I always wonder how much the government had to pay Disney for the rights to make cards like this. Do they really make their money back on people collecting the stamps?

No Luke? No Vader? What is this, some kind of Disney “reimagining,” like they did to The Little Mermaid?

I was just wondering the exact opposite: does Disney pay the Royal Mail for what is essentially advertising for their films?

There are other sets with the other characters…

Just a guess, but they may not be able to use the stamps with actual actors’ likenesses in advertising.

My case is why I’m against graphic tees actually: Why would you want me to pay you to wear your company logo on my chest?


#8

Bit of both, I think.
