Landick Brothers Set vs. Land Brothers Zord Vehicle
Instead of having auxiliary robots that combine with the main one, Goseiger took a different approach with their Headder gimmick. Each set of Headders contained three Headders that belonged to that specific Gosei Tribe. These would then attach to Gosei Great’s ports and create a new formation. Since Bandai America did not want to release Zords all by their lonesome, Bandai America attached them to a hovercraft like vehicle and distributed them in the Zord Vehicle assortment (the way auxiliary Zords were distributed in Samurai).
The second to be released in Goseiger was the Landick Brothers Set, which consisted of the Kuwaga Headder, the Sai Headder, and the Tyranno Headder. Each one had their own action gimmick. Kuwaga Headder’s horns move when the lever on top is pulled. A dial turns the Sai Headder’s drill. Tyranno Headder’s mouth chomps up and down as you roll him around. They were brought into Megaforce as the Land Brothers, made up of the Beetle Zord, Rhino Zord, and Dino Zord. Together they could combine with Gosei Great to form Landick Gosei Great, called Land Megazord in Power Rangers Megaforce. Another formation appropriately called Another Landick Gosei Great was used once in the show. It is unknown if it will be used in Megaforce or not.
