Two months after rumors started swirling that toy company Funko was going to release a Pop! figurine of Selena, one of them was made available for pre-order on Amazon Thursday morning–and according to Entertainment Weekly–sold out in 40 minutes.

The figurine features Selena, the late Queen of Tejano, dressed in the well-known burgundy outfit she wore when she performed her last concert at the Houston Astrodome in 1995, less than a month before her death. The toy even includes the Band-aid she wore on her finger that night. Reports are that the Pop! figure is now “in and out of stock.”

Two more Selena figurines are “coming soon,” according to a press release from Funko–a Selena in burgundy outfit “Diamond Collection,” which will be sold exclusively at Hot Topic, and one featuring Selena in the white dress she wore to the 1994 Grammys.

“We are honored to celebrate the life and legacy of Selena through our Pop! products,” Funko said in a statement. “This historic line pays homage to one of the greatest female Latin artists of all-time and is a tangible way for her millions of global fans to display their affinity for Selena.”

Selena’s family is also excited to partner with Funko on what they call a celebration of “Selena’s ongoing legacy.”

“These Funko Pop! products honor some of the most influential musicians and I am humbled to have Selena be part of this historic line showcasing her place in pop culture,” Suzette Quintanilla, sister of Selena, said in a statement.

Looks like we know what Selena fans across the world are going to want as a stocking stuffer this Christmas. For all we know, this might end up being the Latino version of the Tickle Me Elmo craze.
