Ozuna makes history by becoming the first Spanish-speaking urban music singer to have his own collectible figure in partnership with the prestigious companies FUNKO and Univision.
The piece will be available for pre-sale starting today on the official FUNKO website, while in physical stores it will be on sale in early 2021.
The figure of Ozuna sets a precedent for Univision as it is the first time that the Spanish-speaking television network has partnered with a singer for the launch of a collectible item. In addition, it is the first FUNKO product to be made in direct collaboration with the artist, according to Despierta América.
The new FUNKO collectible figure has characteristic details that were selected by the Puerto Rican singer himself, among which his hair and clothing in a completely white hue stand out.
