I've recently got those three wonderful prehistoric predators. But their brand is totally unknown to me; haven't found it neither on toyanimalwiki so far.
The logo is a big HIL with star on the "I", and it is named something like Hinstar, Hirstar or, with some fantasy, but considering the L in their Logo, Hillstar with the LLs forming sort of square.
The date is 1998 made in China (but aren't they all)

The material is heavy hard but elastic rubber, rather big size, see the Schleich big panda in comparism.

isn't it weird how often we come along animals and brands we never heard of, despite the long time and excessivity of collecting?
(and it always makes me wonder how the person I bought it from might have got it - and where)

They're really interesting. I like the Andrewsarchus (it is one, right?) :)

I have been thinking a lot about this too...
There are so many hardcore collectors here so when a figure that like no one has seen before pops up, I'm like "But.. how?... someone HAS to know!"

They don't appear to have a website, or may be defunct...

Thank you for the info and link - unfortunately they don't seem to produce animals anymore, only action figurines (but thinking about it, maybe those predators have been from action sets, too, like the chap mei animals)
I will keep my eyes open for more of those cuties.

yes, I believe it is an andrewsarchus, but they have no name on their bellies. Pity, I like it when they are "labelled"

Thanks for the interesting info on these. I've added Hinstar to the Wiki, though we don't have much to say yet.

I found another of this perhistoric series, even more cartoon like than the predators - a wooly rhino:

I think that China will be very important in the next years to our collections

with new brands and every day best animals.

they are so cool and interesting. there are quality made China figures that are so obscure that they make collecting and hunting much more fascinating and interesting.
