    The first two came out this year as a candy promotion, you put on stickers and they do transform. The other two, I have no idea.

    From what I've been able to figure out, they were released in gashapon machines in Japan (similar to gumball machines in the US) in small plastic bubbles. They were also released in the boxes as shown on BBTS. They are small transformable model kits that you have to put together yourself. Each one was released in green, yellow, blue, and a pinkish-orange color and they stand just over 2 inches tall. I've got Optimus in all four colors. Here's a pic of the green one:

    I do not know who they were released by though. They similar in style to Kabaya model kits, but the instructions don't say Kabaya anywhere on them, and I don't own any of the boxes (mine all came in the plastic bubbles). Hope that helps.
