Retro Game Restore has just opened pre-orders on a clear top shell for the original Japanese Famicom. The price came to about $80 total including shipping to the US and should ship this summer. Check out the video below if you’d like a better idea of how it will look installed in your console:

You can also purchase (or pre-order) this, as well as other RGR clear shells right from CastleMania Games:
As always, I need to address the price (and it’s frustrating that I have to explain this every time): You get what you pay for. While yes, it is expensive, these high quality injection molds are extremely expensive to make and RGR doesn’t sell the quantities required to bring the price down. I’ve purchased every case they’ve made so far and each time my opinion is the same: Not everyone will want to spend that much on a shell, but people who are looking for a high quality replacement will definitely feel like they’ve got their money’s worth!
