Topic: How to Create External TinyMCE buttons?

Hi, I've been searching for a while now to see if there's a way to create an external button which interacts with TinyMCE. I keep finding multiple posts on how to do it with v3 but I'm using TinyMCE 4 so the functions fail.

What I'm trying to achieve is having a regular input button above the editor which when clicked will trigger one of the toolbar buttons and open the modal (or whatever that button normally does).

While these buttons are already on the TinyMCE toolbar, the purpose of this is to be able to highlight featured larger buttons/plugins which my clients will want, but may not notice as a smaller icon on the standard toolbar.

Hopefully this makes sense. Is this possible?
