Sucking the Contest.

Ok, the Toy Machine team has gotten together and decided that they wanted to give away some of the new Sucking the Life videos, but how? And why would anyone want to win a lame Toy Machine video? So we decided to throw in a t-shirt to sweeten the deal. Without further's the deal...Send us your drawings of the Toy Machine team riders. Just the head and shoulders. Not the shampoo, but the drawings of the teams head and shoulders. No dandruff please. The top 10 winners get a free "Sucking the Life" tour video, a shirt and a good chance that your drawing will be used in a future Toy Machine ad.

Contest rules?

Send in drawings of any Toy Machine rider.

Send us drawings of their face, like a drivers license picture, head and shoulders only.

No skating drawings copied from magazines!

Please include your Name, Address, and shirt size.

Please do not send poop! Yessica does not like it very much.

Sucking the Life video.

Toy Machine is working on a new video! That's right boys and girls a new Toy Machine video. This one is a tour video that highlights the 2002 summer 'Sucking the Life' tour. Lots of BB guns, water guns and firecrackers will separate the footy of Toy Machine's skateboarding onslaught. Plans are to release it in March, and so the editing ensues. Featuring Ed Templeton, Diego Bucchieri, Austin Stephens, Caswell Berry, Josh Harmony, Billy Marks and Nate Broussard, its going to be gay in a happy way, not a sexual one. Available in March, 2003 in skateshops only!
