  • Prestige shells may need some trimming near the start/select area inside shell.
  • Shell can still be used for regular GBAs without IPS screens. Just purchase regular sized screen and be aware of having to position/secure the original screen down centered in view due to the opening being larger than normal.
  • Clear variants will be more frosted than crystal clear. We have Crystal Clear shells available here.
  • Created by RetroSix.


  • Heavy use on Pearl (Painted) shells may cause discoloration/deterioration over time. 
  • To clean the Pearl shells use a clean white microfiber cloth and  solvent of your choice. When using a colored microfiber cloth, the solvent can  dissolve the dye and stain your shell.

Very Nice

I got the Mint shell, it looks very clean and feels high quality!

Luke Penner
Perfect Christmas Present

I bought a used Game Boy Advance for my 6 year old son from a pawn shop for Christmas. It was in really rough shape with a lot of scratches on the shell and on the lens that covers the screen and also the battery cover was broken (had to be taped on) I ordered an IPS screen mod kit and also the new shell and all the buttons. I followed the simple instructions in the YouTube video for the installation and it works and looks fantastic! My boy was extatic when he opened his refurbished Game Boy Advance complete with carrying case from Amazon and Super Mario World! Thank you Hand Held Legend! You genuinely live up to your name!

Good quality but unwanted (unspecified) branding

It's good for a sprayed shell, but it has RetroSix branding on the front of the shell. You don't see it in the promotional pictures, but it's there.
