well the first time I thought it was a joke but they must be for real!

alice said...

Au secours! C'est une invasion!

Jazzy said...

haha great, looks like r2d2 =)

Ham said...

I'm with Alice here - to the trenches!

Eric said...

These seem to be all over america now. Marketing at its best.

Kate said...

If the theme day USA photos are any indication, you're right--they must be all over!

Ben said...

Very nice. I'm following a link from no.1 and this is the 3rd R2D2. It's must be very popular, but no other characters from show?

denton said...

Yes, it is an invasion ... I had really not paid any attention to the new mailbox until it came time to find a photo.

Cowbark said...

Ben - I WISH they had done other characters. I can see how R2 lends himself to look like a mailbox more than the others, but still.

Alice & Ham - it is quite the invasion, but R2 is friendly, remember!? Unless you're on the dark side......

edwin s said...

R2D2 Does the USA! The third one I've seen today and it's just as fun as the first one.

Philly said...

I must get out more! The only mail boxes I have noticed those outside of the post office. The mail boxes on the corners have slowly disappeared, without notice until I go to mail a card.

Maybe at the post office I'll find one today? (suburbs of Philly)

Zsolt said...

wow..this is supermodern:)

Cowbark said...

Philly - If you look at the site that's on the R2 mailbox they have a list of locations, you might find one in Philly!

Carol E. said...

I'm beginning to see why people are calling this an invasion......

Sally said...

Is the USPS sponsoring George Lucas or Vice versa??? Can we expect C-3PO along to clear it?

Tomate Farcie said...

Awww, that's OK: the more the merrier! Look on the bright side, at least, they don't have a picture of a certain President on it. :)

Bleeding Orange said...

Advertising at its best...

Nathalie in Sydney said...

Au moins ca nous confirme que ce n'est pas un poisson d'avril, ce que j'avais imaginé une minute...

Le même poisson d'avril dans plusieurs villes différentes, non !

Ah pub, quand tu nous tiens !
J'avais imaginé une boite sponsorée par MacDo avec un grand M jaune sur ma boite a lettres rouge, finalement j'ai fait autre chose...
