Default Kinnerton Transformers Advent calendars for 2018

Last year we had two advent calendars for Transformers, and this year it looks like we have three - the Ooshies advent calendar, and two chocolate ones from Kinnerton (thanks to a tip off by member Galvatran to their website).

As of this week, both of the Kinnerton ones are now out, with the cheaper one found at BigW (so far), and the more expensive one found at Aldi (so far).
Cheaper one (Optimus and Bumblebee on the front) - $3 at BigW - 24 days/chocolates (40gm).
Glossy one (just Bumblebee on the front) - $4 at Aldi - 25 days/chocolates (90gm).

We've been having Kinnerton advent calendars in Australia since the first Movie in 2007, so the format hasn't really changed - a thin cardboard package with a plastic tray inside of 24-25 chocolates that you access by opening up doors/flaps for each day of December. (basically, you need to get this, or give this, before December 1st)
I think images printed inside the packaging (revealed when opening the flaps) is new though. I'm pretty sure previous ones were just blank cardboard inside.

If you see them at other retailers, let us know.
(and if you see the Ooshies calendar at all, post it here or in its news topic)
