About ActionCity

It began in 1998, when two toy enthusiasts Mr Tan Tong Hong and Mr David Chong met at the weekly Sunday flea market at Clarke Quay and set up the toy shop The Hourstor in the same location the following year. Focused on selling toy collectibles and action figures, The Hourstor grew into the first ActionCity store which opened at The Heeren, Orchard Road, in 2000.

Upon incorporation, ActionCity clinched the sole distributorship rights for Hot Toys and BE@RBRICK by Medicom Toy the following year, as well as collaborations with brands including Disney, Pop Mart, ToyQube and tokidoki. The brand grew into a retail chain of stores in prominent locations including Bugis Junction, Funan, Takashimaya and VivoCity, and is now the eponymous retail brand in Singapore for pop culture art toys and collectibles.
