Yeah, yeah, I know. "Well, when a mommy GBC and a daddy GBC love each other very much, they connect their link cables and make a big wish..."

Seriously, though, I have a GBC that's been modded with a front light that can be toggled.

The round black button on the front turns the light on and off. It's not the highest-quality effect, but it works well in a pinch.

Does this sort of setup look familiar to anyone? Is there an online shop that does these sorts of things, or does it look more like a one-off from a hobbyist? I'm thinking about getting rid of it, but I don't want to mislead any potential buyers on the specifics.

Thanks.

Oh Jesus, I'm going to regret discovering that site. I just reorganized my desk, which is where all my handhelds are kept, and those custom stands would fill in a couple of logistical gaps.

Thanks for everyone's input. I was hoping to provide some additional info about its origins to potential buyers, but I think I'm just gonna have to go without.

(On that note, let me know if you're interested in a purple GBC with an amateurish front-light mod.)

haha. These guys make amazing stuff. Sadly, a lot of it they no longer list ... they used to make repro games too.

I wish I had more room to display stuff because RCG makes something for everything!
