Brand New Atari Jaguar Cartridge Shells

Recommended Posts

I recently had a mold made for Atari Jaguar cartridge shells and it has been finished and the first productions are off the press. They are 1:1 copies of the original. I can made other colors, so don't hesitate to ask. They are made in the USA so turn around time is quick. 

Price: $6.99 each

 

Colors in Stock Currently

Transparent Blue

Black

Looks great. It should be noted that a number of people that release their games on cart would not be interested in ordering these because of the inclusion of the Atari logo on the back. One of the stipulations Atari made when they released the Jaguar to the public domain was that their logo could not be used when releasing unlicensed content or product. Of course anyone at home that wants to do a shell swap isn't going to care about that and they may even prefer it.

Looks nice but as Hyper_Eye stated placing the Atari name/logo on there may not have been a good decision as you leave yourself open to potential pursuit for breach of copyright as Atari in one form or another are still a going concern.

 

I do not know if the decision to place the case screw entry points on the front was an anti-tamper device (damaged label = tampering) or just to hide them for aesthetic reasons and maybe homebrewers would prefer they remain on the front for anti tamper reasons but if you subsequently decide to re-tool the mould to remove the Atari name/logo it may be an opportunity to also consider moving the screw entry points to the rear of the cartridge so that if necessary (i.e. repairs) cartridges could be disassembled without damaging the label.

I think Wave1Games plans to use these blue ones for one of the upcoming games, I think Shark Byte or Fishin Frenzy. I like the clear blue. Anything to spice up the look of the jaguar would be nice

 

Now tho for someone who is able to make cart shells, can we get someone to make actual CONSOLE SHELLS such as more of the white, clear, or perhaps translucent red? I imagine those would sell very well if we could get some more shells made! They are made for the Dreamcast and PS1 and look gorgeous, and the Jaguar would look bad ass in translucent red!

That would be a very expensive proposition however if I could get the original shells I could probably make it happen.

for sure if there was a way to make them that would be awesome! Someone made the clear ones ages ago and they are no longer available.

Al has the molds for the console.

I don't know how well they would sell considering that there is not an available supply of Jag system boards.

You wouldn't need any new system boards. People can just swap out their old shells with the new ones.

We're the molds ever re-tooled to include the back panel? 

I am not sure.

As I say every time this even comes close to being mentioned, I would buy at least one clear Jaguar system case. Given my Jaguars seem to be mysteriously multiplying, probably more than one.

A clear shell or a transparent red shell would be awesome. Then we could SEE the 64 bits doing the math.

You are certainly not the first to mention this. I agree I think there is a demand for the system shells.

I would be in for at least one (maybe three!).  Does Al have the molds for the CD too?

The molds for the console shells were modified to mount that dental equipment, screw posts and the like. If new shells are ever cast, hit me up and I will design 3D printed brackets that the Jaguar mainboard can screw into securely without drilling into the new housing plastic.

Yeah, if matching CD unit shells are possible, I'd be in for an equal number of those. My grey CD unit would look all sad if it was sitting on a translucent red base unit.

Received 15 cart shells.  They are really well done.  Better than I expected.  Very detailed.  Looks like they came from original molds.  Thank you
