Such an odd turn of events. R2-D2 finally getting his props as more than just some beeping robot in Star Wars. These R2-D2 themed mailboxes will help celebrate the 30th anniversary of Star Wars this year, and will be spread across America. They might not be a very accurate depiction of the R2 unit, but then again, what could a droid do with your mail?
The website labeled on the mailboxes, uspsjedimaster.com, is still a dead link so the project is definitely not well known yet or even being publicized. This URL title leads us to believe that the postal service will have more Star Wars themed tie-ins as well, in addition to the R2-D2 boxes. Maybe some Chewbacca stamps? I’ve always thought the wookie was an under appreciated character. — Andrew Dobrow
