For an entire generation, this was our first memory of crying both sad and happy tears in a movie theater. Now, as a way of celebrating this legendary sci-fi film, Fisher-Price is releasing a brand new Little People Collector set. It features Elliott, his sister Gertie, and of course, E.T. himself.
