Actress Daisy Ridley posed with her character's stamp from the Royal Mail's new Star Wars collection.

Eighteen stamps have been issued to celebrate Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, featuring nine iconic characters from the Star Wars saga films and three from the upcoming release.

Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, Darth Vader, Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Emperor Palpatine, Boba Fett and a stormtrooper feature on the first-class stamps, illustrated by British artist Malcolm Tween.

In a nod to the hotly anticipated seventh film, new characters Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega) and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) have also received their own stamp.

A miniature sheet with six vehicles and spaceships from the series, set against the landscape of the Death Star, has also been released.

The stamps are available at www.royalmail.com/starwars and from 8,000 Post Office branches across the UK.

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens is in cinemas from December 17.
