From a galaxy far, far away…to your mailbox and just like we’ve been talking about on ShowMeSciFi for weeks.

For only the second time in its 256-year-history, the U.S. Postal Service is letting Americans vote for your favorite stamp. The winning stamp will become its own stamp sheet. The choice is from one of 15 iconic images: Darth Vader, Yoda, Luke Skywaker, Princess Leia and others

So far Vader is in the lead !

Star Wars fans everywhere will delight in the issuance of these exciting new postage stamps,” said David Failor, executive director of Stamp Services, U.S. Postal Service, who hosted the stamp preview. “Because of the movies’ popularity, we believe these stamps have the potential of reaching the blockbuster status of the Elvis stamp, a milestone only the Force could attempt to surpass. The Star Wars films have timeless qualities that cross generations, just like the United States Postal Service,” said Failor, who made the announcement of the new Star Wars stamps along with R2-D2, Darth Vader and Howard Roffman, president Lucas Licensing.

Voting for the most popular Star Wars stamp will take place online at beginning today, March 28, through May 23. The winning stamp will be announced at the first-day-of-issue ceremony on May 25.
