United Kingdom: Star Wars 40th Anniversary

 I finally managed to get this for my collection and I am very happy! The UK’s national post service company, Royal Mail, issued 18 Star Wars stamps on 20.10.2015. The stamps, illustrated by British artist Malcolm Tween, depict nine characters from the first six films and three from the forthcoming episode, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Each portrait is like a Jedi’s vision — showing the future, the past, new things, and different places from the legendary saga.

There is also a Miniature Sheet of six stamps featuring intricately detailed illustrations of iconic Star Wars vehicles, brought together against a backdrop of the dreaded Death Star.
