Armor Stand is an item in Minecraft added in 1.8 (snapshot 14w32a). Its purpose is to hold and display wearable items such as Armor, Pumpkins, and Heads. It can be interacted it with directly by right-clicking. Using NBT tags, you can make it smaller and add hands. Because it is an entity, it can be pushed by Pistons, picked up by a Minecart, and will fall if the block below it is broken. Like Signs or Banners, you are able to rotate them in 8 directions.
- Until 1.8 you could only get Armor Stands using mods (for ex. Bibliocraft).
- You can only place Armor Stands in the middle of a block, but you can move it around a bit using pistons and water.
- Armor Stands are not craftable in Minecraft: Pocket Edition or Windows 10 Edition.
