View Full Version : Did Japan get any good GB Micro faceplates?

I love my GB Micros, but I'm sick of the lack of faceplates. To me, that was a major selling point, but as we know, it went nowhere. Nintendo dropped the GB Micro faster than a Virtual Boy tied to a brick.

Did Japan's GB Micro face the same fate? Did Japan get a lot of faceplates to choose from? If so, where would be the best place to import such things?

They got a limited edition Super Robot Wars faceplate that I would possibly consider killing to acquire. They also got others that match the many colors that we didn't get (as usual).

I'm with you on this one... where are the faceplates?! My Micro could really use a fresh one.

Is there a definitive list of faceplates ? I have 5 or 6 different ones.

I'm just glad mine came with three, in case one gets scratched.

Well, there was the official release of the one that looks like a Player1 Famicom Controller. Then there was a club nintendo release of a Player2 Controller.

I wonder if there's a way to make your own.
