The Complete Set Challenge
A tradition in the Fun Tyme community has developed as collectors hunt for the complete collection of #9206 - Glow and #9207 - Fluorescent ghost masks from the original four designs ('Silly', 'Weeping', 'Goofy', and 'Happy'). With more collectors aiming for this impressive achievement, we want to establish the parameters for what grants you a rank and pinned post in our group.
All masks must be Gen 1.
All masks must have cotton shrouds.
All fluorescents must have no-eyeliner.
All masks must be authentic and original (no re-shrouded or replica white shrouds).
Exceptions may be made for 'Splotch' copies though it isn't particularly encouraged for this challenge. The ideal is to have a consistent and unified collection. There will always be varying qualities (paint stencils, cotton fabrics, vinyl thickness, etc.) but we feel the terms outlined leave room to make the challenge realistic and tenable. The rules have been determined and agreed upon by the original achievers.
We feel strongly that collectors with polyester shrouded masks or eyeliner fluorescents should not feel at all invalidated by these conditions- this is only a specific challenge tradition and these are all excellent vintage masks! We encourage collectors to enjoy all eras and styles, but our ranked challenge is best restricted to the specific terms.

#2 - Wade Elibon - June 19, 2021 Here is my complete collection of glow-in-the-dark & fluorescent cotton shrouded original 4 ghost designs ('Weeping', 'Happy', 'Goofy', and 'Silly')! I am the second collector to fulfill this set. The first was Douglas Little, who's YouTube channel helped inspire me when I first got back into collecting Fun World masks. I grew up loving these masks as a kid in the 90s, but I never could have imagined getting into them as an adult or finding a community who shares an interest in them. Thank you everyone who's supported this journey! (All tags are replicas)

This group was quite the grind but I’m insanely stoked to have this set completed alongside Wade and Douglas and Jo (pretty much)! Every single Fantastic Faces ghost from the early 90s 9206/9207 line for the exception of the white shroud Melty & Grinning Ghost(only one real copy of each known to be surfaced). Oddly enough this is personally one of my proudest accomplishments, I never thought looking for one gen 1 mask would end up like this.
#4 - Jo Nobile - February 27, 2022 ...oOoOooooo! The entire early Fantastic Faces #9206 and #9207 collection! I'm proud to say I am the *fourth *person to have assembled this collection in it's entirety. All early cotton shroud masks, all first generation, and all in excellent condition. Thanks to all who have helped me assemble this incredible set. I hope this inspires others to collect these incredible masks!
#5 - John Louis - March 11, 2022 I am now the fifth person to complete the entire early Fantastic Faces #9206 and #9207 assortments of ghosts! Never thought I can accomplish such a goal, and to do so has got me extremely happy! Big thanks to everyone who has helped me out in accomplishing such a feat! Really couldn’t have done it without you guys.
#6 - Caleb Durham - November 25, 2022 I’m very happy to post today that I am now officially the 6th person to ever complete the entire set of 1st Generation Fantastic Faces ghosts! HUGE thank you to Chris Katros, William Edward, Tyler Craig, Wade Elibon, and everyone else who helped me along this journey! This is one of the greatest achievements in my collecting life.
#7 - Jack Ashton - December 15, 2022 Well, the moment's arrived -- to share my complete set of first-generation, no-eyeliner, cotton-shroud #9206 & #9207 ghost masks! I'm honored to be the 7th collector to have accomplished this feat, and feel incredibly lucky to maintain one of only a handful of complete collections out there right now. Starting back in January, I never could have imagined just how much these ghosts would end up haunting me throughout the year! Many thanks to the incredible people I've met along the way: Without you, this would have been impossible. I came to this hobby primarily from an aesthetic interest in the ghost mask designs, but since then I've learned so much about so many subjects, all springing from a common interest in these fantastic objects. Good luck to the next collector. (Tag is a replica)
