    Hi, I'm new here :P

    And I was just wandering if anybody knew of a place online where I could purchase a Gameboy Advance game cartridge shell. You know, the plastic housing of the GBA rom chip?

    I've just recently purchased a few GBA games off e-bay, and a couple of them are in terrible shape cosmetically (bent plastic, signs of gnawing/abuse, etc) and it just doesn't look good in my collection :P

    I thought about maybe buying some crappy GBA games and using their shells, but I'm not a huge fan of that method...

    so does anybody have any suggestions?

    my local dollar store, dollarama, has like hundreds of copies of backyard sports GBA for $2 each. $2 for a replacement cartridge shell isnt bad.

    look around and see if you can find a Madden cartridge. nobody could feel bad about destroying a Madden game.

    I bought a custom painted one to put my pokemon sapphire pcb in after the original shell broke from kitsch-bent. They look nice, and they are painted nintendo shells, so they come with a game in them, but you can remove it.[​IMG]
