Mattel No. 2625 Shogun U-Combine Combatra Deluxe SetThe Shogun Combatra Deluxe Set appears to be fairly rare - I've only seen a handful for sale and they seem to sell for quite a bit of money, usually in excess of $1000 but I've seen at least on set sell for $1600 (it was very minty and complete. The set I own showed up in a Yahoo.Japan! Auction - go figure. It was probably quite reasonable in comparison with the original Popy set and I believe is a bit more robust than the GoDaiKin version which seems to be a bit fragile.
The set includes all the inserts from the five individual U-Combine Combatra vehicle chip-boxes:

The box reads:
"Distributed by Mattel, Inc. Hawthorne, CA 90250. MADE IN JAPAN. PACKAGE PRINTED IN U.S.A. Manufactured by Bandai Co. Ltd."
"U-Combine (TM) Shogun Combatra Deluxe Set"
"This PACKAGE CONTAINS: All five U-Combine (TM) SHOGUN(TM) Combatra vehicles: BATTLE JET, BATTLE CLASHER, BATTLE TANK, BATTLE MARINE & BATTLE CRAFT. Each toy is complete in itself. Additional instructions on how to combine five vehicles to make a Robot Blockbuster ground machine are included."
This set was fairly expensive to purchase at retail (I've heard something like $39.95 but haven't confirmed). I also haven't seen this set in a Mattel Catalog.
