Sorry, I'd prefer not to. I don't mean this unkindly, but I just can't personally justify promoting the sale of a knockoff.

I'm still skeptical that's a clone of the Vitae Sinraptor. It can only be it if the photos have been reversed. Either way it's a cheaply made Chinese figure of unknown origin that probably doesn't meet quality standards, wouldn't chance it.

I don't think they are Vitae dinosaur figures, they are a simple simulation. I am almost totally sure that these figures do not belong to the Vitae brand.

It's not a straight recast, but I'm pretty confident it uses the Sinraptor as a base. The manufacturer's entire output is bootlegs, mostly Schleich, but no major company seems to be spared.

I just hope it will stand...
The Vitae theropods only stand on perfectly even grounds.
Considering how wonky the legs are on knockoff figures I'm a bit worried.

So apparently AAA did XL dinosaur models? Got this in a bundle recently, and it's HUGE! Has a hefty weight to it as well, so definitely not hollow either. Anyone know if AAA made a series of these? Did it have a series name?

If it is from AAA which I Think it is, it should have a circle with Three A's in it.

@EmmaLVV : Yes, Emma, you are absolutely right, this super giant Dimetrodon is from AAA, I own a few of them, in summer, they live in my great garden in the
shadow under bushes, in winter, there are in my house!
From this huge serie of AAA are in existence huge Dromaeosaurs, Tyrannosaur in light grey and dark green, Stegosaurs in dark green and military green with blue dots,
huge Brachiosaurs in dark green and dark yellow with brown stripes/dots, Triceratops in dark green and steel grey with bordeaux-red stripes!

Yes, there are all very heavy in full rubber, that gives them the weight, I think, nearly around 1 kg of weight!
The stegosaur and triceratops is very heavy, too, brachiosaur and dromaeosaurs have a little less weight than dimetrodon!

All figures are existing as smaller variants, too, for example this giant Dimetrodon in mini version, good to take as a Dimetrodon baby!

And yes, @Libraraptor, the 3 AAA are in a circle! The brand print is under the belly there, where the tail begins!

If you would like to sell him, write me PM, please, thanks a lot!

The height from floor til highest point of sail 23 cm ! Unfortunately I cannot say anything to his exact weight, but possibly @EmmaLVV ?

Wow, interesting. I was only aware of the giant-sized dromaeosaur, didn't realize there was a Dimetrodon in this format.

I recently obtained a haul of vintage figures from E-bay and put a photo of them on the Recent Acquisitions thread. Several members kindly helped to identify many of them (thanks 👍) but there were a few that remained unknown. I promised to take some more snaps of them and put them here. They may just be unknown cheaposaurs and not possible to ID, but you never know someone might spot something.

First up are some of the sauropods and stegosaurs:





This picture shows them upside down, to show their hollow tummies. This includes the rather Inpro like Brachiosaurus, second from left:



The two Diplodocus and larger Stegosaurus (without thagomizer) seem to be the same brand.

Next the other figures, including "Mr Burns":



@PlesiosaurusNessy  thought the bright green Brontosaurus might be a Sinclair. It certainly looks like one though is a hollow cheap kind of plastic, so suspect it's a knock off.

More snaps soon, quick break!

Part 2 of the Unknown Cheaposaur Haul...

The Scorpion King, Mr Burns (thanks to @BlueKrono ) sparked a few comments and is a very nicely done figure. It's set into a base and reminds me of the forthcoming figures from the Evolution Kickstarter game:





The Scorpion has its name and number 43 underneath (don't mention the meaning of life):



The bright yellow beastie pictured besides it is very odd. It could be a turtle, placodont or an attempt at an Ankylosaurus and is made from an almost transparent plastic reminiscent of the old Micronauts toys. It doesn't photograph well at all, so special award for anyone identifying that one 🤔

Any ideas or suggestions on the figures greatly appreciated.

Nice to get a clearer view of that scorpion. It's a pretty nice figure, although I don't recognize it.

I think the green Brontosaurus might be Tootsie Toy. @DC to the rescue once again: http://www.dinosaurcollectorsitea.com/TootsieToy.htm

Thanks @Halichoeres the bronto is very similar and hollow, but the figure in the DC picture is a bit more detailed than my figure and it also has a longer tail. Mine ends in a short stump!

I guess we could put it down as a Tootsie knock-off?

Right you are. And it doesn't look like Ajax, which is the only other line in this style that I'm familiar with. Could be a knock-off as you say.

@Crackington : Yes, perhaps you are right, that the bright green Brontosaurus is a Sinclair Oil knock-off figure, I like him very much!

The two grey-green Stegosaurs are Marx knock-off´s, I own those, too, in diffferent colours!

Very interesting, that the little brown Diplodocus´ are hollow inside and the Inpro knock-off Brachiosaur, too.
The two Diplodocus I own as full plastic figures in different sizes, my little ones are light blue!

@Halichoeres : Your link for the Tootsie-Toys Brontosaurus is great, @Libraraptor owns this wonderful old figure in purple/lilac,
to admire in "Libraraptor´s collection", page 25, posting #490 of 27 March 2018, a little bit scrolling in the posting!

I really like these old monochrome figures very much, as @Libraraptor is doing that,too!

The scorpion looks cool....unfortunately I have no idea for the transparent yellow Ankylosaurus?
And, I think, the crocodile like animal is a very old style cheapasaur crocodile from the 70ties and not a dinosaur...possibly?

Further happy dino collecting!

Is the scorpion from one of the Yowies reboots? The style looks similar.
