Has anyone seen the Weight Watchers Hungry monster?

They're crazily NOT selling the little thing right now and I want one desperately. It seems to me that he might be a great project to knit out of some of that freaky eye-lash stuff (if I can find a bright orange).

The question is, does anyone have a pattern that might work? I don't really have the time and energy to come up with one myself for the next month or so.

Grace and peace,

Update! They announced at

Update! They announced at this week's meeting that he was coming! We'll see!

Thanks for all the ideas. I think, as Joe suggested, maybe I wouldn't end up liking the end product as much if it were knitted. Sewing is probably the way to go if I can't get my hands on a "real" one when they come out.

No one seems to understand

No one seems to understand why Weight Watchers is not selling a stuffed animal version of Hungry. Personally I think he looks like the orange monster from the Bugs Bunny cartoons.

yup - I would think some

yup - I would think some fake fur and a very beanbaggy pattern.

Personally, I don't think

Personally, I don't think you'd get the right fur texture from a knitted eyelash type yarn...even if you could find orange.

I would think it would be a LOT easier to sew up something like this (even for someone like me who doesn't do much sewing).

Here's a source for the thing's "pelt":
