If you're a lover of both retro video games and postage stamps, then we have some good news for you. The UK's Royal Mail has just announced a new collection of stamps featuring various titles from the 80s and 90s developed right here in Blighty, and it's honestly pretty cool.
This special run of stamps includes games such as WipEout, Lemmings, Worms, Micro Machines, and more besides, and you can grab the whole collection together. Additionally, a smaller set devoted to the Tomb Raider series is also available.
The stamps can be pre-ordered now, and will officially launch on 21st January. There are various ways you can purchase these, depending on whether you plan to keep them or, you know, actually stick them on letters. Check out all the options on Royal Mail's website.

These are super cool. Love them.
They’re a lot more pleasing to the eye than the Queen’s head. End British rule, use Lemmings stamps instead 😉
That's a cool collection.
Belief it or not I actually have a stamp collection. My grandfather worked for the royal Mail all his life and now my uncle does so I get all these stamps free dating back decades, call it my retirement plan
All 8 games are mint, royal mint.
Probably pick these up look great
These are a slam dunk. Dizzy is finally getting the respect he deserves.
All we need now is a remaster of all the Dizzy games (except the rubbish ones) on PS4 with trophies.
Seeing that T-Rex in the Tomb Raider 1 pic is making me feel nostalgic.
This is the one and only time that I will collect stamps.
Edit* I've ordered the collection framed. Cheers, Push Square.
Sensible Soccer. On the Amiga. Still the best footy game of all time.
Lovely to see Dizzy and Micro Machines on there as well, they were awesome back in the day. And I remember playing Lemmings at school!
@ApostateMage stamps are a good investment mine last time I valued it was 8k
Being a guy that works for Royal Mail how come I'm learning this news on here?lol
Great stamps though,I'm not a collector but I will be getting these.
Well if they do some DQ, FF, RE or Zelda ones, I might actually become a stamp collector.
Thanks for bringing this to attention. Bought with my upcoming birthday money from my 96yr old grandma.. I always use her money to buy something to remember her by when shes dead. 👍
Cmon what about Miner Willy, the first gaming icon of UK gaming scene. Of course I'm a little biased.
They look fantastic the ones we are getting.
