Where Bob Was All Along
No, this isn't ghost Bob. This is a how-I-did-it.
All the time Bob was missing he was actually in his usual place in Whimsy. I stopped his motion and turned him alpha and phantom so it would seem he was gone. Then, when he was finally "rescued," I just set him solid, turned off transparent, and set him to rocking.
If anyone was wondering what sort of Photoshop magic I was working to put Bob in all those no-build places, I simply flew there myself, attached a copy of Bob, and moved around until I got the shots I wanted.
