How to convince 12 yr old to give away toys?

My 12 yr old brother never plays with toys,video games or even reads books. But he buys and stores SO MANY. He has an overflowing toy box and there is no room for clothes in his closet because of all his toys. His bookshelf is breaking because he has too many books, but never touches any of them. The closets in the house are fully stocked with his video game figures and legos. If giving anything away is suggested,demanded, or implied, he squeals,cries, and has a meltdown over things he hardly pays attention to or uses. Any help on getting him to give things away?

    dont do anything to them.  He will love these things forever..get rid of them and you'll lose a brother...if he wants to be cramped and no room thats his matter how backwards it may seem to you, you have no right to make this decision for him..understand?

    Just let him be. Store all the toys in the storeroom or cellar.

    Some boys are just like that. This is life.
