Welcome to ShrunkCollectibles.com!
I’ve loved action figures all my life.
I’m a child of the 80’s and I still remember the very first Star Wars figure I ever got.
Not a Luke Skywalker or a Darth Vader, but a 1983 Kenner figure of ‘Admiral Ackbar’ from Return of the Jedi that my parents bought me from our local toy store.
I grew up in a small town in New Zealand so in those days toys like this were harder to get than they are now and much more expensive.
Despite the Admiral not exactly being the most well know, good looking or charismatic of the Star Wars characters from Return of the Jedi 😊, I was just stoked to have him.
And so began my obsession with collecting action figures.
Getting a mid 1980’s Transformer ‘Soundwave’ not long after and then an SAS styled Action Man just wetted my appetite for an even further range of collectibles.
Over the years my interest has expanded into Lego, Matchbox cars, model trains and models generally but if I was to be honest I’d have to say action figures have always been my first love.
And this is where the idea for ShrunkCollectibles came from!
I wanted a place I could review and showcase the kind of collectibles I was excited about.
I also thought it would be a great way to learn more about the history of some of these collectibles and make all this information easily available to other people like me who just love this stuff.
And so we have ShrunkCollectibles!
As you’ve probably guessed by now the name ‘ShrunkCollectibles’ is just a reference to the fact that all the collectibles stuff I seem to love and include on the website is just simply on the ‘smaller’ side of things.
Also just to be completely upfront about everything, I also wanted to let you know that I make money on ShrunkCollectibles by operating as an Affiliate Website.
I don’t actually sell on the website any of the products we review.
But what I do do is provide links out to other websites (like Amazon.com) where you can buy these products from.
Then if you click on one of these links and make a purchase from that other website, I get a small commission on the sale direct from that other website – and at NO COST to you.
Any money I make from these affiliate commissions helps me to keep ShrunkCollectibles running and allows me to keep improving the website and adding more content.
So please spend some time, have a look around and I hope you enjoy everything on ShrunkCollectibles as much as I’ve enjoyed putting it all together.
This is all still a work in progress too so please come back from time to time and see what’s new!
And if there is ever anything at all I can help you with about any of the collectibles on the site, or just some general questions about collecting you might have, please don’t hesitate to drop me a line here, I’d love to hear from you.
