Nice little download over at starwarskids.

Cool, I'm printing mine now.  It should be a fun craft for my daughter.  ;D

Thanks for the link to the papercraft R2. Cute! 
I've never done the "first day of issue" stamp thing, but I definitely want to get at least one of those for the SW stamps. I know they mail you a special card that cancels the stamp from the official city of issue. 
Have you seen the express mail boxes?  There's three of them -- but of course you have to pre-pay the postage for the box. My husband's already fuming about that. Gotta have 'em, though.
I have a feeling Pensacola won't get one of the R2 mailboxes. If they did, someone would try to steal it or destroy it.
As for the cost of doing that -- the post office will easily make back that money by selling stamps and express mail boxes that will never be used.

Are you guys voting for your favorite stamps every day, or am I the only one dorky enough to do that? 

Because you can vote once per day, you know.  It may seem a little silly, but I gotta do everything I can to help out my boy Luke, 'cause I think he may be in an uphill battle against his daddy.

They may be the leading vote-getters, if the most-recent results page is any indication:

I think it's safe to say that you're the only one here (dare I say cyber-space?) that makes it a daily priority to vote for the Luke Farmboy stamp.

I vote daily, just not for Luke - I want a Leia/R2 stamp :)

                             VOTE FETT '07

If anyone is interested, it looks like you can now preorder the sheets of Star Wars stamps (15).

It's about time the link is up....I've been checking all day!!  They must not realize that some SW fans assume ordering on a certain date means that at 12:01am I want to place my order!!!! :P

This set of stamps will be a neat collectible, so I put in my order too.

Just ordered a set for me and a set for my sister.  I figured I had to pay her back for getting me the silver foil stamps back in the day.  Can't wait to get these.
