With an upcoming movie featuring teen star Liza Soberano, there's no shortage of enthusiasm among mainstream audiences for what should be Darna's triumphant return to the big screen.

And while one may have to wait for next year at the earliest for the superhero flick to drop, for those wanting a little Darna in their lives right now, this looks to be the 1/4th scale figure to have.

Halimaw Sculptures have been showcasing their gorgeous premium Darna statue, which features the iconic superheroine striking a pose while a giant, badly beat up snake lies in a rubble underneath. 

It was first unveiled at a toy convention back in June, and is part of one of the deals ABS-CBN Corporation entered in to bring popular characters, created by komiks legend Mars Ravelo, to life. 

There are also statues of Captain Barbell, Lastikman, and Darna's rival, Valentina, with each costing at least P30,000.

The statues were displayed during a contract signing ABS-CBN had with several partners, which have agreed to design more toys, games, clothing, and other collectibles based on the Mars Ravelo creations.
