Looks Great, Bad Durability/QC

The shell looks great and I really like the matte black plastic! It's a letdown though because after only dismantling the shell/console once after the initial install, BOTH of the middle **** posts were stripped and unusable. The screws just fall out, I can still use the shell, and I plan to, but it doesn't look good from the back and you can tell it's not closed all the way. This is honestly unacceptable considering this isn't supposed to be a "cheap" shell. I've handled cheaper shells much rougher and haven't had an issue with **** posts.


Looks great! Unfortunately, feels a little flimsy, and the glass lens is a little loose around the edge, and not as flush as stock or FunnyPlaying shells.

Pretty good shell

I did an all white mod and this shell was perfect. Closed together well with original screws, and looks and feels really good!

Bad Shell

Y’all really need to change the hardware you provide with these shells or something.. I used to rarely have problems, but 90% of the time I have to order a second shell because the **** posts strip the second you put a **** in them. Getting real tired of this… For now, I’d shop elsewhere. They’re beautiful shells, especially the matte black ones, but it’s either the quality of the shell material has changed, the hardware sucks, or I’m just now realizing these aren’t that good of quality after all this time. Super disappointed in my purchase. Again.. going to try a warranty exchange on this one as I’m actually within the date, but having to do that EVERY TIME I order a shell in 2023, has been quite ridiculous.

Thanks for your feedback! Please reach out to us at if you haven't already, so we may look into this with you.

Great buy

The price is perfect for this shell, very well made, easy install with the IPS screen I got as well. I like the authentic looking sticker for the back too!

I got the matte black version, paired with white buttons. Very clean build, makes for a very slick looking Pocket.

Shells are JUNK

These shells from retrosix are the worst shells. The screws are not long enough and just tear up the **** posts. After which you will never be able to use the shell since the gameboys design is needs it clamped shut to move the power switch. I'd recommend any other brand that Hand Held Legend sells as retrosix is the only brand I have had these issues with. HHL is great and retrosix is terrible.
