    So I totally got a Gameboy Micro for 35 dollars and it's in REALLY good shape except for the faceplate. First of all it's blue, not quite my favorite color. It's also scratched to all hell. Anyone willing to sell one? Know a site? I can't view the trading section so please don't just link it to it.


    Edit, Yes I looked around, and if you find something by just googling it then you are awesome. I would prefer a flat silver or black one. Not one with a crazy design. Unless I absolutely have to.

    You should probably wait until you have 100 posts and are allowed in the trade board before posting this. Or take out the thing about asking if anyone is willing to sell one.

    Hey, at least you found one. I still trying to find a site that isn't sold out. Can't use ebay since I can't use PayPal. Where did you get it?

    Local person. Got it on craigslist. eBay has plenty if you are willing to spend the money, and I've been here since 2008. I should be able to browse that damn section! Lol, these aren't meant to be harmful words in anyway so don't take it that way.

    I've owned a bright pink GBM for about 18 months. One of the best handhelds I have ever owned, probably clocking up more hours on it than any other handheld. On the downside to this the faceplate has picked up a few scratches and I'm also on the prowl for replacement faceplates.

    Likewise I will let anyone know if I find any online.

    There was one online retailer which were selling a pack of 7 or so Marvel faceplates for £17. I e-mailed them as they were out of stock but replied saying that they have been expecting a delivery of them for months.

    Thanks for the link, however it seems the shop it out of stock.

    I also tried buying a faceplate off the eBay link, however I couldn't complete the transaction as the seller's based in the US and despite letting me know he could post to the UK, I couldn't proceed through the process as I couldn't select the UK as an option for delivery.
