Certainly looks better than the stuff our Royal Mail comes up with, but that's just the way I'm biased.

SHINOBU STAMP! Shocked

There must be a way I can order these online. Anyone? I can't read that page to save my life.

Those are nice, I don't think I'd mind a set myself.

The only thing better would be a new series...

Oh sure, feature Unit 1's Shinobu Nagumo, but no stamp just for Unit 2's puppet master, Captain Gotoh? The man deserves his own series of stamps, and he's barely on one, crowded in with others.

I've always liked Akemi Takada's more realistic rendering of the characters and love when they integrate an image with both her and Izubuchi/Tajima doing the mecha. For this reason I like the BVUSA standard edition movie covers more than the boxed set covers.

Speaking of stamps, there was a stamp collectors convention right across street from Anime Expo (was it 2003?)
