Created by Hicalorie and produced by adFunture, Lefty stands 6" tall. There are three colorways available, each is an edition of 300. The standard, green edition glows in the dark. Lefty debuted at the DIY Calamari show at the Bodhi Gallery in London on November 15, 2007.
The announcement from the adFunture website, posted 10/14/07 is as follows:
Hot from the underwater toy press, this november we will be releasing Hicalorie's Lefty! These 6" Glow in the Dark octopi are assembling for release at adFunture London. Some of you may remember back to the darker times when lefty's story told of a drugged-out plush octopus that gave birth to a litter of 100 baby octopi keychains, a year has passed now since the shabby bitesize 'Leftettes' were all given loving homes in exchange for charitable donations and now Lefty is back and out on the streets again. Today the irresponsible saltwater tentacle-junkie has left old habits behind, cleaning up its act, and looks, to make another appearance as a shiny new vinyl toy.
