 Game Boy Color Machined Aluminum Shells - Full Set

This machined aluminum shell allows you to convert your Game Boy Color to have a backlit color screen.  This includes both front and rear aluminum housings. 

We offer two options for our shells as we transition our inventory.  

      Shell Option 1. IPS recommended only shell

      Shell Option 2. Funnyplaying Retro Pixel 2.0 Q5 laminated or Retro Pixel 1.0 (Non-laminated).  Can also fit Funnyplaying IPS if you devise a way to hold the screen as it is smaller.

If you would rather have a fully functional custom unit built for you, contact one of the builders from our list:  Builders List


  • Custom aluminum CNC machined front and rear housings
  • Oval side cutout for use of a Type-C DC conversion board
  • Steel fasteners included
  • Click Here for assembly guides 
  • Fastener size is M2 (4mm and 6mm long included)
  • Touch sensors can be tricky, so be prepared.  I have had some luck using conductive copper tape with a wire soldered to it.  I stick the copper tape to the inside of the lens without touching anything. You will notice a rectangular notch where the lens is installed.  You can also drill a hole in the plastic piece at the top.  Then, put a small fastener through, and solder a wire to the inside of the fastener.

    The following are other Game Boy Color parts to complete your custom build:

    1. Original Game Boy Color

    2. Backlit screen - This depends on which shell you choose as we have two shell versions.  

    3. Wire - 28-30 awg works great

    4. Kapton tape can be helpful


    If you find a part out of stock, visit our central location for part availability. It shows what colors are on order and also an estimated time to receive parts.  Unfortunately, we cannot yet order every color as the volume of parts would be too large for us.  Typically, we order 3 colors at a time, so you may need to wait until a color is made.

     Please refer to our FAQ page if you have further questions.


    1. These parts are not mass produced and  we use multiple machine shops, so surface finish, texture, and color may vary between batches. Colors may also look different depending on your screen, the lighting, and variations in anodizing.
    2. Please be sure to review our refund policy for cancelled and returned orders.
    3. Please see our FAQ page for information about international orders, import fees, and tariffs. We do not change the value of the shipment and we do not have control over your particular country's fee/tariffs/taxes.
    4. Brass parts come as machined and may show oxidation/discolor.  Assume you will need to do your final surface finishing using a flexible 3M sanding pad.  (The 3M 7448 usually works well).  Then, apply clearcoat, poly, or other coating to maintain the shine.
