First the R2-D2 mailbox and now a Yoda stamp, snail mail isn’t that bad after all. The sad part is that Artoo will be off the streets from October 25.
America voted, and the U.S. Postal Service will deliver the intergalactic results on Oct. 25, when an image of 900-year-old Jedi Master Yoda will be dedicated as a sheet of 20 stamps in New York City at Madison Square Garden. Since this 10 a.m. event is just six days before Halloween, stamp enthusiasts and Star Wars fans alike are encouraged to dress up as their favorite character from the Star Wars saga.
Since March, 400 mail collection boxes across the country have been dressed as the beloved R2-D2. But now it’s time for Artoo to get back to his droid duties. Oct. 25 will mark Artoo’s last appearance on street corners. In the weeks following, these temporarily decorated collection boxes will be moved from the busy streets of America to military bases overseas.
