On the inside, Great Mazinga is printed black and red on blue vinyl while Raydeen is black and red on green vinyl. Dragun is printed blue and black on red vinly while the weapons are printed blue and black on yellow vinyl.
There are 32 playing pieces in all plus a "copyright" piece.
The background is of a futuristic city being attacked by a spaceship - you can arrange the Shoguns around to create your own battle sequence or scene.
The box reads: "Invincible guardians of world freedom! Dragun™, Great Mazinga™, Raydeen™, take shape with Colorforms plastic pieces that stick like magic. No scissors. No paste. Never a muss."
I've owned two of these sets - one had the generic Colorforms instruction booklet while the second had this special Shogun Warriors booklet - note the Mattel copyright along one edge.
