Star Wars droids are everywhere nowadays. The likes of R2-D2 and C-3PO were once confined to the movie screen. But with toys, of course, the droids got a new life, movie after movie. And not only are there action figures of these Star Wars droids as well as Funko Pops!, plushies and even buildable ones at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge — but, now, these droids are also going to be featured on a new line of stamps from the U.S. Postal Service. revealed the news today, noting they were designed by Greg Breeding and art director William Gicker. So in case you can’t email, text or send a message via datapad to your recipient, the droids of Star Wars can now help you with delivering your snail-mail!

Included in this pack are several droids from across all movies. Of course, there’s the famous R2-D2 and C-3PO, the ones who have been there from the very beginning. There’s also the droids featured in the sequel movies: the adorably round BB-8 and the pointy little D-0. Then, from the spinoff movies, there’s Solo’s L3-37 (the eventual voice of the Millenium Falcon) as well as Rogue One’s K-2SO.

Finally, in this pack, there’s The Mandalorian’s IG-11 and Chopper, a Gonk droid, and a 2-1B droid. Just be careful when placing your letter in the mailbox — you don’t want to mistake that for a droid as well!
