Default Postal Force Joins 'Star Wars'

The U.S. Postal Service plans to mark the 30th anniversary of the release of the original Star Wars with a commemorative set of stamps featuring characters from the movie. The set, which will bear the new 41-cent first-class rate, is set to go on sale on May 25, eleven days after the postage hike takes effect. USPS Stamp Services director David Fallor told the BBC Wednesday, "We believe these stamps have the potential of reaching the blockbuster status of the [1993] Elvis stamp." Terms of the postal service's licensing deal with Lucasfilm, which owns the rights to the Star Wars characters, were not disclosed.

Not only that but many many of the standard blue Postal boxes are going to be painted to look like R2-D2:

Yes, but that would be much more than just simple theft. Messing with the mail is a federal crime - one they are VERY keen to prosecute to the fullest. So any such theft would be a VERY big deal. Whoa to the idiot who does try to take one. Would almost be like messing with the IRS.

Just not something you want to do.
