    i went to my local goodwill today and i bought a Gameboy Micro for $3. it didn't come with a faceplate or charger. i found the charger on ebay but i cannot find a faceplate for it. can anyone direct me to a site that sells just the faceplate?

    Try DealExtreme. Just Google it, although anything you get from there won't be original/authorised.

    Every few months someone always asks this question.

    The answer is basically no.

    Or, be prepared to pay a lot.

    Maybe there should be a stickied post saying "Where to get GB Micro faceplates" letting everyone (who reads stickies before posting) know that they are scarce.

    Because they are older than dirt and older than paypal and they used the same ways we all used long before paypal existed.

    Those methods also were the same methods used by pre-paypal scammers back in the day. That is why VERY few people had game flashcarts, dumpers/rippers, etc for any platform before paypal.

    You don't absolutely need one to play the System right?

    Edit: By the way I just checked Ebay and they have a bunch of Faceplates up for sale...

    Skins are not faceplates. They are stickers.

    And $90 rare collector faceplates, I am guessing, don't count.
