Nickelodeon to launch Invader Zim exclusives at Forbidden Planet stores across the UK

Nickelodeon & Viacom Consumer Products has partnered with Forbidden Planet to launch an exclusive range of Invader Zim apparel, housewares and accessories to retailer across the UK.

The range features fan-favourite Zim and his faithful companion GIR to include t-shirts, mugs, coasters and travel pass holders with retail prices ranging from £2.99 to £17.99.

The full collection will be on sale at Forbidden Planet stores across major UK cities. Zim fans can also purchase the entire range online at forbiddenplanet.com along with previously available vinyl figurines and graphic novels.

The partnership between Nickelodeon & Viacom Consumer Products and Forbidden Planet follows the successful Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles exclusive range that launched at Forbidden Planet last year.

The retailer is set to unveil more Nickelodeon lines in 2017.

Marianne James, VP commercial partnerships, consumer products and experiences for Nickelodeon UK and Ireland, said: “From the success of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles range, we know that Forbidden Planet is a strong and passionate partner with a great eye for properties and products that will be coveted by fans.

"Invader Zim is a cult favourite and the striking design of the show works beautifully over the product range.”

Omar Khan, licensing and special projects manager, Forbidden Planet, added: "I’m hugely excited that Invader Zim will find a new home at Forbidden Planet later this year.

Our direct-to-retail line features exclusive clothing and everyday accessories for the hard-core Zim fan – from t-shirts to travel pass holders. Previously, we’ve had lots of interest with our ongoing line of retro Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles products, especially our Christmas jumper.

"Along with other fantastic Nickelodeon Retro properties, we can’t wait for Zim and friends to conquer our stores."
