Behold the holy grail of Game Boy DMG Shells. The Game Boy DMG Prestige IPS Ready Shell Kit is designed specifically for the ultimate Game Boy DMG build.


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.

Our shells are drop-in so IPS screens can simply dropped in with no cased 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 XL without any cutting required.


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.

Awesome shell

Great shell

Works great and looks great

Glorious Shell

The shell was perfect, exactly what I had expected. The provided screws were not good so I ended up using the original screws, other than that, everything went well.

Good for the money

Not a bad shell; nice to have all the IPS ready cuts out of the box. Would give 5 stars but there are some very small vestigial plastic brace stems still on the 2 cases I received; nothing a box-cutter blade can't make quick work of but just had to give them a quick once over to make sure there was nothing a build could get snagged on.

Not good quality, expected more

when i got the shell with my order i thought the color was nice but didnt match the website pictures. Then i started to assemble the gameboy in this shell and upon **** the shell down, 2 of the 6 **** posts were not catching and stripped out using the provided screws. I ended up throwing the shell out because it wasnt worth the hassle.

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

Very nice except...

It's a great replacement case, I ordered the black with an IPS screen and it came out beautiful. Except, it is missing the lettering for the 'A' button
