Whether it is for the sake of nostalgia or if you are a fan of the 80s sci-fi flick, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, you will want to check the NECA’s E.T. 40th Anniversary 7” Scale Action Figures. There are five sets, each representing some of the most memorable scenes.
There is the iconic poster scene E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial 40th Anniversary 7” Scale Action Figure – Elliott & E.T. on Bicycle, Ultimate E.T. that lets you relive E.T.’s various earthly encounters, Ultimate Dress Up E.T. from the playtime scene with Elliot’s little sister, Ultimate Telepathic E.T. from the various home scenes, and finally, the Deluxe Ultimate E.T. with LED chest that you recreate the E.T. Phone Home scene with light-up LED chest, the homemade large communicator device, and more.
The Elliott & E.T. on Bicycle set comes with a freestanding movie backdrop that you recreate the famous flying scene which I thought is super cool. Do note that the E.T. is in 7-inch scale which means, the actual figure is around 4.5 inches tall because E.T. is a small alien lifeform.
With the exception of Elliott & E.T. on Bicycle, which is mostly for display, E.T.’s figure from the rest of the sets is posable and may include interchangeable necks, hands, and in the case of Ultimate Dress Up E.T., interchangeable heads (with or without wig).
Each NECA E.T. 40th Anniversary 7” Scale Action Figure comes in a display-friendly 40th-anniversary window box packaging with an opening front flap. Perfect for collectors who prefer not to remove the toy from the package.
The toys are expected to release sometime this fall. All five NECA E.T. 40th Anniversary 7” Scale Action Figures are available for pre-order from online retailers like Big Bad Toy Store and Entertainment Earth. Prices range from US$34.99 to US$46.99 each.
