The hilt of sword got through the hand of small armor stands.

How to reproduce

  1. Use the following command to summon a normal armor stand
    /summon ArmorStand ~ ~-0.5 ~ {Pose:{RightArm:[-15f,135f,-90f]},HandItems:[{id:"stone",Count:1b},{}],ShowArms:1b,NoGravity:1b}

    The stone block should be displayed horizontally

  2. Use the following command to spawn a small armor stand with the same pose
    /summon ArmorStand ~ ~0.5 ~ {Pose:{RightArm:[-15f,135f,-90f]},HandItems:[{id:"stone",Count:1b},{}],ShowArms:1b,NoGravity:1b,Small:1b}

    The stone block is not displayed horizontally, however if you decrease the second RightArm value by 20, it gets displayed horizontally as well:

    /summon ArmorStand ~ ~0.5 ~ {Pose:{RightArm:[-15f,115f,-90f]},HandItems:[{id:"stone",Count:1b},{}],ShowArms:1b,NoGravity:1b,Small:1b}

/summon ArmorStand ~ ~ ~

In fact its not just swords.

It effects every other item as well.

Comment by [Mod] Odysseius [ 22/Dec/14 ]

Is this still a concern in the current Minecraft version? If so, please update the affected versions in order to best aid Mojang ensuring bugs are still valid in the latest releases/pre-releases. If this has been done, we can reopen the issue.

Keep in mind that the "Resolved"-Status on this ticket just means "Answered", and that we are waiting for further information on whether this issue still exists or not. We will reopen it as soon as the requested information has been delivered.

Confirmed for 15w45a.

I'm sure there's a good reason in the workflow here to keep this as 'Resolved' and 'Awaiting Response', as opposed to just keeping the ticket open, but I find I can't vote for it while it's 'Resolved'. oh nevermind
