She is without a doubt the most iconic Pinay superhero of all time. 

No other komiks character is better suited to get the honor of being the first to be given the Funko Pop! treatment than the legend herself, Darna. 

Darna is the first Filipino superhero to have a Funko Pop collectible.

There remains to be no official launch date for the figure, which was revealed at the second day of the ToyCon 2019 held at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City. It is part of a panel celebrating the upcoming 70th anniversary of the beloved superhero. 

A creation of komiks icon Mars Ravelo, Darna first appeared in a comic published in the 1940s. She has since gone on to become the most recognizable komiks character in Philippine history, spawning a number of TV series and movie adaptations featuring some of the biggest names in local showbiz. 

Funko is a novelty toy manufacturer based in the US. Its popular Pop! line features characters from various pop culture properties, such as Marvel Comics, DC, Disney, and many more.
