I am not commenting on if either is a fake or not since I have no clue, and breakphase suggests they are both the real deal.  What I find interesting about both is that the text looks so worn on both, especially under start and select, but also on the Game Boy logo, maybe on both, can't tell, but definitely on the second one.  Seems odd since the Manchester United logos and text are all intact.

I don't recall seeing this on any of mine except for one that was scraped up and missing some chunks of the plastic.  How is all of that applied (I thought it was dye subbed)?  What would cause that sort of degradation, and is it common?

What you want to see is the display with something on it.  A game, or even the bar when no cart is present, would help verify that it is at least partially functional.

StarLord, if you really are a potential buyer, notice that there is nothing on the screen.  It could just be that the contrast needs to be adjusted.  I notice that you and Mershed have only posted in this thread (edit: I see that you did an intro post now).  I would recommend buying from someone with more of a reputation, or, at the very least, halfway decent pictures showing that it is working, and not just that the backlight panel lights up...speaking of which, I don't see the power LED, which is odd for those from the last several years.

What backlight is in it Mershed?

is there anyone who sells replacement lcds?

kitsch was working on replacements.

Somehow I missed this update.  I was on the site looking for parts for a themed design, saw this and said "of course it is purple, of course it has silver text, of course this will go great with my Toxic Green DMG...".  If these will be around for a while I will pick one up whenever I place another order.  I want to put clear green buttons in it, but I don't know how they will look (brown where the colors overlap?).  How do those silicone sets feel compared to a good set of the OEM ones?

Really awesome stuff.

I was hoping we were doing binary conversion...oh well.  I will just go back to my geeky world.

That was the link I posted.  It is a really cool resource when looking for some of the less known stuff.

Edit: Oh, they updated it at some point...

an icard I had laying around.

I saw one of these a few years back and had completely forgotten to find out what it was until I saw these pics.  Thanks.

Damn, that is really starting to look good.  I wish I could do stuff like that and not have it look like pre-school arts and crafts, because I have some really dumb ideas for a tablet.

Don't you love that "Toxic Green"?  I typically prefer my buttons a different color than the case, but everything about this looks great.

I love the Toxic Green! Since this post I have changed a few things though.
-swapped backlight for a green one.
-black screen cover
-glow in the dark silicone buttons
green metal shielding inside
(I love green haha)
I totally agree with you about button/case colours though.

Sounds like some really good choices.  The painted shielding is a nice little touch imo.  I have some with black and green.

Pics or it didn't happen!

Will you be adding the Nanoloop one (and maybe two) carts?
