R2-D2 Themed Mailboxes – Not So Long Ago At A Post Office Not So Far Away…

To help celebrate the 30th anniversary of Star Wars this year the United States Postal Service will be rolling out mailboxes that have been completely wrapped in custom R2-D2 graphics.

They’re not going to fool anyone into thinking it’s an actual astromech droid ready to deliver your postcard to Obi-Wan but they get the idea across. And I think it’s a good idea these will only be appearing at US Post Offices since if they were installed on the streets something tells me they wouldn’t be around for long.

You might also notice that each mailbox has the website on the front. The site doesn’t appear to be live at the moment but it’s obvious the Post Office has even more Star Wars tie-ins planned. I don’t think a forthcoming line of stamps would be a bad guess.
