This set really feels like a further improvement on an official alternate build for set 31066 Creator 3-in-1 from 2017. :thumbup:

Printed canopies are always an improvement (though it'd be even better if it were Trans-Yellow or something other than Trans-Black). :classic:

Interesting that all of the new City space sets have disappeared from the Lego Shop except for the little minifigure set.  I had them on my wish list to keep track of them but they vanished a couple of days ago.

Of course they sold out! This is the best space range since 1980something.

They aren't even for sale yet, they just vanished from the US LEGO store website, from the only sets still on there, the 4-space minifigs show June 1st, the other sets August 1st.

60203 Ski Ressort - 80 Euros (in Germany)

(source: brickset + brickmerge)

I'm really looking forward to seeing pics of this set!

For 80 Euros a small ski hut, a little snowy mountain and a simple ski lift could be included, don't you think?

Maybe they were erroneously listed early.

A ski resort.......and out of left field Lego does it again to confuse us all. Only the rescue copter from last year is the thing related to skiing well maybe the snow plow truck but yeah might be worth it.

Thank you very much for this info, dimaks13! :classic:

Do you already know its release date and what else there'll be included? It would be nice to know.

Well, I have to agree with you, lightningtiger, that the set appears completely surprisingly. I would much more have thought about a circus or a zoo or an amusement park set to go with the Fun at the Fair people pack.

Nevertheless I bet that this set will be great: You mentioned last year's rescue copter and this year's snow plow to go with it - plus for sure it will fit in our Winter Villages (if you placed the WV nowadays and used other City sets inside it, too).

2017 Friends had a skiing theme (which released in August)

Also there was a Creator 3-in-1 small snow cabin with ski/snowboard in 2018.

Creator, Friends and City have all sorts of overlap on subthemes as of recent years, like we see now with Amusement Parks and Beach sets.

I don't think it's coincidence for overlap from a business standpoint, like we see this summer with the 2 bigger (€80/85) Creator (Townhouse+Cafe), and City Donut shop sets being Coffee related.

Similar can be said for overlap with this year Creator Expert Lunar Lander and City Space sets. (which also relates to the 50th year of the first moon landing)

August release, has three vehicles and a bunch of different non-moving builds. Won't specify, sorry.

It's ok that you don't specify. But can you please tell us whether the set will be a stand-alone or whether there'll be a whole ski theme with several sets placed around this one?

I'd say a one-off, but you never know. :shrug_oh_well:

Thanks, @dimaks13! :classic:

I could well imagine the three vehicles being a snowmobile, a landrover (loaded with skis and snowboards) and maybe a helicopter (although I would have no idea what it shall inside the set, but it seems that a lot of the bigger sets "need" to include small copters).

Here my thoughts on the Space subtheme:
 

Satellite Maintenance Polybag :thumbup:

Con:

none

Pro:

+ perfect price ratio performance

+ nice minifigure

+ looking very realistic

+ satellite has the perfect size and is very detailed, too

 

Lunar Station :wub:

Con:

- shuttle is too small and that it docks with its end to the station is completely unrealistic (it would have been better to instead include the things below)

- no air lock towards the outside

- no orange crane (like shown in the prelim)

- more solar panels would have been desirable

Pro:

+ good price ratio performance

+ some solar panels

+ good minifigure selection

+ three rooms

+ looking very realistic (apart from the shuttle)

+ much and very detailed interior inside the rooms

 

I'm not interersted in the other Space sets - they look too futuristic too me, the rollercoaster rails in the space port are absurd and the lab in the exclusive set is nice, but much too open without any sidewalls. :sceptic:

I knew you would complain about the rollercoaster rails you are a very boring person with no sense of imagination

learn to be a true lego fan for once

Doesn't have a mountain actually.

Thanks for the info, @dimaks13!

So being no mountain in this set, there for sure won't be a ski lift included. That's a pity. But I bet that there'll be a lot of other nice stuff included. A ski hotel oder a winter sports shop would be great. And an Aprés-Ski-party or a small mountain hut would be quite nice, too. I could well imagine TLG throwing in some rescue stuff, too - maybe a very small rescue copter with hinge and / or a small rescue HQ. Well, I fear we have to be patient for one more month to see the first pictures appearing.

I kinda wish such a set had a fairly comprehensive Ski Lodge build, similar to what Playmobil had offered a little while ago:

I hope your right, but seeing how it's City themed and not Creator, having a civilian building as main build is more of an exception then rule. 

Of course I could be wrong, because 2019 already had the snow groomer and the 2018 Ambulance Rescue Helicopter is still for sale.

If anything I expect any possibility of : (pure speculation, partly based off the 2017 (Summer) Friends Snow Resort line  https://brickset.com/sets/theme-Friends/subtheme-Snow-Resort and the 2018 Creator 3-in-1 Winter Vacation sets)

  • Lodge/Log Cabin
  • Small Ski-lift
  • Slalom Area , small side builds with red/blue flags, not an actual slope.
  • Snow Mobile
  • Snacks or Ski/Snowboard stall
  • Orange-ish border barriers
  • Small Snow ramp (a few sloped bricks) or Halfpipe (maybe another reference to the Xtreme, see snow groomer stickers/minifig with X on torso)
  • Tree/rock sidebuild
  • Family car
  • Small snowplow with worker minifig + tools.
