PostSubject: Made in China dinosaurs with similarities to major brands   Tue May 13, 2014 2:42 pm

I wasn't sure where I should have posted this.  If it's in the wrong category, feel free to move it.  I came across these dinosaurs on eBay, all have similarities to Papo, Safari Ltd. and Shleich:

THAT is copying of 3rd degree  affraid 
Thankyou for the link, - it is very interesting !!!! Suspect 

Amazing, - the price is not even much lower than the originals.... they show batteries naxt to them, - are they battery-driven, or is it only to show the size ?  scratch

You're welcome! I'm thinking the battery is there to show the size of them, it doesn't look like they can be taken apart.

Orcagirl, it is in the correct category and it is very interesting that you, a sea life collector, are so observant to notice copycating on these prehistoric animals. It is scandalous. Dinosaurs are the easiest to copy, you can give the same shape, change drastically the color and it will turn harder to notice.
You cannot do it with a zebra, of course. But colors don't look drastically changed on these figures! Laughing

let's avoid buying all these blatant thievery if possible. their original versions are still in the market and i'd prefer them over these cheap copies (tho the price isnt that much different from the original's price. the nerve of these pirate manufacturers  Evil or Very Mad ).

Thank you, Roger. As a sea life collector, I do try to take notice of the other collections that major companies have. When I came across these I was really shocked  Shocked

They are nice, but I think they money should go to the original creator. BTW You're welcome!

Thank you. No they don't seem that bad, but like I said before I feel the money should go to the original creator. I'm not even sure if the are solid, they look hollow  Suspect

I agree with you 100%!  Mad  Isn't this the reason by PV doesn't make their animal replicas anymore?  scratch scratch
