Proposed Nextwave LEGO Set Turns Marvel Misfits Into Minifigs

Are you a fan of Marvel Comics' "Nextwave: Agents Of H.A.T.E.?" Do you love LEGOS? If so, you might consider Nextwave: Agents of L.E.G.O. a match made in heaven.

The concept is simple: LEGO Ideas allows fans to submit proposals for new LEGO sets, then other interested fans can show support for these projects. Each idea has 60 days to reach 100 supporters. Once creators meet that goal, they receive an additional 365 days to gain more followers. Once they reach the magic number of 10,000 patrons, the LEGO review board takes a look at the idea, evaluating if it could potentially become a new official LEGO set.

One creator, BrokenDroid, has pitched a concept for turning the members of Marvel's Nextwave team into LEGO characters, accompanied by their flagship vehicle the Shockwave Rider. The project description shows that they've done their homework and put plenty of thought on how to integrate Nextwave into the LEGO universe:

"This model brick set would be geared as a rebranding taking place after the events of the initial series of comics. The Nextwave team is now trying to go legitimate as they fight alongside the likes of the Avengers and X-Men to save the world… of course, much like the Guardians of the Galaxy, they’ll do it in their own special way. Changing their name to 'Nextwave: Agents of L.E.G.O.,' an acronym standing for 'Legally Enforced Good Objectives,' the team is ready to face off against the Marvel Universe’s most notorious villains."

The Nextwave team, consisting of Elsa Bloodstone, The Captain, Monica Rambeau, Tabitha "Meltdown" Smith, and Aaron "Machine Man" Stack, first appeared in a humorous 12 issue run, written by Warren Ellis and illustrated by Stuart Immonen back in 2006.
