Legend of Zelda Custom Gameboy Color by matherite Legend of Zelda Custom Gameboy Color by matherite
This is a fully customized Legend of Zelda Gameboy Color. It has been completely disassembled, painted, and carefully reassembled. The base color is black with a gold Triforce and retro racing stripes design on the front. The volume, on/off, and ext ports are also painted gold (see inset photos). The back is black.The red power LED has been replaced with a bright white LED. The paintjob has been clearcoated for protection. There are some scratches on the screen, as the Gameboy was already used when I acquired it, but they do not interfere with gameplay at all. Speaker sound is loud and clear.

After a lot of time spent working on Xbox 360 controllers, I wanted to branch out, and the Gameboy Color is near to my heart as the second handheld I ever owned. Just holding it remind me of my childhood and the hours I spent playing games on it (including the very same Pokemon Silver cartridge you can see in the photo). I am very pleased with how this came out and I am excited for it to go to someone who will appreciate it as much as I do.

If you have any questions about this item or would like to order a customized handheld, Gameboy, controller, or other equipment, please feel free to email me at kt.custom.controllers [!at] gmail.com.

It is for sale here via etsy: [link] This handheld has been SOLD.

I've been wanting to make a custom gameboy color since forever! Unfortunately don't have the materials/know-how to do it. This is a badass piece of craftwork. Heh the pokemon silver cartridge reminds me of how I found my gold cartridge recently, I still have all my pokemon games for the gameboy/gameboycolor/gameboy advance :3

I'm glad you like them! And yeah, cost is an issue - but they are substantially cheaper if you send me whatever you want customized vs buying a new one. Just something to keep in mind. ;)

I haven't played the game boy since I was a kid, so looking at this is like:

WHAT'S THAT?

UGH. IN OUR WORLD OF WII'S AND BLAH, WE NO LONGER HAVE THE WONDER OF THE GAME BOY.

I still have my Game boy advance though. :meow: And a lot of others, actually...

I still have my GBA, but I hadn't had a Game Boy Color in years until I decided to start this project. Holding it is such a wonderful nostalgic feeling. :)

I know. Every time I look at my game cube or game boy advance it's simply... "I did that once?" And remember the times that Four Sword's graphics were amazing, and you thought it was the most realistic game ever? Then you go back and play it and you're like: "WHAT? But this was so cool when I was a kid!" And you suddenly feel old...

I've since upgraded to a DS Lite. I'm debating picking up a 3DS (just so I can play Ocarina of Time wherever I go!)

How can you possibly be debating? Your first thought should have been "I am so getting that". I have one and love it. I want to get Resident Evil Revelations and then Castlevania Lord of Shadows 2 and then on the release date this month (gonna wait till the store opens) Kingdom Hearts 3D. You have to get Kid Icarus because of the story multiplayer, gameplay, graphics, and also the bosses which gives a totally new meaning of badass.

You have to get 3ds. There is XL coming out soon so if you want the best graphics then get that.

The totally sucky launch titles really turned me off it for a while, to be honest. Right now it's just a question of what I want to spend money on (new phone vs tablet vs 3DS). Likely going to get the first two before the 3DS (regular, not XL) unless people start ordering a whole lot of controllers and game boys, lol.
