It was an ordinary time in life of M.C. Langer. You know, evil robo-planters, big prop guns, vibrobots with machine guns and stuff. But one day, the Publicity Dean of a Colombian university (and friend of mine) entrusted me a bizarre task: to make a fire hydrant (a tender cheesy one), who is the pet of the Cuerpo Oficial de Bomberos de Bogotá (Firefighters Brigade of Bogotá). And its name is "Cobbito".
- Wait a moment - I said - it has any weapon, missiles or "Rescue Heroes" stuff?
- It's a children's pet - the Dean reply - the idea is to make a cute hydrant using recycled things. For the kids. They love these things.
- Mmmmm... Why don't make another pet, a "G.I.JOE style" firefighter with a water blaster and a mega-axe? It would be more lovable for the kids and...
- JUST DO THE FREAKIN' HYDRANT!!
This is Cobbito:http://www.bomberosbogota.gov.co/content/view/695/207/
(The horror!... THE HORROOOOORRR!!)
Well, I did it. And for being my first fire hydrant, it's not too bad!!
(Wait for the high quality final pictures. My camera was damaged, and I had to use again my mom's old camera.)
