yoda stampJudge him not by his size — the tiny Jedi Master wins big in an online poll to select which Star Wars character gets its own stamp.

The United States Postal Service (USPS) announced today that the Star Wars character Yoda will be featured on a single stamp to be issued later this summer.

The Jedi Master received the most votes in a 2-month-long online poll the USPS held asking Americans to choose which image from their commemorative Star Wars 15-stamp sheet, which was unveiled on March 28, 2007, should be selected to appear on its own stamp.

The commemorative stamps, which were painted by artist Drew Struzan, feature images from all six movies in the Star Wars saga, one of which was of the winning image of the diminutive Yoda holding his signature walking stick.

The Yoda stamp as well as the commemorative sheet set are all part of the USPS’s participation in the Star Wars 30th anniversary event, which celebrates the release of the original movie. To kick off the celebration earlier this year, the USPS also rolled out mailboxes across the country made to look like R2-D2 and offered prepaid Express envelopes with Star Wars-themed images.
