Looks like it's time to get a pen pal in the UK as the Royal Mail has just introduced a new Star Wars Stamp Collection. Set to launch October 20, the UK's mail service will introduce 18 new stamps, featuring the series' top characters, including Darth Vader, Yoda, Obi Wan Kenobi, Stormtroopers, Han Solo, Princess Leia, Darth Sidious, Luke Skywalker, Boba Fett, Rey, Fin and Kylo Ren. British artist Malcolm Tween designed the stamps for the Royal Mail and their introduction will only serve to continue to fan the hype ahead of the latest film in the series, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, especially with three of the characters featured coming from the upcoming film. The collection is finished with a sheet of six additional stamps with detailed images of six Star Wars vehicles and spaceships. The entire collection will go on sale October 20 at the service's 8,000 post offices and their online store.
