Fed up with the quality of most shells from China, we partnered with RetroSix to release our very own Game Boy Advance shell and proud to showcase it. We're confident you'll fall in love with it as we did making it. https://buff.ly/2TvLcuM

Another sharp build, this time by Gracie Lucas (https://buff.ly/2V3wKMY)... reminds us of some other builds we shared a while back, although this is more pastels. Just lovely. Thank you, Gracie!

W O A H ! What a sharp looking console from John Schaeffer (https://buff.ly/2V1Z1Ug) that he shared with us... it even glows in the dark. Something about the frosty appearance of the shell and the crystalline purple buttons really gets our attention, especially with the white lens. Well done, John.

Ever heard of Newton Rings? Maybe not the name, but we're sure you've seen them... the 'liquid drop' like look under an LCD. Today we cover what they are and how to eliminate them... even though it sounds funny how it's done! https://buff.ly/3akIAYt

Ok so it’s not the first pure-white Game Boy Color we’ve seen, but they always catch our attention. You know, we haven’t seen an all-white Game Boy Advance or SP. Anyone have one they want to show off?
