E.T. fuckin’ terrifies me. It always has. I’m glad to know that I’m not alone in this, because apparently Rob at Topless Robot feels the same way. It all started when I was in my first year of kindergarten and my teacher decided it would be a great idea to show a bunch of 4 and 5 year-olds this goddamn horrific movie. I still have no idea what happens in that film other than that E.T. is a fuckin’ creeper and wanted to phone home.
So, apparently, The National Entertainment Collectibles Association, Inc. (NECA) has decided that, for the 30th anniversary of E.T., they will be producing a bunch of shit for it. Figures, plushies, toys, the works. What the fuck. Way to pass along the terror to future generations… I don’t understand why this thing is so popular! Didn’t it just have an anniversary not long ago? Gah.
