If you’re collecting the Mattel Disney Pixar CARS and frankly, who isn’t … you might find you are running out of room … I’m eyeing this place as just about the right size for the collection as it’ll stand after 2008 …
Or something less fancy and more functional …
Or if you believe you can actually fit it all in your house now, reader Noel has a very classy solution, Ikea’s Detolf glass case with optional lighting kit – very nice and very classy – at a very nice affordable price.
Or a simple but functional bookcase from Ikea.
If money is no object, how cool would this look in your study? A custom-made old-style gas pump with the Dinoco logo? (Yes, this is the Sinclair Gas logo but you get the idea).
And while they might be now too small just to buy one now – how about this amazingly cool lighted CUSTOM display case for your CARS? (eBay link).
Not quite as customized for CARS but still cool looking … you might need to check with them if the CARS 1:55 fits onto their current cases …
This might be the first plastic case specifically for CARS.
I haven’t actually seen or touched one in person but I’m sure others will jump on the bandwagon soon.
If you prefer them in plastic cases – Carney is one of the largest places selling diecast display cases. There’s also Great Display Cases, Display It!, ClearWater, Aculine, , Cases for Collectibles or if you want a spinning thing (wouldn’t the CARS fly around?) – check out also at Carney.
Though again the CARS 1:55 are an unusual size, so be sure and check FIRST!
The companies above that sell the plastic display cases should also sell the enclosures if you prefer to store the CARS unopened and sealed.
Or there’s this from Wal*Mart – it’s cool but small (only about 2 feet tall) – you can either use it to toss in all your CARS and playsets if you don’t mind some paint loss and dings 🙂 or perhaps you can get like 10 of them to store all your unopened singles …
NOTE – I have NOT ordered from most of the companies listed above (well other than Ikea) so I am not necessarily recommending them … just offering you some links. Good luck!
(yes, this post was originally part of the HOW TO COLLECT post but I could never remember when people asked me about display cases 😉 )
