How much?
Only $6.15 each.  Actually, they are only charging for the face value of the stamps.  I thought it would look pretty nice double matted and framed.

I stopped in the PO this morning and picked up my 3 sheets and they look AWESOME in person, so much that i'm thinking about framing a set. The clerk told me that each PO only received a certain amount and they were much more limited than other stamp releases...

Oops, I picked up 10 this morning.  I didn't know there was a limit, and the clerk didn't say anything... I just didn't want to have to mail anything wihout like a C3PO stamp on it for a long time

It's nice having a mother-in-law that works as a postal clerk.  I had five sheets waiting for me when we arrived at her house last night.   ;D

I received the two sheets I preordered last month in the mail today.  These really are nice looking stamps, and I'm starting to think about ordering one of those "uncut" sheets from USPS.com to have framed.

Boy, I'm starting to feel jilted... I ordered mine at the same time and my order hasn't even been processed yet...  Looks like it's time to start sending e-mails to the post office!

I received my pre-ordered stamps and they look awesome.  I like how they are in plastic and packed with cardboard.

The wife keeps joking about using them for some of our thank you cards.  Looks like I might havt to hide them.   ;D

If anyone is interested, the Yoda stamp was released yesterday.  The USPS.com store has the stamps (and other "1st day" commemorative stuff) available online.

Yup, picked up my sheets at our local post office.  I have to order the first-day issue one so it can go with the one I picked up at C4.  As collectible stuff goes, I really like these.  My Dad liked collecting certain stamps so that might have something to do with it, but it's one of the very few things I will  always display.

Picked me up a set the other day too. 

For those displaying them do you guys spray anything to prevent them from discoloring in the future?

I haven't treated any of my stamps (I have several sheets from years past via overseas)....no problems so far but they aren't in a "stamp book" like what my Dad had.  Mine are in between two pieces of glass.  I guess I never thought about it so now I am curious if I should "preserve" them....
