I was hoping #42030 would be a giant RC backhoe/loader. If #42030 is an excavator then #42006 probably won't do that well EOL.
If they make further LOTR sets (which is by no means assured) I don't see why they would redo the ringwraith. There are enough scenes missing without needing to go back and do another ringwraith scene. As noted by @pharmjod, the Witch King might make sense if him vs Eowyn in a set, but not another normal ringwraith. I also doubt they'd do a ringwraith plus horse in a poly, especially as licensed polys tend to support current / slightly future sets, not past ones.
I got my nine (well, 12 of them as I ended up with some spares as someone was selling them cheap on BL). I'll happily sell off the extra ones if we get a Witch King.
I get that the design is used before, but they already have a RC Bulldozer and RC Excavator, and Dump trucks are apparently not exciting enough for LEGO as a flagship, so you have this one. Which looks much bigger scale than the last Front loader IMO
Though this is no 'trenchdigger'
From what I have seen on Volvo's site, a trench digger has wheels and looks like an excavator. Good grief I hope it is not that.
Or even (shamless plug)... http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/49298
#42029 is (yet another) 4WD truck, I've still got #8081s in the loft.
*Exonerated by #41999
The 42029 brings back the 5 x 11 red panels(a lot of them) so if you are sitting on any of them or have a high price on them, it's time unload them...
The flagship set for technics this year is indeed a Volvo set, I just saw this a couple of days ago in a retailer catalog
