Hello ladies and gentlemen, it is me again, the ever-ready alert EB News Reporter, Staudddieeeee.....
*large hook comes on/stage and pulls him off*
He doesn't have to promote himself at our opening introduction. Although we have not been very active recently, but here we are, ready to deliver another exclusive EB News Review. Next to me is our star EB News Reviewer, WhiteFang . Who am I? Don't be silly, I'm the ever handsome and charming host of this fine program, Shadows. Have we forgotten someone?
*Ahem*
Ah yes, our special guest, CopMike, Eurobricks LEGO Ambassador and all around great guy!

Today we will be reviewing a small Fabuland set, 3789 Constable Clarke. You may notice that he bears a stunning resemblance to CopMike, who will actually be portraying him in this presentation.


Name: Constable Clarke
Theme: LEGO / Fabuland
Year: 1984
Pieces: 5
Minifigs: 1
Price: N.A
Resources: Brickset, Peeron

Allow me to formally introduce myself, I am CopMike, but today I am Constable Clarke, an alias I use in Fabuland. As a Police Officer, it's my duty to serve and protect the safety of our civilians and of course doing my duty as a LEGO Ambassador for Eurobricks!
For a Fabuland minifigure like yourself, this motorcycle is rather tall but I am surprised that minifigs like myself are able to ride this vintage model.
You are right on this aspect. My trusty Fabuland motorcycle is still in great working condition despite being 25 years old.

*Turns to WhiteFang*
Next time, please don't let Shadows find that large hook anymore. I have been practicing my script all day long
*PSST*
You are "LIVE".
Opps! I should probably continue with the interview. Didn't expect that you'd have such a large rear ...
WHAT? :angry:
... compartment to keep your gear in place.
Oh, right. Well, there isn't much gear back there except for a radio antenna for me to maintain communication and signal holder. The sidebags are meant for snacks, and that's a warning for you... HANDS OFF!
*Slowly retreats*


Posted Image
Hmmm... I wonder what kinds of snacks he has in there ...
I don't think that's a good idea!
*Vrooom Vroooom*
*Gulps* Right!


Posted Image
CopMike, want to go for a race? My bicycle can beat you anytime.
Don't start bragging. How can you ever beat me? Look at my rear thrusters. You are going to be toasted if you are in a race with me.


Posted Image
Why don't we have the race right now?
Good idea! Time for us to hit the dirt.
Loser will have to polish my bike and I have the right candidate in mind.   :devil:


Posted Image
If you shoot at us, that blaster won't be the only thing fired by the end of this race!
Drats.
It's clear enough that we are going to have the winners' list soon and he is going to go for a career in polishing bikes!


Shadow's Opinion: What can you say, it's a great chance to pick up a top notch Fabuland figure and a cool bike with those incredible saddlebags. What's not to love?

Stauder's Opinion: I lyke toast. Oh, and this bike. I'm going to have to polish it for the rest of my life if CopMike finds out I scratched it with my helmet when he ran me over. :blush:

WhiteFang's Opinion: Excellent piece of Vintage Fabuland set. This is a good chance for me to acquire this Fabuland set at a low cost, despite of its used condition. I believed this set is extremely affordable back then, and to be able to own this set sure adds some colors to my limited Fabuland collection.

CopMike's Opinion: !!! STAUDERDOODLE!

Not sure if i'm suppose to respond or not, but I enjoyed it, very fun.

It's nice to just see fun instead of a set being reviewed.  Very entertaining :thumbup:

Of course, you can comment and provide your feedback. EB News Review is always revolving, and seek to improve by provide some fun. The last portion of this coverage, wasn't really complete as I was following the previous format over here.

I am actually waiting for some updates/editing from "someone".  :blush:

Do get some Fabuland minifigs one way or another. They are real great figures.  :thumbup:

Apparently, no fellows on bricklink willing to sell one  :sceptic:. How much would one of these go for, assuming I had the money? Great review as always

Interesting review! I don't own any Fabuland... thankfully. This line disturbs me. It ain't natural. Especially those dead eyes. I think he sees with his brain....

He is right. Get it separately. It's much affordable this way, otherwise try and search this on eBay. I got mine in eBay at a very reasonable price.

Err... I thought Fabuland minifigs are very cute. I don't see any problems with their eyes though.
