New USPS R2-D2 Mailboxes


Call me crazy, but I woke up in the middle of the night today to go see the installation of the new Postal Service R2-D2 mailbox in San Francisco at 6 AM. These mailboxes are popping up around the U.S. in conjunction with the 30th anniversary of the Star Wars movie. There is a rumor that on March 28th, the Postal Service will release a Star Wars stamp; thus, the new drop box promotion. After 3 weeks, these mailboxes will be removed, re-painted back to Postal Service Blue, and placed back into service as regular ho-hum drop boxes.

Let me know if you see one in your neighborhood.

I don't know for sure, but I think the cost might be paid by the company asking the USPS to advertise for them?
