Enthusiast Launches Stunning Metal Shells For Retroid Pocket 2 & 2S

A stunning metal shell replacement for the Retroid Pocket 2 has just been listed on Etsy by a member of the DIY community.

It would seem that good news comes in pairs lately, as we just heard of an unrelated fan made metal shell for the Analogue Pocket this week as well.

I’m a big fan of metal shell handheld consoles and I have been begging for one for the Anbernic RG351V.

With the Retroid Pocket 2 being many people’s favorite handheld of all time, it makes sense to finally see the community make a metal variant come to reality.

HistcoEnterprise has taken the task upon themselves to endure the painstaking process of recreating the Pocket 2 shell from scratch. Which surely is not an easy thing to do. And as far as we can tell, it’s looking pretty spot on!

This is a full front and back shell replacement that you can install yourself. And it comes in absolutely gorgeous looking gold, blue, and gun metal grey colorways.

Surely, if the project is supported, we will see more color options and maybe even a Pocket 2S shell replacement next?

If anything is better than a metal shell for one of the best handhelds of all time… You can even pay to have HistcoEnterprise send you a fully re-skinned Retroid Pocket 2 or Retroid Pocket 2+ already inside the metal shell.

This is a nice option if you are worried about your ability to do it yourself. It’s pretty awesome to know you can just buy a metal shell Retroid Pocket 2 with no need to do a thing yourself besides open the box and enjoy.

Fans of the Retroid Pocket 2 (there are a ton of them!) will surely be pretty happy to see this beautiful new option introduced to the market.

And we are happy to share this incredible news with our readers.

What retro handheld console would you like to see get a fan-made metal shell next? And if anybody out there has the ability – please make me a metal shell RG351V and I will love you forever.
