ReSaurus was a United States toy company based in Columbus, Ohio. It created multiple lines of officially licensed merchandise for properties including videogames Crash Bandicoot, Sonic the Hedgehog, Duke Nukem and Quake, and films Flipper, Babe, The Lost World and Godzilla.[1]

Brothers Jay and Chris Borman, and then-freelancer Kenneth Lilly, worked together to create prototypical products for ReSaurus to pitch to the owners of Oddworld (at the time, [Oddworld Inhabitants] and [GT Interactive]). These products included a latex mask of Molluck, a Paramite hand puppet, and figurines of Abe, although according to Lilly, a licensed released would have also included products based on Elum and Sligs.[2]

ReSaurus never acquired a license for Oddworld,[2] although it was reported by Collecting Channel.com that they had.[3]
