Make Mine Marvel!

Make Mine Marvel!

Hello there from the Bullpen Bulletin!

I guess the excitement of ordering the Pos Malaysia – Marvel – The Walt Disney Company “Marvel 80 Years” is all time high this morning. There has been a relentless request for information and checks on Pos Malaysia’s eziemall. This is probably the easiest way to buy the issue as it can be pre-ordered online and no queues! It takes a bit of patience to wait for the items to arrive but hey, all good things need time to prepare!

Which other countries issued Marvel stamps this year? That would be United Kingdom via Royal Mail on 14 March 2019. The trick in buying UK stamps is to wait for the bundle offer or sales, which is going on now! https://shop.royalmail.com/special-stamp-issues/marvel

With the continued drop on the Pound (GBP) and the discount, it is really a better offer than buying on the release date.

Hmmmm, maybe Royal Mail will see a spike in their sale of leftover stocks of Marvel after you read this!

There are plenty of decorative stamps from dubious nations on Marvel. I usually skip these. They are more cinderella than anything else. No worthy!

Another worthy issue is from United States back in 2007 on superheroes.

Right, so for the die hard fans! Whatever it takes!

Keep a look out for more tie-in news in the future!

Meanwhile for foreign readers, the item is only available for local orders. If you would like to order via myfdc, just drop a note at: sky52200myfdc@gmail.com

Come to Kota Samarahan for an A to Z in Amphibian Philately and a Guinness World Record in the Making

Come to Kota Samarahan for an A to Z in Amphibian Philately and a Guinness World Record in the Making

Amphibians, Biodiversity, Campus, DeTAR, Exhibits, Free Entry and Guinness World Records: That sums it up for what will be an exciting evening in Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS) on 04 October 2017.

04 October 2017 is the World Animal Day. In conjunction with this day, the Institute of Biodiversity and Environmental Conservation (IBEC), UNIMAS, is organising the Sarawak Biodiversity Evening of events for public awareness in the fields of environment, ecotourism, nature conservation and biodiversity studies. The evening will showcase exhibitions, workshops, rapid talks, food trucks and philately!

The event will run from 2:00 pm to 8:30 pm at the Delima Hall, DeTar Putra Building, UNIMAS. It is open to all and entrance is free. Registration for workshops starts at 01:30 pm.

The philatelic highlight will be an attempt to be included in the Guinness World Records as the largest collection of amphibian stamps! Here is the extract: “Under the auspices of Guinness World Records, the organising committee has registered for an official exhibition of the world’s largest collection of stamps on the theme of amphibians (official entry 161123094024tlco).

The exhibition will show nearly 1,500 stamps of frogs, toads, salamanders, newts and caecilians, issued by scores of countries around the world, as well as postal stationery and other philatelic materials.” Keen to witness history in the making? Why not drop by for over 450 frames of amphibian postage stamps and postal stationery (including aerogrammes, first day covers, booklets, maximum cards, pictorial cancellations, essays, proofs, unissued items, etc)!
