Details: This Star Wars Droids Pane of 20 US postage stamps depicts images of Droids the marvelous mechanical characters inspired by a galaxy far, far away, have entertained and inspired for more than four decades. The US Post Office celebrates these wondrous creations with a pane of 20 stamps featuring 10 favorite droids. Moviegoers were first immersed in the Star Wars galaxy in 1977. The first film’s opening moments recount the misadventures of droids R2-D2 and C-3PO stranded on the desert planet Tatooine. Ever since, Artoo, Threepio, and numerous other Star Wars? mechanicals have been key to many thrilling adventures. No other film fiction had ever portrayed artificial intelligence so developed and varied. Aside from the awe-inspiring designs of the droids, much of their appeal derives from their relatability as characters. Droids often exhibit free will, emotion, and funny, quirky personalities by-products of accumulated exploits and cobbled-together programming. Grouped in four rows of five, the stamps vary in height to best suit the proportions of each droid. Individual characters are set against soft-focus backgrounds that evoke settings of memorable adventures. Greg Breeding was the designer of the stamps and pane, and William Gicker was art director. The Star War Droids stamps are forever going to be equal to the current one ounce First-Class domestic postage price.
