A repaint is a toy where the paint operations of a figure are different in a new one while the plastic of the toy itself is the same. True repaints are rare because most figures that undergo extensive color changes involve a change in the base plastic colors as well.
Repaint is often used as a synonym for a redeco by fans, but it differs in that redecos also require a chan.ge in the plastic's color itself.
