I am in for a grey or black with “CM3” or “Sudo mod” text. I like all the designs. Both grey and black look amazing.

I would buy two CM3 right now. This is exactly what I am looking for.

Yaya, does that factory you are mentionning do custom ones per the unit? Probably a much higher price point, but is that even possible? I am working on a color themed gameboy and it would be awesome if I could respect the color code here.

I would want the blacket black that you ever can find!
I would love a custom screen myself, if I could choose the text and position though

how soon are you looking to pull the trigger on this? I'm doing my best to distance myself from anything "Game Boy Zero" on the CM3 builds, so this brought up a great point that all my screen surrounds still say Game Boy Zero, and I had completely missed that.

Seeing that I'll finish my builds shortly, let me know if this is something you might have in your hands rather soon?

(Black "Game Boy CM3" surrounds for me, all the way. I could do without the pi character too, it's redundant)

@Gaufre : the MOQ is 100 unit :shock:

@markolomew it depends on what you call soon lol. Within next week i will know the exact price and will offer them for preorder. But we are talking about a thousand dollar per model so the ordering will depend on how fast the preorders are put (let’s say 2 weeks). Then, the factory will make them in about 2 weeks, then shipped to me, let’s say one week express (if price is cool lol), then shipped back to you (let’s say one week)... we are talking about at least 8 weeks before one can apply them on a build

@sasherz : same reply as Gaufre, MOQ is 100 units so making a per customer custom is impossible.

Feedback:
1. These are awesome
2. Any chance of pure black, pure grey, with NO WRITING
3. White border - possibility?

As said before, this is going to be a factory process, and the factories i am trying to trade with, are not taking orders under 100 units PER model. Some of them are asking for 1000unit minimum, i just run away lol.

I don't have the final price, but it will be about 1000$ per model for 100 units... Making 10 or more different models to make everyone happy is impossible... It will be based on preorder because we are talking about too much money... at least for me. I am an individual, not a company.

GBZ and GBCM3 are popular, but not to the point to have a real market for that. How long do you think will it take to sell 100 white screen covers :?

The design must remain close to something iconic (the most original possible), and must be suitable for everyone... Zero and CM3 builds are very popular here, maybe Pi3 also, but adding the Pi3 would yet make 6 different models, so around 6k$ investment, and would take too much time to sell :?

Thanks for your understanding :)
