Three new models with V-shaped field potentials U are considered: a complex scalar field X in 1 + 1 dimensions with U(X) = \X\, a real scalar field Φ in 2+1 dimensions with U(Φ) = |Φ|, and a real scalar field φ in 1 + 1 dimensions with U(φ) = φ⊖(φ) where ⊖ is the step function. Several explicit, self-similar solutions are found. They describe interesting dynamical processes, for example, "freezing" a string in a static configuration.
