Loyal Pawndom at it's finest...

A series of emails from Chad VonTobel:
Hows it going?
I decided to take down all of my TM stuff i've collected over the last 11 years of skateboarding (im 25 now and started at 14) and dust it off and take some pictures.  There's also some pictures of my TM tattoos. They are both older and a little faded. I had a friend do the monster on my ankle about 7 years ago! And the sect is almost as old but from a shop. Ive ruined plenty of TM decks so this isn't everything ive had TM.
I live in Las Vegas NV and i've never seen a demo or got to meet Ed or any TM people (my own fault) but i love the graphics and Ed's art. I used to sit in high school and draw Sect,Turtle Boy and the Monster on everything. I spoke with a woman on an art website and she told me the price for one of Ed's original pieces is really expensive! I know its a stretch but all i really want is something Ed has originally drawn and maybe signed. I know most kids have to stand in line for like 9 hours so i understand if i cant get something. Even if its just a small scrap of paper it would be so cool. Id frame it and hang it in my house.  Ed's my hero. And i'm a loyal pawn for life.

(Those aforementioned tattoos)
I also made this group on  Please check it out!  I know myBerrics is really lame, but this group is the only thing TM on that website and it makes me feel like i can do my part to make Ed some more money so he can keep going to awesome places and keep posting beautiful photos of everything and making TM stuff. There are a lot of potential loyal pawns just sitting there online waiting for you snatch up and devour their tiny little souls. Ya know?
By the way I know the blue deck in the background isn't toy machine but it is a shoe rack I made from 2 decks and they are attatched to eachother.
Didn't mean to write you so many e-mails but this ones the last. I keep finding other TM stuff and thinking awww. I wish this was in the picture. Like the TM temporary tattoos! So cool.

This makes me look like an amateur, I have like 3 percent of what he has.

CHAD holding it down on The Berrics. I wish I was 11 and had Skinny Jeans so I could Troll and talk shit on that Berrics site. Sooo not steezy. Sooo gay.

Ok,I have a lot of the things he has. I have those Turtle Boy tech deck dudes. The Four in the first photo, I have that Turtle Boy Wallet, same color (get a lot of compliments especially when I pay for things at a Shop). I have the web belt too, I have like 20 tech decks, this guy has a ton and spanned more time. He has more Action figures, and those Bearings.

Ed,I'm sure this guy would love it if you were to doodle something on paper and mail it to him. 15 minutes of your time and a couple of pennies in stamps in exchange for a lifetime of Pawndom, Hook a Chad VonTobel up.

This makes me think,should I do this with my Toy shit?

so much respect for this man, Ed should give him a drawing or whatever, maybe one of his used socks, just give him something.
