To celebrate 40 years of one of the most iconic aliens in cinema history, The Noble Collection is collaborating with NBCUniversal for an extraordinary E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial 40th-Anniversary Collection.
The lineup features a total of 11 items inspired by the gentle extraterrestrial, including three plush toys, four charms, and two bookmarks. One of the plush E.T. collectibles includes an interactive sensor that activates a warm orange glow. Another collectible plush features the costume ensemble from the “E.T. phone home” scene in the film, including the dress, hat, and blonde wig. There will also be a Toyllectible Treasure diorama that recreates the movie’s iconic flying bicycle scene.
“With a wide range of high-quality products, fans and collectors of all ages have the opportunity to celebrate the milestone anniversary,” says Julian Montoya, senior vice President of The Noble Collection. “The product range is carefully crafted with our signature Noble Collection craftsmanship and celebrates E.T. and signature scenes that have touched the hearts and sparked the imaginations of so many over the last four decades!”
The highlight of the collection is the Special Edition E.T. BendyFig. The figure comes with a round, black stand for display and E.T.’s flower pot accessory. It also features bendable arms and his iconic glowing fingertip, ready to heal any nasty papercut.
The BendyFig will be available this month, with the rest of the collection arriving this fall. The items will be available to preorder from The Noble Collection’s website.
E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial was directed by Steven Spielberg and originally released by Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment on June 10, 1982
