The 40th Anniversary “Ultimate Telepathic E.T.” figure from NECA sure looks cool, as most of their stuff does. (Check out their surprisingly underpriced ALF figure; it’s incredible.)
He doesn’t come with quite the same the glut of accessories as ALF, but what he has is pretty sweet.
But I noticed some letters on the Speak & Spell: XWVURFP.
My ROT-13 sense was tingling, so I popped it into CyberChef.
But I kept rotating the count around until I got to what would be considered “ROT-23″…
Unscramble the letters to get… SCROTUM?!
Surely, this is just a coincidence. There’s so few letters, and it’s such a simple cipher that it’s probably not on purpose. Maybe it shows up in the film, and they’re just going for authenticity.
But, you know, back in the day, on the playground, we joked that he was “E.T.: The Extra Testicle”.
I’m on the fence here, honestly.
