It’s 10 years since the third prequel Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith was released and excitement built for the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The release date of the film was 17th December, and the Star Wars stamp collection featuring 18 special stamps are still on sale.
The story behind the Star Wars stamp designs
The Star Wars stamp collection is now available for next day delivery here at the Post Office Shop. 18 Star Wars first-class stamps illustrated by British artist Malcolm Tween feature some of the iconic characters, vehicles and spaceships from the first six Star Wars films. Each character stamp also includes a secondary Star Wars character or scene in the lower right hand corner.
Ilustrator Malcolm Tween has depicted Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Stormtrooper, Princess Leia, The Emperor and Boba Fett from the original trilogy along with Finn, Rey and Kylo Ren who are the new main characters in the film Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
