Royal Mail Star Wars 40th Anniversary Collector's Set

Postby TheJabbaWookie » Tue Aug 15, 2017 1:55 pm

I got my Royal Mail 40th Anniversary Collector's Set through the post today and have to say I was very impressed with it.

Comes packaged like a record with album cover and sleeve, and contains six original stamps in a 40th Anniversary presentation card and six 12 inch prints.

It does look a great set.
I was debating this or the framed set... Still not sure.

Really nice set.

Although I'm not sure if Luke Jedi should be on the Vader one.

Thanks for posting, looks really nice.

That is a sweet set. Seen thousands of Star Wars stamp sets over the years and is art is probably the best.

Yep mine arrived the other day, a cracking collection. Slightly annoyed by the minor damage in transit, a corner has taken a beating :cry:
If its Luke Jedi then I'm interested, vintage or modern.

Boo. You'd think Royal Mail would know how to package and deliver their own stuff.

They've just brought out a Classic Toys set too exploring the origins of the British Toy Industry with Spirograph, Stickle Bricks, Spacehopper, Action Man and Hornby.
