very different.My figure isnt completly faded,the colour is alot lighter than how it originally is.

I see. Obviously repainting is a big project, so you'd have to decide whether or not you think it's worth it for that particular figure. And if would probably be a good idea to do a different painting project to get a feel for it before attempting the actual figure. But if you did want to give repainting it a try, I'd suggest looking up garage kit tutorials! There's a lot of information out there on how to paint figures and get the nice professional looking finish. To get the matte finish the figure currently has, you would want to use a matte sealer after painting. Muntoe's Garage Kit Compendium is probably the best place to start, obviously you would want to skip ahead to the painting/shading/sealing sections. Good luck if you decide to give it a try!

Short of repainting the whole thing, probably not. I don't have any faded figures but the only way I've thought of other than repainting is to apply a tinted matte varnish--it might give the impression of darker colors, and it could just be sprayed/brushed all over the figure. The only part that would need to be masked would be the skin and face, so overall much easier than repainting. Of course that would only work on somewhat minor fading too. But really I don't know all that much about varnishes so I'm sure someone else would know better if that's even a viable idea. It's definitely veering firmly into the field of experimentation, so I wouldn't attempt it unless you're okay with possibly making the problem worse.

But that aside, if you plan to get rid of the figure because of the fading, I'd recommend you try selling it at a really discounted rate! I see people all the time who just throw figures in the trash because of damage, but there are tons of people out there who are willing to buy them in order to repair them or use them for painting practice or other things. It's a good way to give them a second life!

No. However, in the future, you can prevent photodegradation by keeping your figures away from direct sunlight (and even indirect sunlight).
