6th Logo (March 31, 2000)

Then he leaves, but the symbol breaks off and rolls. The punk returns anxious, grabs the symbol and blasts it full force into the logo. He departs again, but before vanishing, takes a look behind to check the symbol, and makes a satisfied grunt.

Technique: The character walking around and (R) sign rolling down.

7th Logo (April 17, 2006-)

Technique: The circle collects and zooms out.

Music/Sounds: Short humming turning into orchestral synth and the crystal sound on the shine.
