Clear Cartridge Shells for Repros?


Recommended Posts

Not sure if this belongs here, but I've been looking to make a few reproductions. However, I want them to look drastically different so I'm considering going the clear and colorless cartridge route. I've found people selling clear shells for NES, SNES, N64, Game Boy... However, as one might expect, my #1 wanted reproduction is Mother 3. Yet, I can't find a clear GBA shell that's also colorless. Anyone know where I can turn to? (I've even found clear Vectrex and Jaguar shells! Is this a sick joke? lol)

Clear colorless Gameboy shell is what they used for Gameboy color. So it wouldn’t be a 100% obvious repro for Gameboy.
 

Maybe since they dont do Gameboy that way, they also don’t do Gameboy Advance that way. I could imagine the Gameboy and GBA shells being done by the same supplier

There are differences between Game Boy and Game Boy Color, primarily the area above the label being concave vs convex. However, there's plenty of clear Game Boy cartridge shells. (Haven't really looked at GBC.) All GBA shells that are clear are all colorized, presumably because of making bootleg Pokemon games.

The only colors I've seen being produced are the pokemon color schemes, so clear and opaque green, clear and opaque red, clear blue, and of course black. My mother 3 repro is in a clear red shell and I dig it that way, mother themed kinda
