We've made changes to this listing to make it more clear that the Nintendo logo cutout is not included. We've also added more information regarding trimming that we recommend for IPS kits. All changes made to this listing are archived at this link.

The prestige Game Boy Advance SP shell from RetroSix is a custom made high quality ABS shell. These shells are great for restorations or IPS installs with just a few easy trims.

Note: Although RetroSix mentions no cutting is required for IPS screens, we have found it is better to trim/snap off the small stumps inside the shell. They also do not have a cutout for the Nintendo logo sticker. 


  • Custom molded made with high quality ABS plastic.
  • Easy-to-trim design makes it a stellar choice for IPS kits and original screens alike.
  • Full shell replacement 
  • The best hinges to use with these shells are these aftermarket ones. OEM and other hinges will be loose in the hinge housing.
  • Clear variants will be more frosted than crystal clear.
  • Includes plastic screen lens, however, this is not needed if you are planning to install an IPS LCD kit.


  • 1x Full front shell
  • 1x Full back shell
  • NO logo cutout
  • 1x Screw kit
  • 5x Matching screw covers
  • 1x Ribbon cover piece
  • 2x Matching hinge covers
  • 1x LED cover
  • 1x Battery door
  • 1x Original Sized Plastic Lens (non-IPS)

Right size, cheap plastic

The molding was great and everything new fit perfectly, the battery, screen, and buttons all fit fine. The problem lies within the plastic itself, its very cheap, I am quite careful with my consoles, and especially when something is new. That being said, I’ve has this new shell for only 2 weeks and i have cracks in multiple areas. Also, when I was first assembling the new shell and other components I noticed the pilot holes for the screws were all too small, making it difficult to avoid stripping. Multiple issues have lead me to a low review score and I will be trying some other brand next time.

Thank you for your review! Depending on where the cracks are, these may be due to pressure within the console. Shoot us a message at so we can discuss this further with you and provide a solution.

bought it for parts

website wasn't really clear, and as cheap as the case was I figured I should get it just in case there's a problem with the other case I purchased for the IPS. Ended up using the sticker button on the screen screws from this kit as they have adhesive.

Pretty but poor functionality

This shell looks great but I had a **** of a time putting it together. The shell does not really fit the original screws and the screws it comes with do not thread into their holes well and seem to be a weird size between 0 and 00 making screwdriver selection difficult and leading to a lot of frustration trying to assemble the case

Love them

Good quality products


By far my favorite shells. High quality and clean looking. If you're reshelling your Gameboy, get these.

Matte Black shell

Turns out the matte black shell is a huge fingerprint magnet! YIKES! Also the screws included in the kit are cheap and snapped off in the bottom two holes for the front facing screen plate when reassembling. These cases come pre cut for ips screen replacements, which is nice just be careful when tightening the screws! I just wasn’t aware of the fingerprints and cheap screws! Now I need a new shell again!

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