After a brief delay, the LEGO Star Wars Umbaran MHC (Mobile Heavy Cannon) has started showing up at stores. For some reason this set took a little longer to hit shelves (here in Minnesota anyway), but I managed to find this set at Target yesterday for $49.99. Click the image above for a closer look.

Images have hit the web revealing that a new (smaller?) Jabba’s Sail Barge (75020) is scheduled for release next year in June. The set looks to include mini figures of Jabba, Slave Leia, Ree-Yees, R2-D2 (with bar accessories), Barada and Max Rebo.
Also revealed is a revamped Republic Gunship (75021), also available in June, and will include mini figures of Padme, Clone Trooper, Clone Trooper Pilot, Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan and 2 Super Battle Droids
Looks like more of the new 2013 LEGO sets are hitting retail. @Jesse_James77 from JediDefender tweets finding the A-wing, AT-RT and The Old Republic Republic vs Sith Troopers sets at his local Kmart.
As I was preparing to check out of my local Target this morning I noticed that the the LEGO Republic Attack Cruiser polybag has finally been replaced with the TIE Fighter (8028) Set. This is a simple repack from 2008 features 44 pieces.
UPDATE: Thanks to a tip from Adam Pawlus on Twitter, it looks like this and the MTT and Star Destroyer polybags are also available at Walmart.
WALMART stores are getting LEGO PDQs with polybagged sets. Includes MTT, TIE Fighter, and Star Destroyer for $3.96 per.
