    Wouldn't Gonk be a more practical shape for personal mailboxes?

    Compared to R2 how many people would know who Gonk/Power droid is.

    I saw the post box today! I seriously never knew there was a post office there before...I've been to that intersection many times, but never saw the post office, just the Johnny Rockets. Anyhow, it was pretty neat looking (I didn't take any pictures though, Hal ;) ).

    ok, this is a last minute event, but its gonna be great! The postmaster contacted Neil in Pheonixabout an appearance for the official unveiling of the Star Wars Stamps, but everyone is going to CIV so he told them he couldnt do it! So this is going to be a Fan Force save,
    so far it looks like me, Antone, Frank,a nd possibly the Bylars will make it, and Vader is going to do the official unveiling! There will be media, so it s agreat opportunity.

    If you can make it its going to be at he Cherrybelll main post office at

    Cherrybell Station at 1501 S. Cherrybell Stravenue, this is just east of S. Kino off of E. 22nd St.

    Just got back from the event and I would say this was a success for the TFF.

    All four tvnews stations showed up and the TucsonCit newspaper.

    The staff was great and even had the "guys" sit at the Postmaster's desk (he is on vacation) and pose for a pic for him. Anthony, Dustin, Steve and Jen did a great job and the director was very pleased with them. He invited us to come back in Sept. when they reveal the stamp winner.

    ok they gave us a flash of half of a second on ch 9 lol, better than nothin i guess the rest of the channels just cut us out completely :( so at least channel 9 came thru for a quick glimpse of me and youndgragon (jenny), that made her feel better at least.

    I jsut wanted to give Kudos to who ever put this together. I know it was last min. and it was a huge undertaking.
    Kudos to all that "trooped" the event and represented the TFF is such a glowing fashion!

    Thanks, but without Antone being Vader, or the Bylar ministry there for saber support it would not have happened, Ive uploaded the rest of the tv spots tot he photobucket site.

    Maybe I really am a Star Wars Geek.

    I've mentioned this to a few of you.

    The Post Office screwed up. If you look at the Han Solo and Chewbacca stamp, Han has a blaster in his hand. Only it is NOT his blaster pistol. It is a stormtrooper blaster. The stamp image is based on the classic picture of Han and Chewie, in which Han has his blaster pistol.

    I'd of thought somebody would have caught that before they printed them up.

    Ha! I never even noticed, but you are right, Mr. Wookiee, that is definitely not Han's blaster.

    So far I've not seen anyone else mention the mistake.

    He must have a keen Wookiee-eye.
