This guy is called a ring hand figure. More correctly, he is a slot hand figure a subset of ring hand figures that have a slot rather than a full ring.
These guys are more typical of ring hand figures, the white guy has a true ring hand. The others have a mixture of hand types but all three figures are ring hands.
Ring hands hold a variety of implements, like this knife.
I will see your knife, and raise you a rifle. An unarmed man can become an armed man.
I will see your rifle and raise you a submachine gun. The variety of weapons and tools these guys can use means that one figure can stand in for many poses of conventional figures.
