Any info about this figure ?
It doesn't seem to be a simple knock-off..

Mystery to me. Seems to be one of those random unbranded figures that turn up on Ali Express from time to time, like the Dracorex recently.

I have one of these Kronosaurs on the way to me at the moment, though not the striped one, a more plain coloured version. Nice sculpt. Always ready to add another marine reptile to the collection.

I don't know, to me that looks like they cast CollectA's Kronosaurus, added a little extraneous texture, repositioned the fins, and gave it stripes.
In the kingdom of the blind, better take public transit. Well, in the kingdom of the sighted, too, really--almost everyone is a terrible driver.

I was thinking the same but CollectA' head bends on the left while this one' head is on the right side.
Even proportions seem to be different.

It’s as much a complete resculpt as anything. You can see in the curvature of the jaw and the points where the flippers meet the body.
Got Brachauchenius?

Yeah, fair enough. More of a heavily-inspired-by-CollectA figure than a direct recast.

Does anybody recognize this Iguanodon figure? I came across it as part of a lot listing on ebay UK. I really like the old-style sculpt of this figure. The link to the actual listing is as follows: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Dinosaur-Toys-Books-Glove-Puppet-Bundle-30-Dinosaurs/293774267922?hash=item44664f9612:g:nREAAOSwmC9fgFtI

That is most probably the painted Invicta Iguanodon. 8)

I've had this retro... deinonychus (?) for longer than I could remember and know nothing of it. It has MADE IN CHINA printed quite small where his/her cloaca should be but other than that there isn't anything to distinguish this guy/gal.

It reminds me of the AAA dromaeosaurus that I have had my collection for more than thirty-five years, the animal is very similar to that, vinyl dromaeosaurus. I pass the link, Can it be a dromaeosaurus AAA model in a different version? Can the brand be AAA?

Mine seems to be a few bricks smaller than the one in that photo, would it be possible even AAA got some bootlegs made?

It's a bootleg of the AAA Deinonychus (the small one):

In case you run across this alleged Carchorodontosaurus online, it's a thinly-disguised bootleg of the Vitae Sinraptor. H/t @Loon for the identification.
