We first saw Mezco Toyz’ Earthworm Jim last year’s SDCC, but now Mezco has released new information about their upcoming 6″ Earthworm collectible figure. Created by Doug TenNapel and designed by David Perry, Earthworm Jim was a video game developed by Shiny Entertainment and Playmates Interactive Entertainment in the ’90s.

From the release:
Evildoers beware as Mezco brings the intergalactic hero Earthworm Jim to life as an articulated figure! Jim comes complete with a game accurate plasma blaster as well as his famous ultra-high-tech-indestructible-super-space-cyber-suit. The 6inch scale Earthworm Jim features 8 points of articulation. He comes complete not only with his plasma blaster, but with an alternate “bendy” unsuited worm body as well.

Mezco’s Earthworm Jim is set for release in July of 2012.
