These IPS ready Game Boy Advance shells by Retrosix have ultra transparent color style and smooth texture. The fit, feel and tolerance on the RetroSix ABS shell is better than the original. The plastic is much stronger and free of any defects like those you get on injection-molded shells.


  • Crystal clear transparency.
  • IPS ready for GBA IPS LCD backlight mods.
  • Entirely backwards compatible - Normal sized LCD fits as well as AA batteries.
  • Includes battery cover.
  • Extra wide window for IPS GBA Glass and Tempered Glass Lens.


  • 1x GBA Prestige Shell
  • 1x Battery Cover
  • 1x Set of screws and LED cover
  • 1x Replacement back sticker



  • We recommend only pairing these shells with RetroSix button sets. Triggers from any other company may have fitment issues with shell.
  • Shell can still be used for regular GBAs without IPS screens. Just purchase regular sized screen lens and be aware of having to position/secure the original screen down centered in view due to the opening being larger than normal.
  • Not recommended/compatible with Laminated LCD kits.
  • There is no logo on these shells.
  • Created by RetroSix.

Almost perfect

The shell looks and feels great in the hands. Other replacement shells I have bought elsewhere feel slippery, but this shell feels smooth yet easy to handle. My Gameboy was previously modded for a backlit screen and I was thinking of doing the battery mod, so this shell already having those changes in place was perfect. The one thing that was not clear to me was that the ready for battery mod part of the listing only meant there was no notch in the battery compartment, and I found out afterwards that the battery cover was not ready for the mod. I had to buy the battery mod compatible cover separately and pay shipping again after realizing my mistake. Otherwise this shell is great, better than others I have used for similar or slightly lower prices on amazon.

absolutely amazing clear shell

I love shells that allow you to see the motherboard and internals of handheld systems, so this shell really stuck out to me being fully see through, and boy does it live up to that name!

Beautiful case, absolute nightmare to install

the case is lovely and looks amazing but my God was it a task putting it together. trying to get the screws to actually **** into the damn thing on reassembly was an absolute mammoth task, I had to actually grip the GBA in one hand against my thigh and use all my strength just to get the screws past the initial few turns and actually in place (which eas very stressful as i was worried the entire time that the motherboard was going to snap/crack or the screen get damaged from the sheer pressure i had to put into it). notice on the left where the screen is misaligned slightly and you can see the side light? well i've got 0% change of ever fixing it, because there is no way in **** those screws will ever be coming out, and if they do i very much doubt they would go back in peacefully.

Thanks for your feedback! With aftermarket products, these are issues that can occur with the shells. The shells screw posts are not pre-threaded because if you need to open the console back up after closing, the more you do so, the more likely it is for the posts to be stripped of the threads or break. However, this creates resistance when putting the screws in the posts or removing them.

You should be able to open up the console at least this one time to make the adjustments on the LCD alignment. The screws would go in easier since you have now created the threads for them in the posts.

When you receive a backlight/LCD kit, you should perform a dry run before installing to assure that nothing has been damaged in transit.

All ribbon cables should have no bends or creases in them. If you are unsure how to perform a dry run, please contact our support team and we will be happy to help. Backlight kits that have been installed are not eligible for replacement or return. If a backlight/LCD is returned and shows any signs of having been installed, it will not be eligible for a refund.
