Steven Spielberg’s E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial is one of the all-time classic movies across all genres. It melded science fiction, adventure, humor, and warmth, and tugged at many a heartstring. Of course, a big part of what made the movie work was just how endearing and expressive its title character was.
Now, you can own your own E.T. – or at least his adorable alien face to display in your own home.
This perfect replica of E.T.’s face comes from Czech artist Stanislav Dykast, which is an awesome name for a prop maker. It’s a 1:1 scale resin casting based on the original sculpt done by the late, great artist Carlo Rambaldi for the movie. Dykast did an amazing job painting in all of the details, and E.T. really looks like he could jump out of that bicycle basket and start stealing all your Reese’s Pieces any minute now.
Keep in mind that what you can actually buy on his Etsy shop is just the unpainted mask, and you’ll have to paint and complete E.T. yourself if you want it to look as good as what Dykast is showing off in his pictures.
