About
The fit, feel and tolerance on 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.
Simply place your IPS screen in and push it to the top right (when looking down inside the shell installing the screen) to perfectly center it. For a professional fitting we sell a 3D bracket to hold the LCD in position.

The Pearl series have a pearl finish that reflects light differently at different angles, making the shell have an amazing glow when moving it around. The finish is matt, and treated with our own special anti-slip rubber. This gives your console an ultra-premium feel and luxury finish.

The front shell has an extra wide window opening, and inside has the wall reduced by the A/B/Start/Select buttons reduced, along with all other requirements to allow the IPS screen kits to simply drop into place.

Once you compare our shell with all the others on the market you will never look back!

History

In 2001, Nintendo delivered the next generation of portable entertainment into the hands of eager gamers. The Game Boy Advance gives you console-quality gaming in your pocket - and its bright, colorful and finger-intuitive design is still a classic. We spent over a year developing the perfect GBA shell. Spending over $20,000 that we will never get back, in the name of perfection.

After great success of our first mold, we spent a further $8,000 and made a new mold, perfecting the start/select buttons, opening out the window and altering the inside structure so that IPS screens can simply drop in with no modification whatsoever!

Cleaning

Pearl-series shells: We have tested multiple cleaning agents on the shells with success, and have heard that some individuals cleaning using a microfiber cloth along with a solvent may have the dye in the microfiber cloth come off on the shell. This has been observed only with solvents used with colored microfiber cloths.

This is a must have

The precut shells are an absolute must have. I have replaced the LCD many times and cutting the shell to fit the new screen is a pain in the neck. Took less than a minute to install. There’s no question I’m buying this again the next time I am installing the IPS LCD. I got the red pearl version with the anti-slip finish and it feels amazing. Very comfortable to hold. Please check out my installation video on YouTube

New shell and glass screen

Easy to install, guides helped so much, and tracking made it easy to know when my orders would arrive!

Great for a Christmas gift

Just modded up an old gameboy advance with the Prestige Red shell for a friend's Christmas gift -- definitely exceeded his expectations! Not much of a surprise, since we had been talking about different color combos and such. But still, we're reliving our childhood through new consoles. What more could I ask for?

Perfect

This was exactly what I needed for my GBA. Couldn’t have asked for a higher quality shell.

Amazing Screen

This screen is so much better than the AGS-101. I highly recommend buying the bracket for the screen to hold it in place and not use the double sided tape.
