If you live in the UK, you’re not just lucky because you have a wealth of history, wonderful television, and great tea. You’re also about to get some fabulous Star Wars stamps.

Most of these stamps feature characters from the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi: Maz Kanata, Chewbacca, Supreme Leader Snoke, BB-8, R2-D2, C-3PO, and Porgs. <record scratch> Wait…Porgs?

For those of us who have been eschewing Last Jedi spoilers, Porgs are a bird-like species resident to the planet Ahch-To, where Luke Skywalker has spent the past thirty years rethinking his life. They’re cute as heck, as you can see from the motion video.

But to quote Sesame Street, one of these things is not like the other. One of the stamps features K-2S0, from the non-sequential Star Wars film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Still, if anyone from Rogue One deserves a stamp, it’s the lippy K-2.

The stamps, created by digital artist Malcolm Tween, cost £6.50 ($8.40, depending on the exchange rate). If you want a fancy framed set, it’ll set you back £40 ($51.80), and a metal set goes for £19.99 ($25.90) and up. A BB-8 display will run you £10 ($13).

Philatelists can pre-order stamps here.
