These custom, 3D printed inserts are designed for use in transparent SP shells for Game Boy Advance. 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
  • Not compatible with Funny Playing Mirror Shells
  • The shell insert in White is laser cut PET
  • Console not included
  • Colors may vary from what you see on your display

Shell Insert for Game Boy Advance SP

Exactly what they say they are

Fits in a standard shell and are clearly 3D printed. They flex a little, but are mostly stiff. You may need to sand a bit of the edges to get a smooth finish on it

Nice Option

I thought this was a nice alternative to looking at foam backing on the screen. I ordered the pink insert and it was opaque enough to conceal the innards. Fit perfectly into the translucent IPS shell I used for the project. I'm a fan of this little thing.

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 :)
