Thanks everyone. I figured there was a chance it was a knockoff of something, considering the rest of the figures from that seller. I searched around for other Eudimorphodons, but as y'all know, there aren't many figures of that animal. I didn't think to compare it to existing Dimorphodon figures. Oh well. I knew it was a risk, but a low-cost one. When it arrives, it'll make a fun addition to my sons' dino-toys.

I'd be careful with that, knockoffs and other illegal bootlegs are often not safety tested.

Here's something you don't see every day... A Carnegie Museum snow globe featuring a Diplodocus model clearly based on the 2008 Carnegie Collection version.
