You must find one in a dungeon. From there you may be able to push it with pistons until you get it where you want it. I'm not sure about that though.

Spawners are unobtainable, even in creative. You must find a mod that adds them, or edit your inventory using an outside program.

I have the computer version of the game and is only obtainable through that version. And even if you want one in the computer you need to bee in creative and do /give @p mob_spawner 1 0. Get pumped for 1.9 though, you can fly. ;)

You have to keep digging until you find an abandoned mine, which you will most likely get lost in.

To get a mob spawner you can either use creative mode or a feather touch pickaxe

worked for me too! do/give (username) mob_spawner (amount needed)
Guest said: 10th Jun 2015 | REPORT
but, it only gives you a pig spawner?!
Guest said: 17th Jun 2015 | REPORT
in crative you can change it to whatever you want, with a normal mob spawner it will be a pig spawner but with a spawn egg ( say creeper spawn egg) you right click with the spawn egg in your hand on the spawner, whatever spawn egg you have and right click on the mob spawner it will change into that mob, in this case a creeper, hope this helps,

You can use /give {name} 52 although it will only spawn pigs if using an unmodded version of minecraft. Download the spawnerGUI mod to spawn a passive or hostile mob of your choice.

To get a spawner you can cheat /setblock ~ ~ ~ mob_spawner 0 destroy {EntityId:name of mobs you want}
And you can also add toomanyitem in your minecraft go to version click the version you want and open with
winrar and add all the files in make sure it's same version of toomanyitem and you minecraft version
