This shell set has the look of a Game Boy Pocket on the outside, but uses Game Boy Color electronics inside.
This CNC machined aluminum front and rear shell allows you to convert your Game Boy Color to a Game Boy Pocket styling by removing the IR Led's. This includes both front and rear aluminum housings, and a color matched metal bezel. Use our kit builder on this page to make a custom bundle kit. The price shown on this page is for the metal shells (housings) only. Please view your cart to see the total price.

Please refer to our FAQ page if you have further questions.
- 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. Colors can vary from part to part - black is the least noticeable.
- Please be sure to review our refund policy for canceled and returned orders.
- 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.
- 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.
