I thought this was going to be about the swimsuits again.  I like those threads.

Something from the Clone Wars would have been a better choice than that stupid thing from Rise of Skywalker.

I loved my IG-88 kenner action figure, but I never saw him moving like that.    If there is one thing The Mandolorian got right, it was how an IG-88 would do combat.

Really, no R5-D4? No AP-5?

And seriously D-0 from Rise of shiatpile?

I looked for these on the USPS site and could not find them anywhere, so well played Obi Wan. Well played.

Great, except I wont be using stamps again until Christmas.

These are the kind of stamps you frame and hang next to your signed Mark Hamill pic from Comic-Con, under your crossed lightsabers display.

I used to have this framed in my office for a couple of years.  Shrug.

What... the hell was the deal with D-0? A movie introduces something like that and spends more than a half-second on it, you expect a reason at some point. Even if it's just a "throw this in for the toys" the writers will, you know, have them do something to justify their being in the film. But no.

In a way I'm glad the franchise went to hell as early as it did, or that might have been me.

Shows what you know. I only have one lightsaber and probably couldn't afford a signed picture of Mark Hamill.

I was expecting them to be Grenada stamps...

That was the best portrayal of a fighting robot I think I've ever seen. Shooting independently and aiming like a targeting computer or, well, aimbot just relentlessly putting shot after shot on the bullseye

Yeah, he didn't move like that in the N64 Shadows of the Empire game. He was still the hardest boss though. I think he flew. Obviously this was a long time ago.

Fallen Order is cannon so I'd have gone with BD-1.

Yes he did fly, you'd pour shots into him and he would just take of vertically, like a f*cking rocket and fill the screen with smoke then he would appear behind you. That motherfarker just wouldn't go down.

I bet there won't be a 0-0-0 stamp.

WilderKWight: I bet there won't be a 0-0-0 stamp.


Meh. It's no C-3PX.

/ The Dark Horse Droids comics are practically the only thing I kept from my collecting-Star-Wars-crap days.
// I really should get rid of them, since digital comics exist.
/// I may still have some of the Tales of the Jedi comics somewhere, too.

I'm not saying it was great writing, or that I disagree that he was thrown in for the toys, but in the movie he has the information that leads them to Exogal

From the Article: Additional details about the new Star Wars droid inspired stamp collection, including the issue date, will be announced later this year.

Thank you. 

Anyway, 2-1B is my boy.  Finally getting his time in the sun.

I feel like they had an IG-88 in Rebels or The Clone Wars... It posed like that.

I don't see HK-47 or G0-T0, so... meh.

Links like this make me think "will I ever use a stamp again"
