Good & Evil did not disappoint and will leave you on the edge of your seat for years to come. Available at finer skateboard shops Nov. 24th.

Top secret Toy Machine AM is none other then Matt Bennett!!! Matt B. hails from Corona, California. Big welcome to the team!

Billy Marks killed it at Active’s annual Bling fest best trick contest. Coming directly off the premiere night.....on Saturday, Billy Marks whooped ass and beat everyone in the best trick contest. He won a crap load of cash, a guitar and amp to go with his new tires and rims!! Nice prizes, he's all hooked up now, spinners...what!

Billy on the rampage also recently won the Sun Diego Sports Arena double set replica best trick contest to the tune of $4,000. On fire!

After Josh Harmony’s amazing part in Good & Evil, Ed Templeton and the team decided to turn him pro. Josh Harmony is now pro!! Look for his new pro model in stores this holiday.

If you’re living in London, you’re gonna be pshyched! Josh Harmony, Austin Stephens and JLay will be visting the UK for the Cross Fire Christmas Skate Jam on December 11th.

Good & Evil USA premieres.

This is a wrap up from all the US shops that held premieres over the weekend and all the critics agree...

Howie from Satallite 13 in Cinncinati - "the new tm. video soooooooo hot right now!!!!!!!!"

Rob from Plus Skateboarding in Detroit - "We had over 200 kids at
the movie theater down the street from the shop. Kids
were getting hyped! I'd say Good and Evil matches Welcome to Hell.
Everybody has great parts, and good music. Those
backside Barley grinds have to be called Bennett
grinds! That shit is unbelievable! Artsy, but not too artsy. Fucking RAW, but fun. The
cartoon is rad! You had some high standards to live
up to and I think you did."
