Item details

In Stock and Ready to Ship!

These shells are brand new, produced and offered exclusively through Retro Gamer Ryan. They match the dimensions of original shells perfectly, and are nearly indistinguishable from original shells! All PCBs I use (as well as a number of others, first- and third-party) have been tested and fit beautifully. Each shell comes complete with 3 Philips head screws, so you'll have everything you need to complete your latest project!

Standard Gray: Looks and feels just like the original!
Transparent Red: Add a bit of flair to your project and show off what's inside the cartridge!
Copper Gold: Each shell receives a copper gold paint coating (based on PANTONE 875) direct from the factory!

All prices include shipping within the US. For now, I'm only accepting orders within the US, until I figure out actual international shipping costs.

Buy in bulk to save! Quantities up to 250 are available directly through my Etsy store; if you need a larger quantity, feel free to contact me!

Many other colors are in the works! Be sure to follow me on Twitter and/or Facebook to keep up to date on the latest news!

Excellent quality and fast shipping.

The shipping was swift, however, the item is far from gold and shiny (bronze maybe). I noted that gold spray paint of some sort was used to attain the color over a translucent or white cartridge. Around the edges, the color was peeling, definitely not worth $8. But for the purpose needed it will do.

Standard first-class shipping on all products is free within the United States, with Priority Mail available as an upgrade. International shipping starts at $8 for Canada and Mexico, and $12 for the rest of the world.

Except during periods of high demand (or if a product is pre-ordered or back-ordered), all orders ship within 1-2 business days!

Returns & exchanges

All cartridges are covered by a 30-day replacement warranty (45-day for international buyers); if you have any problems with your game, just let me know and I'll ship out a replacement. I also include a prepaid return mailer for the defective cartridge with replacements in the US; international customers will have their return shipping reimbursed once the defective cartridge has been returned.

Please note that I do not guarantee my products to work on clone systems (Such as RetroDuo, SupaBoy, FC Twin, FC Mobile, etc.), since compatibility can be spotty depending on the clone console. I only guarantee my products to work on original NES, SNES and Genesis hardware.

In addition, this replacement warranty does not cover the NES "blinking light" problem, as that is a symptom of a worn-out cartridge connector, and is not an issue with the cartridge itself.
