I'm looking to attach a weapon to a minifig's wrist ala an Assassin's Creed hidden dagger (https://www.brickwarriors.com/hidden-blade/) or a wrist-mounted crossbow. What are my options to do this?

Minifig hands, officially, are not to be removed. Lego doesn't make many accessories that fit the arms of the minifigs. The arm is slightly larger than the standard bar piece and so normal claw-shaped attachments don't fit. The minifig handcuff piece, which does fit over the wrist, is larger than the standard claw pieces.

You'll need to look to third-party solutions like the brickwarriors piece you linked in your question, or make your own pieces.

  • "Minifig hands, officially, are not to be removed." I had no idea. Thank you.

    That's speaking according to my personal conclusions drawn from the fact that Lego has never, to my knowledge, ever used a minifig hand separately from a fig, or shown a figure with its hand off, or sold hands separately, etc. I'm 99% certain that no official Lego product allows for hand removal. Nothing stops you from doing it yourself though, except the knowledge that doing so wears out the arms and can cause them to split. Jul 10, 2017 at 20:23

    That's probably part of why so many of the arms from my childhood are split.
