Yoda gets his own stamps courtesy of the US Postal Service.

The US Postal Service will be going intergalactic on October 25th 2007, when an image of 900-year-old Jedi Master Yoda will be dedicated as a sheet of 20 stamps in New York City at Madison Square Garden.

Since this 10 a.m. event is six days before Halloween, stamp enthusiasts and Star Wars fans alike are being encouraged to dress up as their favourite character from the Star Wars Saga.

The full US Star Wars stamp collection, which depicts 15 images from the movie, will stay on sale until May 25th, 2008, while the single Yoda stamp that goes on sale October 25th will remain available through October 25th 2008.

You can see images of the stamps over at http://www.usps.com/communications/newsroom/2007stamps/
