Box modeling is a technique used in Polygonal and Sub-D Modeling. No idea what Mr Box is?

More specifically, box modeling is where you start with a simple primitive (generally a cube, hence the name) and you massage it into a more complex form by slicing edges/faces, tweaking vertices, and extruding polygons.

I also do not know who Mr. Box is, but it sounds kinky.

Um, you don't have to go to garagegames to find such a model. I do that all the time, as I imagine a lot of people do when they just need a quickie placeholder.
