on the 12-13 one, everyone's head moves, except the guy right at the bottom at the far left, who only loses the top of his head

Well, i found the guy who dissapears and appears. I followed the movements and they people move upwards gradually, till the only bit left when they move is the feet. Then. In 13-mode, the guy in the middle right at the top is the one that doesnt appear at all in 12-mode. Still cant see why. maybe part of someone is hidden at that point? :?

I saw this solution to the illusion on another site. I'm putting it in invisible writing (click three times to read) for those of you that still want to 'ponder' it for yourselves. :lol:

The solution is simple.
During the switch all 12 of the figures lose a part of their body, which gets summed up into the 13th person. The way this is done is that each of them because a tad bit shorter.

Look at the guy all the way in the bottom left.
During the switch his hair
gets taken away, but he gets nothing for it. That hair then becomes the hair and forehead of the guy on the right, who had lost an entire upper section of his head. Through this process each figure loses a bigger amount than he gains. If you were to follow the “bodypart-chain” the last guy doesn’t get anything for giving away a section of his shoes.

Whoever drew this was some kind of genius.
