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.


  • IPS ready. Simplify the installation of your Game Boy DMG RIPS V5 IPS Backlight.
  • Q5 LCD kits will require the viewing window to be modified.
  • Shell can still be used for regular Game Boy's without IPS screens. Original screens still fit perfect without any modifications.
  • The Pearl series includes a Matte anti-slip finish which creates a soft touch.
  • A majority of these shells will no longer have the "For Nintendo Game Boy" text as they are being phased out. Only Pearl White, Pearl Blue, and Clear will have applicable text. 
  • Clear variants will be more frosted than crystal clear.


  • 1x DMG Prestige Shell
  • 1x Battery Cover
  • 1x Set of screws and EXT port cover



  • As of 9/26/23 - Pearl White, Pearl Red, and Pearl Purple variant are currently not a perfect color match for Pearl White, Pearl Red, and Pearl Purple shell.
  • Created by RetroSix.

I've bought about 11 of these

The Matte black is so smooth. It also holds an autograph very well. Best color alive


The shell was cut wrong and the buttons get stuck

10/10 would recommend

purchased the modified shell in white, along with a new screen, buttons and a couple others.. I wound highly recommend not only if you want to upgrade your classic gameboy, but if you enjoy getting to see the insides of the console and getting to truly appreciate what you do to it. Highly recommend.

Poor quality shell

The start and select button don't even fit the rubber buttons. Needed to be filed down and now it's looks rubbish. And the buttons are still not easy to press.


Very clean shell! Quite the show stopper!

Javier Soltero-Brown

When I first received the shell I was a little put off by the texture of the paint, it’s a bit softer than the gritty plastic of the original DMG. However the install was great, a little tough to get the shell to click together at the end. The cutouts were perfect for the new screen. The power jack was a little tight across from the link jack. I got used to the texture after a while so it’s good. Also the a button is getting stuck, I might have to trime some paint.
