    this topic re-floats from time to time and as of 2018 there doesn't seem to be a cheap solution. I'm myself looking for 100 empty box cases, either new or used and I can't find them anywhere except in 3-packs, cheap chineses knockoffs or at huge shipping rates and not cheap at all anyway. I don't want to go the UGC route as gen/md carts are loose inside, apparently.

    I've purchased a lot of replacement Genesis cases from customgamecases.com:

    https://www.customgamecases.com/onli...ases-c13253523
    *Currently out of stock but they'll get more.

    And while you can tell them apart from originals they are really good.

    I've posted some pictures of them here:

    Yes thanks those are good but they are out of stock most of the time and when they come back it's with an increased cost or costlier shipping rates, it's like they are trying to push you to buy their colored and/or printed cases which cost too much when you have 100 loose carts like me (and live in Europe...).

    EDIT: via Piko it's 485 $ for 100 boxes shipped to Europe, that's still more than 4 per box...

    The cheapest I would probably sell an original case in good shape would probably be like $5 each. I normally harvest them through my local media store which sells sports games relatively cheap and you can sometimes combine that with coupons.

    Black cases are back in stock.

    https://www.customgamecases.com/onli...esis-c14875773

    And it must be an error on the site. The smaller 5 pack is cheaper per case than the 25 pack.

    5 packs list for $12.50 ($2.50 each)
    and 25 packs list for $81.52 ($3.26 each)

    I just bought 100 cases (for my loose carts) from them at a cost of 2.65 (2.90 $) per unit, shipped to Europe (it is way cheaper if shipped to CAN or US). Wish me luck!

    Just take into account that non-standard sized games won't fit (all EA, Accolade & Codemasters games) but regular japanese do.
