Red GBA SP shell replacement

This shell is great! Had to cut for IPS screen however this is easy to do and not an inconvenience! Great replacement!!

NOT the perfect replacement. (Cobalt)

This shell does not look or feel like the original Cobalt "Blue" shell.
The plastic feels cheep and flimsy and the paint looks glittery rather than metallic.
On the plus side it includes everything that you'd expect and it all fits perfectly with the original hardware.

If you're are looking for a pretty shell and you don't mind it feeling a bit flimsy, this shell is perfect for you.
If on the other hand you're looking for the perfect replacement shell for your original GBA SP Cobalt, then this is the wrong item to get.
I only give it 2 stars 'cause the description makes it seem like it's the latter, otherwise I would have given it 4.

I'm sorry to hear of the issue! Please message us at so we may get this resolved for you.

Perfect fit

Another HHL hit! Thanks for cranking out the hits.

This shell is cheap and the included screws are awful.

The plastic of this shell feels low quality and seems easy to damage. Two of the screws broke off in their post, and it was a headache to remove them. I won’t bother reaching out to HHL because each time I have, they haven’t been helpful. Switching to Retro Game Repair Shop after this.

Zelda shell is lit.

I grabbed 2 TLOZ themed shells and installed them on my IPS modified GBA SPs and it took the build to another level. I love how they looked and the feel of the plastic is good. Buttons all feel good. If you use the HISPEEDIO IPS screen, you will have to trim a bit of the shell still, but use a good pair of flush cutters and it's easy.
