    I was at Target today and spied these in the sporting goods area. I don't know if they've been spotted before, but thought I'd share these pics I snapped from my cellphone.

    The fishing rod kit sells for $11.99, while the tackle box retails for $7.99.
    The reel, painted silver; has a red Autobot logo on it, while the handle has an image of Optimus on it. The tackle box is black and red, with both the Transformers logo, with pictures of Optimus Prime.

    I don't know about the fishing pole, but the tackle box was available during last movie.

    These are still TF1-branded items. Everything in the set has been released individually, but not bundled together. I bought this a few weeks ago, but forgot to put it up.

    Don't forget your Optimus Prime bobber (same aisle but sold separately).

    saw em tonight at Walmart for $10.96.
    I may grab one, put a swivel on it and multitask with it.
    i like the short rods as a sniper- i can cast into hard to reach spots easier with a short rod like this- and with spiderwire, i think i can handle what's in my fishin' hole.
    also, i can take whatever lure i got off the swivel and then attach one of my kites to it and fly them using the reel. great way to control line and darn easier to reel kites back in.
    so a good deal for 10-12 bucks.

    Cool man thanks for the info

    That tackle box will be great for a parts box. Hell maybe I can even fish with plastic missles

    I'm not too big on fishing... I used to go fishing at a pond on my aunt's farm back in junior high... but... I'd so like to get myself Transformers fishing gear.
