be available and this fact has me contemplating what I should send to myself in express mail. Yes, it’s a great marketing ploy, I am sold.

The site is collecting votes for the stamp that will “reign above all others”.

And now, for only the second time in its 256-year-history, the U.S. Postal Service invites you to vote for your favorite stamp. The winning stamp will become its own stamp sheet.

Cast your vote today. C-3PO seems to be ahead, which is not a horrible choice, but personally I’d rather see either Yoda or Darth Vader win.

More on my dedication to Star Wars in another post.

Thanks to Scott Feldstein for the above photo. Apparently there’s such a mailbox in Palo Alto as well, I’ll have to look for it.

    I found out that two are in Chicago: the entrance to Navy Pier and by Crate & Barrel on Michigan Ave. Also, you can do your own jedimaster R2D2 USPS craft cutout!

    I look forward to the debate whether Episodes I-III are considered canon or whether they are Lucas’s fever-induced nightmares.
