Attention “Invader Zim” fans and LEGO fans alike; this project needs your support to be made into an official LEGO set. All you have to do is click the blue support button on the right hand side to vote. It's free to vote and setup a LEGO ID.
If we achieve 10,000 supporters, LEGO Ideas will review the project to see if they would like to make it into an official set.

This set could potentially include the following minifigures or more:
1 Zim minifigure with 2 heads (alien form head and human disguise head) and backpack (life support unit?). The legs that will be used are the mini legs, not the bendable hip joint ones since Zim is supposed to be the size of a child.
2 Gir micro minifigures (one in robot form and the other in dog disguise) and a big plate of waffles. “These ones got peanuts and soap in em!” – Accessory is inspired from the episode “Zim eats waffles”. Using micro minifigures for Gir will make him the perfect size compared to Zim.
1 Dib minifigure with binoculars and notepad. “"Time for some serious notes!" – Accessories inspired from the episode “Dib’s wonderful life of doom”. The legs that will be used are the mini legs, not the bendable hip joint ones since Dib is supposed to be the size of a child.
1 brick built flyin' pig! (BONUS accessory)
Here are some details of the House and Voot:
Voot Cruiser with enough space inside for Zim and Gir to stand. The engines are also rotatable and there is a printed Irken symbol on the back of the ship. The cockpit also has a computer console for manual control of the Voot.
Zim's house with opening roof to store Voot. The house also has opening sides for playability inside. I did a version with power absorbing pipes on the sides, but due to ease of playability with the opening sides, part count and aesthetics, I changed the design to include power absorbing pipe stickers (or printed pieces).
Voot roof storage compartment includes pipes, computer screens and a landing pad. There is also a clear docking station so the Voot appears to be floating and locks in place so you can play inside the house without it moving around.
Front lawn with 4 gnomes, an “I heart Earth!” sign and a fence.
Living room of the house features a couch with the green monkey picture above it, big screen TV with “The Scary Monkey Show” displayed as well as alien pipes and vents in the ceiling.
Kitchen includes opening refrigerator and oven, toilet w/ chain for flushing Zim to underground base. As well as an “I eat food!” picture above the toilet. There is also a table for Zim and Gir to eat the waffles.
*If this project passes the review phase, then LEGO master builders will design the final product.
We have been huge fans of the “Invader Zim” cartoon since it premiered in 2001. My username, buggyirk, is even inspired by the show. Nickelodeon only produced 1.5 seasons worth of episodes, but it continues to have a loyal fan base that is thirsty for more. Because of this, the show has been adapted into an ongoing comic book series.
We think this would make a great LEGO set not only because we would love an Invader Zim LEGO set ourselves, but also because the style and the color palette of the show/comic would make for a very unique LEGO set that is unlike anything currently available.
This LEGO Ideas project is a collaboration between my wife and I. Her username is jiminyc. She designed the minifigures. She also drew the characters, accessories, printed pieces and stickers. I designed the Voot cruiser and built it with real pieces to test the sturdiness and playability, but I had to design the house in LEGO Digital Designer due to the lack of pieces in my collection.
