    maybe it could instead be a separate item from the armor stand, like a statue item that acts like an armor stand but is harder to get and is able to to look like any skin that you currently own from the marketplace, that way there's a new reason to buy skins instead of buying a skin pack and only using one skin from it. its default form could look like a stone statue of steve.

    Maybe you somehow type in a persons gamertag and the armour stand then becomes that player

    No way, I love this idea but I play on console and in survival I already use armor stands to look like npc guards, this would be brilliant to add to my medieval world have traders actually in stalls you would be better off making a wand feature like in the mcedit mod for java edition to open up the skin menu but I would buy skin packs if I would be using more then one as of now I only use the free ones

    So you know how people sneak to change the pose of the armour stand so I just thought of a way to do it like do that and it will open up a menu where you can still change the pose but you can change the skins too

    Yes!  I love this idea. I don't think we'll ever be given a "Player Mob" in the near future. That being said, doing this with armor stands would be downright AMAZING. The only thing that could top this is if we have the ability to keep the armor stand with a permanent player skin and if we're able to change to skin model (Steve or Alex)

    It's probably more likely for it to only work with commands, but I do think thats plenty for a map or roleplay hub to use them in that way without adding a menu or anything, so I don't see a reason not to add this.

    It could use an NBT tag like skulls: PlayerModel

    totally agree. It would most likely be a command like /summon minecraft:armor_stand skin <playername>

    Yeah, but how?

    This is a great idea and could easily just be set with /summon armor_stand{PlayerSkin:"<playername>"}

    I've wanted something like this since they were added. Even still now as 1.15.2 is being worked on. Could use just a player name like skulls or that custom code thing where it can be anything you want, not needing to be from a player skin.

    I might be mistaken, but I heard somewhere you can already do this with nbt tags? Not sure though, and if anyone knows how I'd love to know...
