Behold the holy grail of Game Boy DMG shells from our partner RetroSix.
The fit, feel, and tolerance of 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.
The battery compartment allows for a drop-in fit of the CleanJuice XL without any cutting required. If you plan to purchase a CleanJuice we recommend to purchase the USB-C battery cover so you have the USB C hole in the battery cover.
This listing is for a shell and battery cover. Buttons and Lens sold separately.
Our on-line store is open 24/7 and we ship Monday through Friday, excluding some holidays. Most products ship within 1 business day from our warehouse in Pennsylvania USA. Orders will be shipped in the order they are received. Please select a shipping speed according to your needs.

I've used a few of these shells now and I have to say they are a perfect replacement. Other than a couple of loose screws holding the case together, they just work. **** holes are easy to fix though, so not a big deal. The picture of the red unit below is a little satire/parody project I did. I don't believe in the political structure it represents, but I find it funny and so do many others. Needless to say, I will be buying more when I need them. Keep up the quality products.
Pearl blue is a wonderful color. My Gameboy looks fantastic now with this shell. However, the look is not everything.. Even though it says the shell is IPS ready, I had to trim the screen area, because the shell was visible under the screen lens (with the Q5 Retro Pixel IPS LCD Kit and a glass screen lens). I also had to enlarge the contrast wheel cut out area, because the wheel of the IPS screen touched the shell and I could not rotate it. The pearl blue paint is also kind of sticky. I had to scrape away the paint inside the hole of button B because the B button got stuck really often. I still like this shell, it's wonderful. You get a wonderful looking handheld device once you are done with the little modifications here and there.
Could have sworn when I purchased ips ready shells a few years ago that they had Nintendo and game boy on the shell as well as start and select on it.
Thanks for reaching out! These shells did originally come with the logo and text above the buttons. Now a lot of companies are phasing out logos and text on their shells for several reasons. The photos seen on the product page are accurate depictions of the current shell markings. We only have a few variants left that have the console text. You can reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to see which ones are remaining.
Love this shell for my build!! Amazing hand feel and IPS ready will make for a perfect upgrade to an already amazing console!
