    So I bought a GBA today and as well as eventually installing a backlight mod I want to buy a new shell for the console.

    I'm looking at something like this, they all seem to be around this price range regardless of the seller. Just wondering if anyone has bought something similar.
    I'm worried the plastic is going to have that very cheap feel and look to it rather than what Nintendo's official shells look and feel like.

    I don't have experience with the old gba but I bought an aftermarket orange sp case and I was happily surprised with the build quality. I think it was like 5 bucks. The only problem was that it took a while as it came from china
