The FangCun Ghost Cube is a very challenging 3x3 shape mod. While there's only one color, the many different-sized pieces make the ghost cube a unique challenge.
The FangCun Ghost Cube is available in black, blue, yellow, pink, and white and it comes with either a Silver, Gold, or White set of ghost cube stickers. The stickers are not necessary for solving the puzzle, but they can be applied to the puzzle if desired.

Our Promise to You
All of our products are guaranteed to be free of defects, or we will replace and reship at no cost to you. Please contact us within 4 weeks (28 days) past the delivery date to report any issues with items you have purchased.
Please note that some new cubes when being used for the first few times may experience what is termed a "pop". This is when one or more parts of a puzzle pop out without any damage actually being done to any of the pieces. This also occurs from time to time during normal usage. Pops are typically not considered a defect if the parts which come off can be reassembled by hand.
The corners on 2x2 puzzles should not be twisted as doing so may snap the piece. Damage caused by corner twisting is not considered to be a defect.

Moving is great but stickers were placed badly so I had to trim some of the stickers because when I moved the peices they would hit the stickers.
This is a very fun and interesting shape mod, it feels almost like a cross between mirror cube and mastermorphix. Mine turns great out of the box and I was really surprised with how well it corner cuts, which I find to be a huge help on puzzles like this that can be tricky to keep the layers aligned as you're solving.
A few other people have mentioned this, but due to the shape of the pieces a few of the stickers start peeling as soon as you scramble the puzzle because they're slightly offset and catch on the other pieces. You technically don't need stickers at all though, and if they get worse I'll just end up peeling them and enjoy my matte black cube as is.
I only own this ghost cube; I don't own the Meffert's 3x3 ghost cube, or any other nxn ghost cubes. I bought the black cube with silver stickers.
This is fun to solve, even if you need to refer to pictures of the faces of the solved cube. Mine turns well, even without lube, after about 5 minutes. I imagine popping might be an issue for others, as the "cubies" are looser than normal, but I'm not speed solving this cube. For me, the only problem is that one of the pentagonal stickers on one of the "centers" started peeling because it was applied off-center and started catching as I rotated layers of the cube.
Hint: There can be a parity issue if you're solving this by the beginner's method, as two of the trapezoidal pieces look very similar. If you get a pre-stickered cube, you'll notice that the "grain" on the stickers on each solved face should be aligned. If you want an extra challenge in solving this cube, take off the stickers.
One sticker got bent and yanked because it was not placed perfectly. I had to remove it, uncurl it, and place it back. It’s not sticking so well now. Maybe I’ll remove all stickers if it remains a problem. I understand this is like a jumbled 3x3 but I’m finding it tough finding which and where pieces belong. A 3x3 mirror block cube is so much easier. I might need to look at photos to understand the piece placements.
I have only solved this cube once. It took me about five hours, despite most shape mods only taking me about five minutes, primarily because I kept losing track of where I was in algorithms because the cube constantly locks up and finding the cause of the lockup is near impossible to do quickly. Overall a good cube if it wasn't for the unbelievably bad turning (I've compared the turning to a 1920's car with the steering wheel welded in place when describing it to friends if that gives some idea). Also the stickers somehow started peeling off just from the lockups.
Thanks for your review! FangCun puzzles tend to turn badly our of the box because they are not well-lubed from the factory, but a drop of light lube like Silk or DNM-37 usually makes them much better. You can also loosen the screws a bit if the lube doesn't do enough.
I've had a Ghost Cube in past that I lost so I had to replace and all in all this metallic sticker version a great puzzle to solve, however I had to re-glue and re-cut stickers that were coming off during scrambles and solves.
Honestly, it’s a super fun puzzle to solve, really makes you think no matter how familiar you are with a 3x3, but it’s still just a 3x3. The biggest issue in my opinion is POPPING, it pops A LOT, and a pop here and there isn’t bad, but if you’re in a middle of an algorithm and it pops you’ll completely lose where you are and odds are you probably placed the popped piece back in incorrectly, that happened to me and had to take it all apart and back together into a cube which was also absolute hell lol. so I would recommend it just because how fun it is to solve but the popping really discourages me from trying to solve it again, looks freaking awesome when solved though.
Easily my favorite cube, even thought it's just a 3x3x3 shape mod. A ghost cube is always a challenge to solve, even when you're familiar with solving a 3x3x3, and even when you've gotten used to the ghost cube. I broke my original one, which was a bummer, because I spent hours painting it to look like metal with worn metallic blue paint chipping away. I just got a new one and re-stickered it with chrome/blue oil-slick vinyl. It can look blue, gold, purple, teal, and magenta. It looks amazing. Definitely cooler than my old one, and way cooler than the plain brushed silver it came with.
This was difficult, Not bad ootb, but as soon as I scrambled it, I regretted it, It took me 5 hours. But I learned that the turning quality was good, but I Found it difficult. Would reccomend, but no one knows what this is/
It came a little greasy ootb but just wipe the insides a little and it’s good to go. It turns very smoothly and is overall a great puzzle. I also got the blue with silver stickers so it looks amazing on my shelves.
It took me hours to figure this out—if you want to give yourself a challenge try solving this without a tutorial. My only complaints are a rare lockup and some of the stickers are not placed well, but these aren’t major problems, and you’re saving 20 bucks over the mefferts! I would say this cube is essential for every cube enthusiast, so what are you waiting for!
