Game Boy DMG CNC Machined Aluminum Shell


Anodize: Clear Anodize
Sale price$142.00


By far the biggest Game Boy we have made yet.  This is a CNC machined from billet aluminum housing for the Game Boy DMG.  Includes machined front housing, rear main housing, battery access panel, thumb screw and fasteners.

Main features:

  • Cutout for screen in the front housing is larger to accommodate larger aftermarket screens - no housing cutting should be required
  • Can use 4xAA batteries if you purchase the 3d printed battery contact holders and the metal battery contacts
  • Room to modify - There is a type C cutout on the bottom and also additional room in the battery compartment if you would like to add a battery, type C board and a voltage regulator.  We do not yet have instructions for this modification - stay tuned!  
  • Any plastic buttons will fit, or you can choose our metal buttons
  • Screens that fit
    • Stock Screen
    • Funnyplaying screen kit- You will need to devise a method to hold the screen and the glass is slightly too large.  
    • RIPS V5 screen kit - Fits, however you will need to use our 3d printed bracket to locate the screen. This is not yet available, check thingiverse for the download.

    Other parts you need:

    Nintendo board and plastic power button from your original game boy.

    Button set (Plastic buttons can be used if desired)

    3d printed top battery isolator

    3d printed bottom battery isolator

    Battery contact - x3

    Buttons silicone set

    Adapter to locate your aftermarket screen

    Front glass - Keep in mind the stock screen painted rectangular opening is smaller than most aftermarket screen kits, so get the correct one.  NOTE: The Funnyplaying glass is ever so slightly too large to fit these aluminum shells.  So close in fact, that some do actually fit.  You could make the glass fit by sanding the glass edge.

    1. These parts are not mass produced and  we use multiple machine shops, so surface finish, texture, and color may vary between batches and even part to part. Colors may also look different depending on your screen, the lighting, and variations in anodizing.
    2. Inventory may be slightly off due to these variations and potential damage of parts-- though we adjust for it, this is difficult to predict and we may have fewer of any item than anticipated.
    3. Please be sure to review our refund policy for cancelled and returned orders.
    4. Please see our FAQ page for information about international orders, import fees, and tariffs. We do not change the value of the shipment.
