I've tried:

/summon falling_block {Block:command_block 2,Time:1}

but it says:

[16:09:26] Data tag parsing failed: Expected '}' but got '2' at: {Block:command_block 2<--[HERE]

If I use:

/summon falling_block {Block:command_block,Time:1}

it succeeds but then it is facing down.

  • Does adding the tag "Data:4" help? I think that's the metadata of the block, but I can't test it right now. If it works, I'll write it as an answer. Sep 30 '17 at 19:35

You have to specify the block data in order to rotate it. In your case, east would be 5. You do this by adding Data to your command. I also added coordinate information.

/summon falling_block ~ ~1 ~1 {Block:"minecraft:command_block",Time:1,Data:5}

Here is a list of block data from the wiki linked above:

  • 0: facing down
  • 1: facing up
  • 2: facing north
  • 3: facing south
  • 4: facing west
  • 5: facing east
