    This achievement unlocks once you have successfully created an Iron Golem. This must be done in survival mode.

    To complete this achievement you need 4 iron blocks (36 iron ingots) and a pumpkin.

    Iron blocks are crafted using 9 iron ingots (fill all squares in table). Pumpkins are found in the wild on the surface, or can be grown if you find pumpkin seeds (located in chests in stronghold/abandoned mineshafts).

    Now you have these blocks you can create the iron golem by placing them like this:

    It should transform into this:

    SpeciallyTDerpWith the newest update, you need to use shears on the pumpkin to carve a face on it before you place it.

    If you don't, the Golem will still be created, but no achievement.

    SwedelSlug224Was wondering why I wasn't getting the achievement. Would be worth updating the solution.

    I Gil Galad IFor whatever reason, I put all the iron down, and placed the pumpkin on top to shear it in place, but it created the iron golem and I got the achievement anyway.

    I've updated JumboWario's world to make this easier. Go into the back room. Here's the file:

    His original world is in this forum:

    Minecraft World for All 1,000 Gamerscore

    In the chest is a pumpkin. Place the pumpkin on top of the iron blocks. Voila!

    UPDATE: The pumpkin must now be sheared (with shears, takes 2 iron bars) to look like a jack-o-lantern before placing it as the head. That's an update to the game.

    TeddynavUpdate: Just got the achievement by joining xbox insider program and then updating to 1.9 beta. Not sure if the sheared pumpkin worked or the other one but the achievement popped unexpectedly for me.

    Mental Knight 5Works now without having to be an Insider, and does not have to be sheared.

    If you are on version 1.7, simply join the xbox insider program by downloading the app and it will allow you to update to 1.9 beta through the windows store. Then, follow the solution by shearing a pumpkin on an achievement world and the achievement will pop.

    NorstevUnfortunately, I am having trouble getting in. I've joined the minecraft beta program, but it's just pending then says your registration is taking longer than expected. Please check back later. Were you able to get in immediately?

    TeddynavI'm reading some forums and it says that it may take up to 24 hours for the application to to process. If it does not come through then let me know.

    I've been reading on this forum from microsoft some issues that may arise:
