I finished another modded Nintendo Game Boy yesterday, this one a commission from a fellow musician. All the usual mods of course.

I really like working on the Play it loud models and the yellow ones in particular. There rarely are any problems with them and the shells are always in good shape. The same goes for red, black, blue and green which also was made in great plastic at the time.

Many of the original grey shells however almost always have yellowed with age to some degree. The Clear / Skeleton model may look the best but it’s the worst one to work with. It has the most brittle plastic of them all so it’s super easy to break something. You almost never find any original Clear case that doesn’t have some sort of a dent or crack in it.
