    It's one of the many problems it can have. The nub has to be clipped off so it wont break.

    Just the little nub that locks the handlebar in place.

    You can find more information on this and the other problems with this figure in his Feedback thread.

    ^ What GC said. I cut the nubs (that doesn't sound right) off my out of package WG, and also shaved down the axe handle because he was already showing stress marks on his thumbs. No matter how careful I can be with him, those two things needed to be done. Fantastic figure, KO quality plastic. Poor thing.

    Yeah, I had to cut the nubs too. That's the first permanent mod I've ever done to a figure in my collection beyond sanding.

    1) Put the thread subject properly in the title line (it's bad netiquette not too do that)
    2) Don't use the automorph - move the bars before moving the leg.
