These Are The Droids You Are Looking For

On May the 4th the USPS will be launching a new set of stamps inspired by Modesto’s very own George Lucas epic serial Star Wars. The main post office on Kearney will be rolling them out in celebratory fashion so make sure to stop on by the post office during business hours. The characters fans meet in the first “Star Wars” film, “Star Wars: A New Hope,” are droids, namely C-3PO and R2-D2 and droids have continued to play pivotal roles throughout the “Star Wars” galaxy. With 10 dazzling new character-inspired stamps, the Postal Service salutes beloved droids from the “Star Wars” galaxy and the imagination that brings these technological marvels to the screen. Representing more than four decades of innovation and storytelling, the droids featured in each pane of 20 stamps are IG-11, R2-D2, K-2SO, D-O, L3-37, BB-8, C-3PO, a GNK (or Gonk) power droid, 2-1B surgical droid and C1-10P, commonly known as “Chopper.” #HomeofStarWars
