It's been almost ten years since the end of Warren Ellis and Stuart Immonen's cult favorite Marvel comic book Nextwave: Agents of H.A.T.E. and some fans think it's due for a return - as a LEGO set.

A Nextwave fan and LEGO builder who goes by BrokenDroid has crafted a LEGO model of Nextwave's Shockwave Rider with accompanying characters, submitting it to LEGO Ideas, a forum where fan builds can become official LEGO sets.

"I have done my best to recreate the Shockwave Rider in Lego brick form with the hope of bringing the Nextwave team to a new generation," BrokenDroid's post explains. "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."

LEGO has a Marvel license, and produces numerous Marvel Superhero based sets every year. If the Nextwave Shockwave Rider set gets 10,000 likes on LEGO Ideas, the toy company may consider producing it as an official set. So far, the Shockwave Rider has 36 supporters.
