42030 Behind the scenes

In a couple of days we got the teaser and the Behind the Scenes video for the 42030 Remote-Controlled VOLVO L350F Wheel Loader.
These videos are always very interesting and informative on certain aspects of the LEGO sets design process, commercials production and many other unseen details. We didn't see one since the commercials production of 42010 / 42011 Pullback Racers [1], but the best of bread up to now were the videos with Markus Kossman, produced for the 8275 Motorized Bulldozer, after its introduction in 2007 along with the new Power Functions system back then.

This time we first got a Behind the Scenes teaser,

Immediately followed by the real stuff.
Here we see a lot of known faces, can become aware about some details on how the LEGO and Volvo collaboration went through, and how does Jeppe drives and digs up one of the heaviest machines in earth...

But we also get to see some details about the photography studio, sets boxes' artwork production and mock-ups printing, or if you pay some attention you can see sketch models, early prototypes or mockups for new parts and 3D prints for the definitive ones.

There is even a nice poster from the upcoming 42039 LMP Racer on the wall...

A few weeks back we got to see also a couple other videos, with Milan Reindl about this and another 2H14 model, but I cannot embed them here. These were not published at LEGO's YouTube channel and latest LEGO content management system turns it virtually impossible to retrieve the videos on their website...

Although you can see them at the movies section from LEGO Technic website.

Great video, tho I'm still not sold on the loader it's great to see behind the scenes. At 0:22 you can see the 42039 racer on a poster, but on another poster there is 42029 on some freaking awesome looking wheels. Is that photoshop or a peek of the future?

I believe these wheels are just some artwork an not something new to be released.

As we can see, it looks the rear wheels don't even fit inside the fenders... :P
