Robin Hood Pack
Home > 2010 Issue Summary > Robin Hood Pack

Celebrating the release of the new Robin Hood movie starring Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett, this pack features two sheetlets of 10 Russell Crowe stamps and 10 tabs. There is no Cate Blanchett stamp in the sheetlet as Australia Post advises the licensing agreement was not taken up by Cate Blanchett's screen management company.

Gummed Sheetlet Stamps
The sheetlet stamp is a very close match to the original issue 22 January 2009, but is new for two reasons:

  • the stamp has an attached tab
  • the stamp is printed by a new printer
The background is not white, rather light blue-grey as it was with the original stamp. A white background version of the Russell Crowe stamp does exist from the AFI Film Lovers Pack.
