      Description

      In previous versions, the piston_extension block has been used in Enderman anti-griefing command block designs.

      Running a command such as;

      entitydata @e[type=enderman] {carried:"minecraft:piston_extension"}
      

      would prevent an Enderman being able to pick up or move other blocks. The "Piston Extension" block was ideal because it had no associated item (nothing to drop on death) and could not be placed by the Enderman.

      Testing in 1.13-pre1 with this command;

      execute as @e[type=minecraft:enderman] run data merge entity @s {carriedBlockState:{Name:"minecraft:moving_piston"}}
      

      has similar function in regards to block held and drops on death, but the "Moving Piston" block can now, unfortunately, be placed in the world by the Enderman leaving an transparent, invisible block that prevents the player from placing other blocks and can only be broken with TNT or replaced with the setblock command.
