I don't have much idea expect that maybe it should use same colours and some orange and red, but in some topic DSL mentioned he's working on a logo, so let's see how it'll turn out.

OMG, coolnesss!!

Although I might change the border, not the letters, to be purple, to avoid monothony.

Not such a bad idea ;)
Though a more pinkish tone (Billy's shirt) was better than purple.

I have the logo in twice the size if needed, also the 3d-objects can be removed if the textblock works better on it's own...

Awesome DSL.

But really green and pink together looks awfull. I also think the diamond shouldn't look to static.

Awesome looking logo! Agree with Djaser that the first version of it, without pink, looks better. Very nice. Nice ico as well.

To save vertical space, I'd lay the pogo stick on its side, letting it instead fill up space to the right over the top of the logo. The white around the keygem looks a bit out of place--but really, awesome work!

I like the favicon, but I think the logo is too tall. It still looks pretty cool, though.

that is a really cool logo; i agree with Xsky that it's more aesthetic to place the pogo on its side; and imo, the ComputerWrist and Keen's red book would go good in there, 2, since they r very Keen items.

The lenght doesn't bother me so much, the pogo on it's side won't make it look better.
It might be a good idea to add blast spots on the helmet.

I pretty much follow along here with the general consensus here--really nice favicon, I would be happy if we used that as-is. And I like the first banner better--but I'm not so happy with the pogo stick, helmet, etc. I'm not sure what we should do with them--they're not bad per se (in fact, they look pretty Keen)--it's just that they don't seem to work in the overall composition.
