After browsing eBay USA I came across some US Yowies which were coming from China, I had a look at them because I love Yowie figures. I noticed that these figures were incredibly poorly painted and that is why I thought they were knock offs. https://www.ebay.com/itm/5-pcs-Yowie-Mini-Wild-Animal-Figure-Toy-Educational-Animal-PVC-Model/283636066260?hash=item420a06e7d4:g:zO0AAOSwt5dbYn2S

those Yowies look good to me. Maybe it is poor photography. A couple have scratches; maybe they were played with before.

Some of them are "different", the horned guan's horn is black there and should be red, the hippo is a solid purpley red when it should have graded shading, and gray wolf seems lighter gray. So maybe knockoffs? Maybe customs? Maybe originals that have unique paintings? (Some figures I've come across have paint job variation)

As Paige says, the Guan does not have the red horn, but otherwise they seem quite normal to me scratch

Yeah, they might just have been played with a lot and the paint came off

Not erverything from China is a knock-off Laughing
They seem okay for me and I think they were used or played before, too. But the description says: brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item (including handmade items) what seems not to be the case.
