Yes, the blue casing is 3rd party remember seeing a lot of them on the internet a few years back. The stickers don't mean much you can easy glue them back on :)
didnt sega make a line of replacement shells (top half) at the end of the dreamcast's life? iv seen a yellow and a red one and im pretty sure iv seen a blue one to :)
and in that i mean 1st party not the nasty looking 3rd party ones lol :)
It's an official replacement cover for Dreamcast. However it looks like someone got creative with the power and eject-buttons and replaced them with black ones instead of the grey ones. Probally the person 'making' this used a 'sports edition' Dreamcast for this.
I'm pretty sure the HK cases didn't have the markings - but the official Sega ones did. It may be an official Sega replacement shell... I can't remember the colours off hand though.
(it may also be that someone removed the original sticker and put it on a HK case as well...) Eitherway, it still looks great :)
EDIT:: Sorry! I didn't see the posts above (I was on page 3 I think!) and I thought I was at the end of the thread...
(me walks quietly away...)

makes sense now lol so it still use's proper sega parts ect and modded in away that it looks far rarer to the untrained eye :)
just waiting on the matching pad for this now (clear blue/black) but now i know its just a very smart looking modded DC and nothing else (tbh it looked alot like the US sonic dreamcast minus sonic logo)
cheers guys :thumbsup:
I used to have an official Black replacement case. It was the top half only and everything was black including the buttons.It's an official replacement cover for Dreamcast. However it looks like someone got creative with the power and eject-buttons and replaced them with black ones instead of the grey ones. Probally the person 'making' this used a 'sports edition' Dreamcast for this.
I sprayed the bottom half to match and it looked awesome. There used to be a thread about it on this forum but that was long before the purge, maybe some of the older members will remember.
cool man really love another color as in red or yellow but my god i carnt find anything about them anywhere and when i find somthing the threads are 3 years + old :(
thh a black one would be cool also :0
lol no probs man....its black with NTSC-U stickers ect but heres a odd thing its a REV-0 model MB with heat pipes man this DC is strange!!!! weren't they the first batch of dreamcast's released????
Were there ever official (or unnofficial) solid color cases as opposed to the transparent ones? I'd love a solid black or a solid silver top half for my sports DC...
