More MF Goodies for the philatalists among us.


Again, i found some more stamps on ebay based on the Millennium Falcon. These are a bit expensive for me so i shall be passing for the time being until i run out of other bits and bobs. Still, for the Star Wars stamp collectors who don’t have them, they’re ideal.

About mffanrodders

A keen Star Wars collector since 1977, my collection focus seems to have taken on a turn towards Han Solo's iconic Star Ship. Why the Millennium Falcon? No one else seemed to have one at the time and it was fair to say that i had difficulty resisting the higher end models. My friend, icruise from Rebelscum has a superb blog for his Jabba the Hutt collection, I thought that i'd start this blog to chart my own collection of Millennium Falcon related stuff as it increases. Well, that was the plan but it now seems to be more about cataloguing any Millennium Falcon item in general now so that i can come back to them later.

    Keep in mind that these are custom stamps, so they could have anything on them. You can even make ones with your kids on them. These are different from ones officially put out by the post office (they have scanner codes to their right) so I wouldn’t really consider them collectibles.

    Cool, thanks for teh Heads up. I’m surprised that they’d be allowed to do something like that. Doesn’t the post office object?

    No, it’s sanctioned by the post office as far as I know. I seem to recall seeing a kit for sale at the post office a while back that would allow you to make your own. But of course you have to have that ugly bar code on them, so they’re not quite like real stamps.

    Even without the barcodes, it’s just not the same. For me a lot of collecting is about the anticipation. It sort of takes the fun out of it when you can just get what you want printed to order.

    Yeah, I enjoy seeing the kind of odd-ball products that companies made. They had to think that they would be at least somewhat popular with a fair number of people or they wouldn’t have bothered putting them into mass production. Kind of like that Jabba the Hutt robe I just got. The Ewok robe they made is understandable, but you wouldn’t think Jabba would be that appealing a character for kids.

    If it was a robe that you could just put any image on, it wouldn’t have nearly as much appeal to me as a collector.
