We picked up the four recently released Quick Changers this weekend at Walmart. (we found them mixed in with Action Agents on the pegs)
I haven't been able to post any pictures until now because my kids won't stop playing with them.
These Mattel toys are 1:55 (or maybe about 1:53?) scale all plastic versions of Mater, Lightning, Finn and Nigel that each feature two eye expressions plus some other movable attribute.
Mechanically they have a 'click pen' mechanism with two positions. Each push of the back window (or for Mater his tow boom) cycles back and forth between the two states. One position has a 'hair trigger' and is supposed to pop over when the vehicle is crashed but in our experience the only way to get this to happen is a 3' drop onto a hard floor; I am trying to get the boys to stop trying that approach.
Wasabi Mater is the best, push his boom and he sticks out a green tongue. (but they did not use the Cars 2 'Team 95' door design)
Crash Damage Lightning is the worst, as with all the plastic Lightnings his stickers were already peeling off inside the package and correct me if I'm wrong but I can't recall him ever crashing in Cars 2?
Karate Finn shares the same two front wheels splay outwards action as Lightning but instead of a crash here it is a positive action.
Crash Damage Nigel is more ambitious than the others, instead of splayed wheels, his hood bends up in the middle. Unfortunately the effect doesn't work very well and it can be hard to tell if his hood is up or down.
This line probably won't interest collectors much, but like the 1:55 pull backs, my kids love them as there's more play interest than with the diecasts.

Found Quick Changer Stephenson, $12 at Walmart.
There are two buttons on the roof, one changes the eyes and pops open/closed the Gatling guns,
the other launches a Car from inside out the back door.
Apparently a Quick Changer playset is coming also.

chuki_mama,

 

The # on the package and receipt is 7 46775 10224 1. Not sure if that's the UPC. If not, where would I find the UPC #?

Saw the new Quick Changers Case J, it had Raoule CaRoule with Crash Damage and Francesco with Crash Damage.  Unfortunately, they just don't seem interesting at all Frown
