Did you know this was possible in vanilla minecraft?
If you did, you probably also knew its only possible with comands, and if you didnt, well you do now.
ARMourstands to the rescue!
ARMourstands Mod 1.9.4,1.9 is server side only, and players with or without it on the client will be able to use it when connecting to a server.
Craft up a normal armourstand and place it in the world. Right click it with 2 sticks to add arms. ARMourstands needs a wrench to turn armourstand parts. By default a vanilla lever works, but you can change that in the configs.
Right click a part with a configured wrench item to turn it. Sneak while right clicking to turn it backwards.
Right click into the air while sneaking to switch wrench mode.
Since ARMourstands only poses the vanilla armourstands around, these will persist in their poses if the mod is removed. Someone might find that useful for map making.
