The US Postal Service unveiled a set of 15 commemorative Star Wars stamps over the weekend. And proving that ‘size matters not’ when it comes to popularity, Americans voted Yoda as the character most deserving of a single-character stamp, which will be issued later this summer.

The current stamps feature images from all six Star Wars movies. An uncut press sheet (three panes of the 15 stamps) will set you back US$18.45. May 25, 2007 marked the 30th anniversary of the US debut of Star Wars Episode IV: A new hope; it launched in just 32 theaters before striking box office gold.
