  • Hello! A little about us

    Hello and thanks for checking us out!

    I started collecting in 2012 after visiting Cars Land for my son, Ethan's Make-A-Wish trip to meet Lightning Mcqueen and Mater. When we returned home I bought a few cars for the kids to play with, then got hooked! Collecting became a way for me to connect with Ethan as Batten disease slowly took over his body, and it also became a way to help keep me and my mind busy. Ethan passed away in March of 2013 at the age of 4, about 2 months before his first birthday. Shortly after that I got caught up on my collecting once I had 1 of everything that I could reasonably get. Still feeling a need to keep the Cars connection going, I decided to start selling in June of 2013. We now buy full collections either packaged or loose, we order from Mattel weekly, and package and ship items most days of most weeks.
    Our full selection of Cars is available on Ebay (user name getmecollectiblesllc, search "disney cars save5"), and we try to have as much selection as possible. We ship every packaged item in a box with bubble wrap or similar cushioning to protect the package, and are willing to search our inventory to find the best packaging when requested. We offer full cases either on Ebay or through email. We inspect the contents of every case to make sure that your case is not missing the desirable Cars that you want. We package every case into another box with cushioning to make sure that your case arrives safely. Current pricing for full cases is as follows. All orders are also charged actual shipping cost.

    Cars singles case $95
    Cars 2 pack case $95
    Cars Mega Case $48
    Planes Singles Case $72
    Planes Fire and Rescue Singles Case $83
    Planes Fire and Rescue Mega Case $60
    RS 500 case of 6 $41

    We also offer Hot Wheels cases on request.
    We are currently not very large so we do not carry every item in stock. We try to carry a few extras of the good cases in case you need one right away, but most of our full case orders are currently pre-orders. Mattel has a claimed turn around of 10 days but reality has been a minimum of 2 weeks with new cases arriving whenever Mattel wants to ship them, which is not easy to predict.
    If you would like to order a full case, send an email to with "case from PCD" in the subject line

    Looking to sell some cars? Send us an email with what you have and your asking price.

    We respond to every email, usually within a few hours but never more than a day.

    Last Summer, my Wife Kristine and I also started a non-profit in our son's name called Ethan's Reason (.org or on FB) with a focus on spreading awareness of Batten Disease and helping families have fun with their loved ones while coping with Batten Disease. Please check it out and show your support!

    Thanks for reading!

                  I have added about 200 Cars items in the last week and have been trying to price them near the bottom of Ebay prices so check it out! I have a few hundred more to add hopefully in the coming week.
