Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi! You’re our only mailman!

We were pretty psyched to get an early peek at the R2D2 mailboxes that the USPS distributed through the U.S. to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the series, along with Star Wars themed postage stamps. Some creative Flickr user decided to make the best of the themed boxes and scored some interestingness points on Flickr because of it. Sheer genius! ...
