On this, the first anniversary of the news organization that has become so near and dear to your hearts, EB News is pleased to present a very special feature that we've only added recently: The EB News Review! This is really our third such extravaganza, but the first one to actually be done right, so it's my great honour to welcome all of you to this event. I'm your hostess with the mostest, er, host, ImperialShadows, getting in the way and generally causing mayhem will be Staudie, of course, and actually presenting the review will be cub reporter and senior reviewer, WhiteFang! Yes, the ever popular WhiteFang of the Reviewer's Academy. You know him, you love him, let's hear some applause!

*audience cheers wildly*

Oh, that's too kind, now how about some for WhiteFang? :tongue:


Name: Airplane Mechanic

Aren't our pose look so cool?
Staudie, your clothes are still white.
Let's just all try to smile until this picture is done.
Look at our special guest. He can still smile in that weird position of his.
Quiet you! :hmpf_bad:

I am the airplane mechanic, holding a grade 2 license. My specialisation is to maintain and repair jet turbines of 7893 and 7894 Passenger Planes. We have many mechanics, 24/7, across international airports, making sure that the planes are in safe condition. We are able to maintain from Rolls Royce, Pratt & Whitney and General Electric engines as well.

This is the trolley to push the turbine engine around. This model is used for Passenger Planes 7893 and 7894 series. Look at the size of the turbine. It required actually 4 engine turbines like this, to power a 7893 Passenger Plane aircraft.

I have all these nice essential tools, to work on that engine behind me. There is a wrench, hammer, oilcan, open end wrench, power drill and screwdriver.
*Whistles Innocently*
Geez, he thought no one would notice him pushing the engine away?


*Testing process*

As you can see, the crane is firm and sturdy. It is able to lift the engine at a certain height. Hey get off there! For goodness sake, this is not a rodeo.
Yee-Ha!
WhiteFang must fixed his loose wires.
I knew we shouldn't let him read those Superman comics on break. Give a man a cape, and he thinks he can fly. :hmpf:

*the audience laughs*
What's so funny?
It's dangerous to stand at that position.
Staudie, are you done with your measuring yet?
Almost there.


*Clang Bang Clank*

Posted Image

Oof! Get this thing off me!
I'll push, you pull!
Let's get moving!



*CLANG*

I think I sprained my pride. No, wait, it's my back. I gave up my pride when I took over this news organization.
*Shadows flips the engine, crushing WhiteFang*
Get that hook off my head...
Guess, we are heading for a commerical break at the moment. Wait up, let me pull the white curtain.

That's all, everyone. With me, Staudie bringing the end of the show. ImperialShadows and WhiteFang are currently in the LEGOLAND Hospital where WhiteFang is getting patched up and Shadows is flirting with the nurses, mostly.  I really hope you loved this interactive review brought to you by EB News Reviews. Overall, we felt that this was a very good impulse set with a wide range of mechanical tools and an extra turbine to play with. Therefore, we recommend you to get it since it's very affordable. Anyway, every airport need mechanics/engineers to maintain the aircrafts to make sure it's certified to fly.

This is too formal. I hate reading it from WhiteFang's script. It's best to do it in Staudie's style. :devil:

Yo yo yo, whazzup? Er. No, that isn't it either. Um... Thanks for viewing! I hope to bring you another exciting and information review soon, here on EB News Reviews!

It's amazing! It's stupendous! It's almost like WhiteFang is a reviewer with previous experience! It's almost like I wrote all of Shadow's lines! It's almost like Staudie is being as annoying as ever. Oh wait, that's all true! :grin:

Great review of a neat little set. I used mine as the air conditioning unit on the roof of my Chinese restaurant. Then some dork told me it didn't look believable or something. :sceptic: I liked it. :cry_sad:

Um... so. Great review! Thanks for presenting it! I give you a :thumbup:  :laugh:

And, let's just take a moment to get sentimental. A year ago, today, Staudie had a lame idea: Interview the members of EB. He flailed around with it for a few interviews, including the infamous one where Hinck attention whored Sinner into a corner and Sinner were featured, reprising their roles from the Whacker and the Walrus. It was quite memorable, but then, a short time later, someone new joined the team, bringing it to a new level of polish and bad jokes. Still, this tribute isn't dedicated to that genius of the written word, nay, it's dedicated to the whole staff, including the new guy who is still a secret so don't bother asking, I'm not telling! Ha! :devil:

I salute you, EB News, it's been a damn fine year! :thumbup:

I hope I can survive another. :sceptic:

Shadows is looking for stalkers. Yep, you heard me right. CLICKY!

That amazing x factor is supposed to be the magical touch of EB News Team! Glad to see it falling in place!  :thumbup:

Oh, I want to take a look on how you have make use of a jet turbine engine turning it into an air conditioner unit.

That is some fine history from the EB News. I wonder how Staudie can keep up with his sanity, asking questions around. I am so happy to be part of the team. Happy EB News 1 year Anniversary!  :wub:

Minus away the earlier mishaps, I am sure you are able to survive another year.  :tongue:

Give Staudie a break!  :tongue:

He deserved to have some good treatment at times! You had spelt Staudie's name wrongly. Geez, I am sure he will be driving the quad bike ramming towards you.  :laugh:
