    To be fair, by the time you pay shipping from outside the UK you are going to be looking at £14 at the least probably, especially for the blue one.

    The whole casing for £16.69, personally i would purchase that, keep the battery cover and top cover, then sell the left over housing on eBay as there will be someone out there with a snapped hinge who would just want the top and bottom inside sections. (i/e someone who has had their battery and top covers custom painted or as i saw the other day one that was LOL "flocked")

    Have you tried calling nintendo support? I have heard some success stories of getting replacement battery covers that way even on limited editions. Grab me a green animal crossing cover would ya? :P
