    Hi everyone. I like RID Windblade but wanted wrist swivels for her. I also liked her look in the Machima series, mainly her shoulder pads. I found a Generations Windblade cheap and decided to do an arm swap. RID has a larger ball on the shoulder but it will go on. I might sand it down a little improve fit and reduce stress on the ball joint. Unfortunately the RID arms don't fit generations as the balls are so small. I have tried layering nail polish but the difference is too much. If I can figure out a filler I will try to put them on. Anyway here are some with Titan Hunter Windblade (Maxima) for comparison. Enjoy! (10/12/16) Pics Fixed. IMG_7611.JPG IMG_7612.JPG IMG_7613 (1).JPG IMG_7615.JPG IMG_7614.JPG IMG_7617.JPG

    As far as the pic orientation is concerned - have you double-checked the orientation on yer computer or fone, to verify the orientation is correct?
    But in regards to the ball-joint issue - you might have success trying to find some beads that are the same size as the Generations mold, before you sand them both down...

    The pics are fine on my computer. I even tried inverting them and re downloading. I even tried sideways. The page makes them upside down.

    I'm sure it's your phone. I bet you used it upside down, possibly via using your case to prop it up and then took the pics? The thing is, phones have ways to detect the screen rotation info in pics and can either manually or automatically adjust to display it. Some PC software can also do this. However, the software doesn't actually rotate the picture, but rather redisplays it.

    I recommend using photoshop or MS paint to rotate the pics and then re-upload them.

    I know it's not fancy and might wear thin over time, but I've found that wrapping the ball of the joint in some paper towel works well enough as filler for display purposes. I did just that for a few head swaps I made on a combiner team I did a little while back. Just my two cents.

    Thanks, For some reason my Windows 10 computer showed them right side up even in paint. Got on my Windows 7 machine and it showed them upside down and I was able to fix them. Don't know why 10 wont show them upside down. Anyway I got them fixed and thanx to calvin0 for posting rightside up before i got it figured out.

    I suspect that the newer OS can read smartphone screen rotation info contained in the picture data, whereas the older OS could not. Thus, Win 10 simply compensated automatically:
