I've made a custom GBA SP with IPS screen before but I've never done the original GBA. I used a Funnyplaying IPS screen and a shell, lens and buttons from RetroSix. The shell is very nice, much better than the ones out of eBay/China I also have. It fits together well and has a soft-touch rubberised feel to it. Really nice to hold and play!

The battery pack is also from RetroSix, and so far, so good. I can charge my GBA on the same charger as my Switch :D

Couple that all with my new Everdrive X5 Mini and I've got the perfect GBA handheld I reckon. Love this thing!

Have any of you made an IPS GBA? How'd it go?

Bought the RIPS V3 for original Gameboy. Combined with precut Gameboy shells, it was one of the easiest mod I ever did that resulted in a new life for a damaged Gameboy.

Wish I done the Gameboy Advance one first because I have more GBA games than original Gameboy games in my collection.

Wow. It looks great and you're also a great with a digital camera as your shots could pass as an advertisers product. The GBA has some really great games so I hope you get to play the fuck out of your new creation.
