Anyone interested in GBA carrying case copies?

Post by Bush » Wed Jul 27, 2011 1:57 pm

I recently got one of those GBA shaped cases hailrazer and others have used. These are hard to come by, so I was thinking I might make a vac-formed copy and use that as a mold for other copies. If that interests anyone, I'd be happy to sell them on the cheap, just let me know. Here is a pic of the case for reference: Image

Depending on the price, I'd definitely be interested in buying one.

I would have to see how much the originals generally sell for first before really deciding.

Today I vacformed the case, and the resulting case will be the mold for the actual end product.

Pop of the buttons and d-pad. Fill in the fake speaker slots.

They aren't needed and without them you have a lot more options. :)

I made a mold of the bottom half so it would be easier to work with. Gotta do some sanding and filling, then I can make the end copies

I might be interested if I could see the result and have some measurements so that I could see if it would work for my parts.

These are smaller than actual GBAs, and they came with candy. I think I saw one at five below with the EXACT same case for like $4. I'll have to check though

No these are the cases that the GBA went into, not the candy case.

If not, what will take for me to get the original. You can make molds from other molds. :D :) :o :lol: :P
