These custom, 3D printed inserts are designed for use in transparent Game Boy Advance SP shells. They're a great way to set your console apart and conceal the foam backing of the AGS-001 or 101 LCD. Add a vibrant flash of color to your SP or choose a monochromatic shade for a more modern look.

Features

  • Designed to fit perfectly in clear GBA SP shells
  • 3D printed with a textured finish
  • Friction fit, no glue installation
  • Conceals AGS LCD backing
  • Offers an excellent opportunity to customize your SP

Options

  • Currently available in fourteen colors, from vibrant hues to modern grays. Please not that not all colors pictured are available. 

Documentation

  • If you'd like to 3D print your own GBA SP shell insert in a color of your choosing, our STL file is open source and available on Thingiverse

Included

  • 1 x GBA SP shell insert in a color of your choosing

Notes

  • Intended for use in transparent GBA SP shells. This product will not be visible in opaque shells.
  • The foam backing on the AGS-001 LCD is soft enough that it does not need to be removed for the insert to fit in the shell. If using the insert with the AGS-101, you'll have to remove the top layer of black foam tape from the back of the AGS-101
  • The shell insert in White is laser cut PET
  • Console not included
  • Colors may vary from what you see on your display

Doesn’t fit the shell properly

The insert leaves a 1/8 inch gap on one side of the shell so some of the back of the screen can still be seen…… it’s ugly and light peeks out along the edge but not as ugly as seeing the back foam without an insert.

I’ve purchased 4 of them in different colors and they all have the same issue so it isn’t just a one time flaw with one particular insert.

Amazing

This has brought new life into my gameboy advance SP, the transparent shell with the new IPS screen = straight beauty. Been playing fire emblem again and having a blast, thanks RetroModding :)

Looks far better than the foam cushioning if you're replacing an oem shell with a clear one. $7 is a little steep for a couple grams of 3D printed plastic though.

Very good product

Good Enough

Overall I'm pretty pleased with the product. The insert fits nicely in both FUNNYPLAYING and Cloud Gaming screens (although, due to the nature of the CGS screens, one side will be raised.)

A warning, however, because the insert is not quite big enough to cover the entirety of the back of an IPS-compatible screen, so if you have foam back there or something it'll stick out the side slightly. Not a complete deal breaker, but might be if you care a lot about uniformity. Probably fits perfectly on a non-IPS shell.
