    Game Boy Shell

    Seth Leingang
    Great condition and color!

    I nought the clear teal version and it looks outstanding! No blemishes, marks, or stray bits. Snaps together great and fits perfect!

    Love them!!

    Always a good fit and feel!

    Very Good Shell Replacement

    I bought this in order to give an old game boy a coworker gave me a make over with a new shell and an IPS display. Was easy to trim for the new screen. I wish it was more of an atomic purple like the gameboy color... but it will do.

    One note to other people doing a screen swap... you will need to cut the plastic piece where the contrast wheel is. I didnt even think of that while putting it together and had to take it apart to cut it off.

    Very good shell! Dont hesitate to buy!

    High Quality

    I understand the Nintendo logo can’t be printed for legal reasons, and that’s how you know this company has integrity by doing things by the book. The quality and color selection more than make up for it! I recommend Retro Modding to all my friends and family that ask me where I got the parts for gameboys I repair and put together.
