I've always wanted to have an E.T. figure when I was a kid and I remember watching the film (on betamax) when I was about 5 or 6, I cried and cried when ET was about to die. I was only little and I couldn't understand the language on the film as I knew only two English words at that time, cat and dog. But since after watching the film, ET was and still is my favourite childhood film of all. I'm so happy I managed to get an original ET figure from the 1980s on ebay for £1.99. Now, I found a new friend.
