Fanatics released its exclusive Funko POP! figurine of Alex Ovechkin at 10 AM, Tuesday.
The Ovi POP! features Ovechkin’s iconic gap-toothed smile and yellow laces. It also rocks a Capitals third jersey and custom red and navy gloves. The figurine is available for $14.95 exclusively on Fanatics’ website.
A Fanatics spokesman tells RMNB that they expect the figurine to be very popular and sell quickly.
The figurine was first announced in early August by Funko announcing their new NHL release for the upcoming season.
In October, RMNB exclusively reported that Fanatics expected their shipment in mid-December.
Fanatics also expects to sell a limited supply of these exclusive Ovi figurines signed by Ovechkin after they meet up with him for another signing. Ovechkin is signed to an exclusive merchandise deal with the company.
Ovi’s first figurines debuted in 2016 and sported Ovechkin in two different jerseys, home and away (a Canadian exclusive), but had more of a traditional Funko design without any of Ovi’s key details.
1 PM update: The new Ovi Funko POP! figurine is the most purchased item on Fanatics today.
Here's more evidence of Alex Ovechkin's vast popularity. A Fanatics spokesman tells RMNB that the new Ovi Funko POP! is the best selling product on their site so far today. https://t.co/XcRmCHxly4
