Who says stamps aren’t marvellous anymore? Pos Malaysia Berhad (Pos Malaysia) has launched its first-ever Marvel Super Hero-themed stamp series in collaboration with The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia.
The limited edition Marvel Super Hero Stamp Set pays homage to the Marvel comic books in conjunction with Marvel’s 80th Anniversary this year, with 10 stamps featuring fan-favourite Marvel heroes such as Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Black Widow, and Black Panther, as well as villains Loki and Thanos.
The complete Marvel Super Hero folder set consists of two sheets of perforated stamps, one imperforated stamp, two souvenir covers, two post cards and one folder. The price of the complete set is RM120 each.
Unlike the usual special stamp issuance, this collection which is a Setem Ku series will only be available for purchase in a complete folder set. It will not be sold separately. Due to its exclusive nature, this limited edition stamp series will be available for pre-sale starting tomorrow, 4 July 2019 by pre-purchasing it at all 13 General Post Offices nationwide or via the online store at www.eziemall.com.
In a press release, Pos Malaysia’s Group CEO, Syed Md. Najib Syed Md. Noor hopes that the introduction of such stamps would attract younger generation to collect stamps and rejuvenate the interest in stamp collecting.
“This stamp collection is undoubtedly a limited edition collectible as it showcases the realm of comic books and the Marvel universe which turned eighty years old this year as well as leveraging on the series of blockbuster movies depicting the sagas of these super-heroes,” he said. “We grew up enthralled by the adventures of these superheroes and became acquainted by their characters and personas. Therefore, we are very ecstatic to rejoice each of these characteristics in this limited stamp series, commemorated within the stamp frame.”
