Description

The holy grail of Game Boy DMG Shells. The Game Boy DMG Prestige IPS Ready Shell Kit is designed specifically for use with a usb-c rechargeable battery pack.

Note: A glass tempered screen can be purchased separately.  A screen is NOT included in this kit.

About
The fit, feel and tolerance on the RetroSix ABS shell is better than the original. The buttons are stronger with newer ABS and more accurate molds than the original, the buttons and triggers are ultra-responsive, the plastic is much stronger and free of any detects like those you get on injection-molded shells.

Our shells are drop-in IPS screens can simply drop in with no modification whatsoever! Simply place your IPS screen in central (use our IPS bracket for perfect alignment).

Additionally, the battery compartment allows for a drop-in fit of the CleanJuice DMG XL without any cutting required. If you plan to purchase a CleanJuice we recommend the USB-C milled battery version of this shell, so you have the hole in the battery cover, although it will still fit in this shell if you prefer not to have a hole.
Once you compare our shell with all the others on the market you will never look back!
History

Following on from our super successful GBA shell, we spent another 8 months developing the perfect GB shell. Spending over $10,000 on new molds even now we have the process more efficient since our GBA endeavor.

Cleaning

Pearl-series shells: We have tested multiple cleaning agents on the shells with success, and have heard that some individuals cleaning using a microfiber cloth along with a solvent may have the dye in the microfiber cloth come off on the shell. This has been observed only with solvents used with colored microfiber cloths.

Great shell for an IPS DMG mod

Purchase the clear blak (no text) version to fit a Funnyplaying retro pixel kit.

Pros:
The fit for the kit is great, nothing needs to be cut it is all perfectly precut so you can just drop it in. In the case of the clear blak the plastic is quite nice and it feels solid. The metal shielding at the back comes presintalled and with a plastic to prevent scratches.

Needed improvements:
The buttons are very bad, buttons are pressend by themselves sometimes. The START and SELECT buttons are the worse. They seem to be the prestige buttons but seems the original ones are better.
Be careful with the screws and do not overtighten or unscrew too much as the post may get bad with time. The color of the shell is not as clear as seen on the pictures it is actually darker and not that much see through as I expected based on a clear black shell I have for the GBC.

Overall recommend them if you find they are on sale and not regular price.

Game Boy pure white shell

The shell itself is very high quality and feels nice. However it's not perfect. In the shell i got there are 2 small black spots on the side. Not something very noticeable but still.. The rubber pads that came with it were way too soft to the point of being practicaly useless (in my opinion). And the screws that came with the kit were too wide and needed some forcing.. Overall none of these are big issues, and the shell is high quality and came fast. Would recommend.

Great Product!

Made installing the IPS screen a breeze since I didn't have to do any of the trimming and potentially mess the shell up. 100% recommend this for anyone installing an IPS screen in a DMG Gameboy.

Great Shell for the clean juice battery and IPS setup!

Really great product, I had to do a bit of trimming around the scroll wheel but thats because I misplaced the IPS rubber block. Overall great!
