Buzz Lightyear “Go Beyond” Forever postage stamps were announced by the U.S. Postal Service on June 9th, 2022. At that time, there was no date revealed for the stamp release and ceremony. We are now just a few days away from it, with an August 3rd, 2022 release and a ceremony at the El Capitan in Hollywood. I pre-ordered stamps and first day covers last week from USPS. Read the original press release below!
WASHINGTON — Far from the confines of Andy’s room, a sneak peek of new Forever stamps from the U.S. Postal Service was revealed at the red-carpet premiere of Disney and Pixar’s “Lightyear,” the new movie featuring Buzz Lightyear.
“Go Beyond” is a pane of 20 stamps arranged in four horizontal rows of five stamps featuring the image of Buzz Lightyear, a Space Ranger marooned on a planet 4.2 million light-years from Earth.
Greg Breeding was the art director using illustrations from Pixar Animation Studios.
Additional details about the “Go Beyond” commemorative stamp collection, including the release date, will be announced later this year.
