Editorial Reviews

The Irken armada is poised to conquer the universe, but it would be a lot easier without Invader Zim! Thickheaded, brash, and overzealous, Zim has been banished into food service for wrecking the Irken home planet. He begs the almighty tallest for a second chance to reclaim his lost honor. Seeing the opportunity to rid themselves of this nuisance forever, they send Zim on a "secret" mission to a planet far away on the edge of the universe-Earth. Now Earth's only hope rests with a young UFO-hunting paranormal enthusiast named Dib. Seeing through Zim's human disguise, Dib makes it his sole mission to defend out planet from this fiendish alien menace.

Really, what am I supposed to say?

Now, opening from the top of the box, I'd imagine you'd find the "Gir figurine" that comes with this set.

This item is just the empty box from the boxed set, with an bonus DVD and a GIR figurine.

Wow. Invader Zim is awesome. I'd heard of it, vaguely, but only watched it when my Tivo happened to record an episode at random one day. I had it record a few more, then went and bought this "House Box Complete Set".

First off, Invader Zim is hilarious for all age ranges. The animation style and overt humor will surely appeal to the younger crowd but there's plenty of jabs that adults will laugh over. (As the hamster runs on a wheel in its cage, the teacher explains to the children that they should watch it to prepare themselves for their lives in our nightmarish corporate system, for example.)

The premise of the story is that Zim is an alien Invader, so incompetent (and so oblivious to this fact) that his leaders have packed him off to invade the most distant, uncharted planet they could find: Earth. Normally, Invaders are sent out with fearsome robot assistants but because they didn't like him, Zim's leaders gave him an "advanced" model, which was actually a defective unit that has a short attention span, acts crazy virtually all the time and can generally only attack people by annoying them -- Zim most of all. Between Zim's incompetence, his insane robot and his arch-nemesis, Dib, Zim's chances of actually conquering the earth are pretty much zero but there's also roughly zero chance that he'll ever notice this or get discouraged. Zim is nothing if not persistant.

The voice acting and writing for this show are both absolutely great. Zim in particular is fantastic. He's a complete megalomaniac, yells almost all the time, for no good reason and has the best maniacal laugh ever.

Anyway, if you're not familiar with the show, catch an episode or two on TV if you can, then come buy this.

Don't you hate it when you buy the DVDs for a series as they come out, only to see a box set - with a nifty box, bonus DVDs, and a figurine come out months later, forcing the true fan to choose between frugality and redundancy?

Well, fear not - that's not what's happened here.

This item is just the empty box from the boxed set, with an bonus DVD and a GIR figurine. If you already have purchased Invader Zim volumes 1-3 on DVD, this is for you.

If you haven't bought the episodes yet, look for boxed set with the episiodes included.

This DVD set met and exceeded my expectations. Every episode of Zim that you ever wanted to see is found here. Not to mention the figurine of Grrr and Zim's house that nicely compliment a coffee table or flat surface of choice. If you like Zim, you have to have this.

Dieses Produkt kann ich nur noch weiter empfehlen! Ist sehr witzig und hiermit kann man ziemlich gut die Langeweile vertreiben.

For all of you who don't know, this page is for the full box set. There is another page if you just want the box and bonus disk. This set will also come with an exclusive Gir action figure, which is really nice if you ask me. These figures come with both the full set and the single disk set. I ordered this a long time ago, and since these are limited editions, you should, too.

... you absolutely supercalifragilistically have to get this box!!! In fact, you get 2 boxes for the price of one. The actual house boxset is shipped within another Zim decorated box. It's a nice extra feature to have standing on your shelve next to the actual DVD boxset.

The house itself is gorgeously decorated with tough materials and an internal magnet that keeps the door shut. The roof folds open perfectly. Where origininally there used to be a unique G.I.R. toy is now nothing, and that's a big bummer for people who only now see the true beauty of the boxset. They do however mention perfectly that the G.I.R. toy is temporerally out of stock which keeps them within their right. Another Zim-related toy would have done the job too...

The extra DVD disc contains so many extras that you would never be able to get your hands on wether legal- or illegally. If only you wanted to discover what else goes on beneith that which is called Invader Zim, you would have to get this set.

Don't spoil your perfectly good money on the seperate DVD's if you could get ALL of them in the worlds most magnificent box at an even lower price then the others combined!!

BE A FAN, BUY THE SET!!!

This is AWESOME! It has all the episodes ever aired in the US, plus many in the second season that were never aired in the US, only abroad. The replica of Zim's house is cute, and the little GIR doll is even cuter. My only complaint is minor, and that is that the top of GIR's head keeps falling off (I guess that it's to make more room for cupcakes, tuna or a beehive). For those of you unfamiliar with the show, it's definitely NOT for youngsters, but perfect for teens, preteens, and yes, adults, too. There's more than enough bizarre off the wall humor here to keep even me in stitches, and I'm almost 42!

How do I know this is the right Box?
The 116 USD version contains 4 DVDs:
3 with ALL the episodes and 1 with several extras (the original "Horrible Holiday Cheer" Christmas episode, music tracks, interview with composer Kevin Manthei, unfinished episodes).

Plus, a cute Gir figurine *^__^*
