Limited Edition Star Wars Stamps

Royal Mail have just unveiled some Star Wars commemorative stamps.

In the exciting lead up to the new Star Wars film the Royal Mail have have released some special stamps to commemorate the release of The Last Jedi on 12th October.

The shiny new stamps designed by Malcolm Tween feature eight characters from the sci-fi film franchise but dont worry they don't give away any spoilers about the plot and feature no new characters.

Specially picked to appear on the stamps are familiar characters from a galaxy far far away we all know and love. From top left clockwise is R2-D2, BB8, K2SO, C3PO, a porg, Supreme Leader Snoke, Maz and Chewbacca.

If you're a Star Wars fan and are wondering what on earth a Porg is then you'll be excited to hear that these adorable balls of fluff are new aliens that will appear in the next instalment of the Star Wars films. 

If you bag the limited edition collection now they could be worth a pretty penny in a few years as Star Wars merchandise and memorabilia is notorious for fetching a lot of money years down the line.

For example, a toy Jawa (a tiny hooded alien from the films) that you could have bought at the local newsagents for 99p in the 1970's has been spotted on eBay for as much as $53,000.

So even if you're not a big Star Wars fan, it might be worth a trip to the Post Office after all!
