I hate to say it, but I suppose it has no comapany at all. Itīs probably just a random chinasaur. Regarding the snout Iīd say itīs a Baryonyx.

One of the few known restorations of "crocosaurus-rex"...
My living room smells like old plastic dinosaur toys... Better than air freshener!

Reminds me a lot of a Velociraptor I used to see by Imperial  I believe...could be a knockoff of him.

I have one of those. I got it in a box set with Stegosaurus and Styracosaurus. It's meant to be a Velociraptor, though it's not that much like one.

There you go. ;D

I actually love Imperial Dinos..in the late 80's they were the ones I took outside and did everything with..they held up to a lot of abuse..just not a lawn mower.. :/

My 1/1 Dinos are a little hard to fit under a mower .. ;D  And I don't live with my Dad anymore..haven't since my mom passed in 98'.  Granted he worked a terrible job and didn't even want to fool with yard work when he was off..so given all that my Dino toys in the yard didn't stand much chance. :/

Here is a bunch of unknown figures.
Is there anything valuable here?

One is the inpro dimetrodon, how much is that worth?

What kind of Dromeosaur is the raptor from When Dinosaurs Roamed America. My guess would be Utahraptor but i'm not sure. (I know this thread is for figures but i didn't want to start a new thread for this)

Ok guys and gals... This was on eBay... Years ago... I was outbid on it and I was heartbroken... I have never seen another one since and would really like to get one.. If I remember correctly it was listed as Archeopteryx Desktop Model.... 

Any info on it would be greatly appreciated:)

I think there's an Inpro Dimetrodon in there, among the top four figures on the left. Not sure what that's worth, two to three pounds in the UK?
