Minecraft Snapshot 12w08a: New Mobs Added

Notch has just released a new snapshot that adds a "defense mob to villages." These "defense mobs" are known as Irons Golems. They seem to be a response to many people complaining about the zombie village attacks committing genocide without someone to stop them. These Golems attack all hostile mobs (including the player) aside from Creepers, Magma Cubes, Slimes, and Ghasts. When killed Golems drop iron ingots and roses.

 Iron Golems can be created, similarly to Snow Golems, the only other utility mob in Minecraft, with 4 blocks of iron and 1 pumpkin. Needless to say I'm excited to start protecting my house and NPCs with Golems.
