E.T. immortalized in wax at Madame Tussauds

E.T. the extraterrestrial is making appearances around the world.

Madame Tussauds unveiled wax likenesses of the otherworldly star of Steven Spielberg’s 1982 film “E.T. — the Extra-Terrestrial” at six of its international locations Monday, The Associated Press reports.

The wax figures were crafted at Merlin Studios in London and will be on view at Madame Tussauds museums in Los Angeles, Sydney, Tokyo, London, Berlin and Amsterdam.

The exhibit features the iconic scene from the film where a blanket-wrapped E.T. rides in the makeshift basket of Elliot’s BMX bicycle.

“E.T. — the Extra-Terrestrial” recently marked its 30th anniversary.
