Palisades Toys is readying its release of the first series of INVADER ZIM action figures to quickly follow the release of the TV series on DVD in August. The cult hit, created by Jhonen Vasquez (JOHNNY THE HOMICIDAL MANIAC), was cancelled by Nickelodeon after only 26 episodes. The first series of action figures, each of which has a MSRP of $14.99, includes Invader Zim; GIR, his robot helper; The Almighty Tallest Purple, the leader of the Irken invaders; Ms. Bitters, the aptly-named classroom tyrant; and Dib, the only kid who realizes that Zim is an alien bent on conquering the world. Each figure features a detailed base modeled after the show as well as multiple character appropriate accessories.
