Who says stamps are not wonderful anymore? Pos Malaysia Berhad (Pos Malaysia) has teamed up with Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia to launch its first Marvel Super Hero stamp series.
The limited edition Marvel Super Hero stamp set pays homage to the Marvel comics in conjunction with Marvel's 80th anniversary this year. It contains 10 stamps with the most popular Marvel heroes such as Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Spider-Man and Doctor Strange, Black Widow and Black Panther as well as the baddies Loki and Thanos.
The complete Marvel Super Hero folder set consists of two perforated stamp sheets, one unperforated stamp, two souvenir sheets, two postcards and a folder. The price for the complete set is RM120 each.
In contrast to the usual special issue of stamps, this collection, which is a series by Setem Ku, is only available in a complete folder set. It is not 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-ordering at all 13 General Post Offices across the country or through the online store at www.eziemall.com.
In a press release, Pos Malaysia Group CEO Syed Md. Najib Syed Md. Noor hopes that the introduction of such stamps will attract the younger generation to collect stamps and increase interest in stamp collecting.
"This stamp collection is undoubtedly a limited edition collector's item, as it depicts the realm of comics and the Marvel Universe, which turned 80 this year, and is based on the series of blockbuster films that epitomize these superheroes." he said. "We grew up thrilled with the adventures of these superheroes and got to know their characters and personalities. For this reason, we are very pleased about each of these features in this limited stamp series, which is immortalized in the stamp. "
