Apparently these will be available as freebies with a can of coffee by Suntory Coffee Boss.

Available figures are cheap mini-PVC figures, called "Character Figures", of G1 Optimus Prime, Megatron, Starscream, Jazz, Bumblebee, Ironhide, Shockwave, Soundwave, Astrotrain and Wheeljack, plus three gold metallic figures (called "[something] Metallic Figures") of Optimus, Megatron and Starscream...

And redecos of two of the three Cybertron Giant Planet Mini-Cons, Longarm (named "Craydon") and Deepdive (named "Seawave").

I want them all, dammit!

Though the original colors of those Mini-Cons do look better.

Even though the campaign is officially scheduled to start on August 26, it seems that some people got theirs a few days early again. From the recently moved Japanese Transformers Image Board:

Mini-Cons are out too... and apparently they're NOT blind-packed!

Reportedly not. It's canned coffee.

It does taste a bit crappy. I've found most of the figures already but I have a bit of a mad rush to find the last couple before they disappear. They're not too bad quality actually.
