Basically there'd be a small percentage that a Jack-in-the-Box would spawn in place of a Dungeon's chest.
These blocks would resemble an antique box with a crank on the side. You right click to turn the crank, producing a different note each time, which all contribute to a melody. Similar to the Note Block, the block underneath affects the sound output.
At the end of the melody, the box flips open and a mob head pops out on a spring. The player then right-clicks to close, or sneaks and right-clicks to grab the mob head.
Right-clicking on an empty Jack-in-the-Box with a mob head would place the head inside. This could likewise work with helmets as a novel alternative to armor stands.
They would include Creeper heads, Zombie heads, Skeleton heads, but not Wither Skeleton skulls (unless you place one inside yourself).
Like a Shulker Box, you can pick up the Jack-in-the-Box without losing the displayed item (at least if it's closed).
If there's any worries this would make mob heads too common, the rarity of these boxes can always be adjusted.
