Atomic Hotbox, Where have you gone?

I've been away from the site for a couple of months, though still buying the mag each month, but for the last two months, no Hotbox.

This was my favourite part of the magazine since I first picked it up about four years ago.

I hope that it will be making a return, as I still want to submit the case I'm working on. (It's still 6 months away though).

I don't want to give too much away, but I think you'll all be very surprised by my effort. All I will say is that the case in question, is made out of a full torso manequin! Use your imagination, try to guess what I've done. And don't think dirty!

I noticed the distinct lack of hot box ... did i miss something?



No, you've not missed anything, my man.

Over the last six months or so the atomic crew has noticed that there's been a bit of a plateau in the modding scene. It's not dead, by no means, but we had noticed that sourcing the cool cases was getting harder and harder; with so many great things we want to cover in the pages of the mag, the decision was made to change the way we approach Hot Box.

It's still formative at this stage, but we're aiming to make the Atomic Hot Box an annual event, quite possible timed to the next atomic LIVE day. This means we can widen the field a little, and really build the excitement factor.

And, hopefully, we can present some seriously kick-arse case-mods on the day - along with some appropriately kick-arse prizes.

I like the effort they've gone to do that, but it's kinda crap and has no functionality what so ever.

Yeah whats the point of the webcam, unless your standing up and the Leela is holding a nice 30" LCD it wouldnt make too much sense.

As reported a little while ago, we've decided to change the way we run Hotbox. As it was, we had a two page spread dedicated to it, and some months we were getting zero response, which kind of left us in the lurch; there just doesn't seem to be a lot of serious modding going on in the community at the moment.

But Hotbox is not dead.

What I'd like to do is run a series of Hotbox comps outside of the magazine, that ultimately lead up to the next Atomic LIVE event. Imagine, the very best case mods and builds the country has to offer, under one roof, with the one that earns the most crowd accolades winning on the day...

But Hotbox indicated NZ entries too, is that a hoax then?

beatshoes is disqualified from entering, on the grounds that his case would automatically win, hence making it unfair on the other people. Those with a windowed case with LED fans in them. :D

I, for one got sick of seeing cases plastered with stickers being classed as hotboxes.
It'd be way better to see what you're suggesting David :3
