When Toys Come Full Circle!

Years back I was mostly into collecting McFarlane sports figures.I remember making a deal with my nephew who was around 7 at the time,that for every “A” he received on a test or homework assignment , I would let him pick one figure or bobble head from my collection.The little genius went on to ace most of his tests and homework assignments and pretty much made off with most of my collection LOL!Flash forward to the present,and my nephew is now 18  years old and like most 18 year old’s,has a whole new set of interests.Since then the figures   have been in his attic collecting dust and knowing how I’ve gotten back into collecting,  I was  asked repeatedly by my sister,brother-in-law and nephew to pick them up because frankly they weren’t going to do anything with them and they were taking up space.So 12  years later these figures have boomeranged their way back into my collection and while a part of me really wanted my nephew to hang on to them and continue the collecting tradition, I also knew that collecting just wasn’t his thing.These figures will be mainstays in my collection on the strength of their sentimental value and will be be properly showcased here on Action Figs and Things!
