As expected, the most stupendous cosplay and collectibles part of the popular DC, Marvel, and Star Wars franchises filled the corners of SMX Convention Center last week for ToyCon 2019. On a local scale, the most anticipated events took place at the #RaveloKomiksUniverse booth. The space was obviously derived after Filipino comics legend Mars Ravelo, featuring beloved superheroes Captain Barbell and Lastikman as well as our female icon of power Darna.

#RaveloKomiksUniverse displayed life-size superhero figures, apart from the cool merchandise and novelties up for grabs. The booth also erected a photo wall and a Lastikman Card Game, making it a must-try for guests. The booth became the perfect photo spot for the Ravelo Komiks Universe cosplayers in Captain Barbell, Lastikman, and Darna costumes to the delight of local comic fans!
The #RaveloKomiksUniverse booth also saw the launch of the Darna x Funko Pop collection—making the character the first Pinoy comics superheroine Darna the first to have its own Funko collectible toy. The announcement, of course, coincides with the yearlong 70th anniversary celebration campaign of the iconic Darna.
