Kotobukiya 1/10th scale Gotham by Gaslight Batman ARTFX+ Statue (Mike Mignola Inspired)

Gotham by Gaslight is the first entry in DC Comics’ Elseworlds series, in which popular artists depict DC heroes in alternate realities, or “elseworlds.” This 1/10th scale ARTFX+ statue depicts the hero in a vignette style, reflecting the late 19th century setting of the graphic novel.

Based a watercolor painting that depicts Batman as he fights with Jack the Ripper in 19th century Gotham City, this ARTFX+ statue recreates the hero in stunning detail. Like the other statues in Kotobukiya’s ARTFX+ line, this statue is 1/10th in scale, allowing you to display it with other ARTFX+ Batman statues for a historical collection!

The sharp lines of the hero’s face, defined shadows, and pale colors of the statue are designed resemble the artist’s original brushstrokes. The attention to detail in this statue is sure to make it a desirable addition to your collection.

IN FLAMES x NEWSOUL Story Of Journey To The West 1/6th scale Monkey King on Throne

Journey to the West is an extended account of the legendary pilgrimage of the Tang dynasty Buddhist monk Xuanzang who traveled to the “Western Regions”, that is, Central Asia and India, to obtain Buddhist sacred texts (sūtras) and returned after many trials and much suffering.

The novel has 100 chapters that can be divided into four unequal parts. The first part, which includes chapters 1–7, is a self-contained introduction to the main story. It deals entirely with the earlier exploits of Sun Wukong, a monkey born from a stone nourished by the Five Elements, who learns the art of the Tao, 72 polymorphic transformations, combat, and secrets of immortality, and through guile and force makes a name for himself, Qitian Dasheng (simplified Chinese: 齐天大圣; traditional Chinese: 齊天大聖), or “Great Sage Equal to Heaven”. His powers grow to match the forces of all of the Eastern (Taoist) deities, and the prologue culminates in Sun’s rebellion against Heaven, during a time when he garnered a post in the celestial bureaucracy. Hubris proves his downfall when the Buddha manages to trap him under a mountain, sealing it with a talisman for five hundred years.

IN FLAMES X NEWSOUL IFT-028 Story Of Journey To The West Series: 1/6th scale MONKEY KING ON THRONE(Deluxe Version) Collectible Set features: 1/6th scale Sun Wukong head sculpt, approximately 30 cm tall 12-inch male body, 9 interchangeable palms. Costume: Red robes, Yellow bloomers, Red cloak. Suit of armor: Monkey King’s newly designed armor (including Purple gold crown, a waist support, a belt, etc).

Haul for Christmas 2017: Scarlett Johansson as Major, Netflix Daredevil and The Last Jedi book

Here’s wishing everyone who’s reading this a very Merry Christmas and glad tidings of great joy :)

Here’s my haul for December 2017, just in time for the Christmas holidays. They include Cat Toys CT-006 1/6th scale Female Character set (essentially Scarlett Johansson as Major Mira Killian / Motoko Kusanagi from the 2017 American science fiction action film Ghost in the Shell based on the Japanese manga of the same name by Masamune Shirow), Hot Toys Television Masterpiece Series TMS003 Netflix Marvel’s Daredevil portrayed by Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock / Daredevil, and Star Wars: The Last Jedi visual dictionary by DK (Dorling Kindersley) Publishing.

In 2017, we finally got to see a live action film of Masamune Shirow’s Ghost in the Shell manga which was first serialized in 1989 and then animated in 1995. The film had its many critics but for me to be able to see the Major and Section 9 being acted out on the big screen is a dream come true. It was certainly a visual treat and the special effects were not a disappointment. Netflix Marvel’s Daredevil web television series was highly successful and led the way for more Marvel superhero characters to debut on television. Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock / Daredevil plays a blind lawyer-by-day who fights crime at night. All episodes of the first season were released on Netflix on April 10, 2015, while the second season was released in its entirety on March 18, 2016. They were met with positive reviews. In July 2016, the series was renewed for a third season; filming for the season began in November 2017, and it is intended to release in 2018.

CT-006 1/6th scale Female Character set comes with: Female head sculpt | Female articulated body, 2 pairs of interchangeable hands including: pair of palms for holding pistol, and pair of relaxed palms | Jumpsuit, Long gloves, Short gloves, Equipment belt, Boots (designed for bare feet), Body armor set, Body armor belt, Shoulder armor, Cod piece armor, Cod piece belt, Calf armor, Knee armor, Shin armor | Fantasy machine gun, Pistol, Pistol holster, Bullet clip x2, Bullet clip holder. You can check out the preview pics HERE.

Close-up picture of the 1/6th scale Scarlett Johansson as Major Mira Killian / Motoko Kusanagi head sculpt. Quite a good resemblance IMHO

Hot Toys TMS003 Marvel’s Daredevil 1:6 scale DAREDEVIL Collectible Figure finally arrived in Singapore. I was quite puzzled as to why this figure was released overseas about two months ago (I’ve seen pictures posted from countries like the United States etc) but only arrived in Singapore now, after the release of the Punisher which actually came after this figure’s announcement. You can check out the Hot Toys TMS004 Marvel’s Daredevil 1/6th scale Jon Bernthal as Punisher 12-inch Collectible Figure review posted on my toy blog HERE and HERE. Still, better late than never :)

Daredevil’s red suit, introduced at the end of the first season, is intended to look like a Kevlar vest, and the black sections are an homage to comic panels where the artists highlighted certain areas with red, with “deeper portions” in shadow. The use of rivets and “architectural” shapes was meant to represent how New York was created as Daredevil is rooted in the authentically gritty New York City neighborhood, Hell’s Kitchen where Matt Murdock grew up.

On the mask, Meinerding noted the difficulty in designing the entire top half of a face that is intended to match the bottom half of an actor’s face, “because half of his face has to be covered and has its own expression and the actor’s face is going to be doing something else”.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi: Visual Dictionary is the definitive guide to Star Wars: The Last Jedi, revealing the characters, creatures, droids, locations, and technology from the new film. Packed with 100+ images and information as penned by Star Wars scribe Pablo Hidalgo, it’s a must-have for all fans who want to go beyond the movie experience.

Star Wars The Force Awakens opened a whole new chapter to the universe we all have come to know and love. Star Wars The Last Jedi brings the new story up a notch and then some. The new heroes play key roles in the film and help to bring the saga to a whole new generation while still keeping the original believers connected to the old stories and continuity.

New characters are also introduced as part of efforts to grow the family and lead newer followers along a fresh path never before trodden.
Movie goers seem to have a love-hate relationship with Nazi Germany of World War II. We all love to hate them nasty Nazis and anyone who fights and defeats them are heroes in our books. Which is probably why the original Imperial Galactic army of episodes IV, V and VI as well as the armies of the new First Order are designed to resemble the old Nazi army of the second World War.

Preview Soldier Story 1/6th scale Iraqi Special Operations Forces “ISOF” 12-inch military figure

Iraqi Special Operations Forces (ISOF) are one of Iraq’s premier fighting units. ISOF have been closely mentored by US special operations forces (SOF) from their inception following the 2003 invasion of Iraq. This relationship was substantially reduced when the United States withdrew forces from Iraq in December 2011, but has been re-established in response to ongoing joint operations targeting the so-called Islamic State. As of October 2016, the US SOF personnel advising ISOF have been elements from Bravo company, 2nd Battalion, 3rd Special Forces Group. ISOF have featured prominently in recent news, spearheading the push into Mosul.

Soldier Story SS105 1/6th scale Iraqi Special Operations Forces “ISOF” 12-inch military figure features: HEADGEAR – MICH 2000 Helmet (/w skull painted at the back) | ACH Helmet side rail (1 pair) | ACH 4-point chin straps | NVD mounting brackets | PVS14 NVG arm | PVS14 NVG | MS2000 strobe light | Surefire helmet light | Skull face mask | White/black Arab shemagh head scarf | Modern ISOF life-like head sculpt | S2.5 BODY, Bare Hand (1 Pair), Bare Feet (1 Pair)

This figure is supposed to represent an actual native Iraqi Special Forces Operator and not a US “advisor” or operator. Loadout is quite accurate

12th December 2017 – Kickstarter project under the title MOTOPSYCLE: mGT, BORGHEAD & GUNRUNNER was launched.

Exclusive interview with Calvin’s Custom on Kickstarter Project: 1/6 scale MOTOPSYCLE: mGT, BORGHEAD & GUNRUNNER by Alex @ Toy Haven with Calvin @ Calvin’s Custom

Alex: Congratulations on the launch of the Kickstarter project! What is it like to run this year long project?
Calvin: Thanks Alex! Time flies… it feels like yesterday when I was on stage talking about the custom bikes with Mr. Bryan Lo of ACI Toys and SEVEN Toys, whom I would like to take this space to thank him again for inviting me to showcase my custom bikes, without which this project would never have come into being.

It has been an amazing experience working with GATE TOYS. They have been totally supportive and gave me 100% creative freedom in the design and development process. Mr. Michael Zhu, co-founder of GATE TOYS told me to design whatever and however I like and let them worry about the production technicality. It felt almost like working on a film with unlimited budget, though time was limited as we were aiming at CICF in October 2017. Still, we managed to have prototypes of both 1/6 and 1/18 versions made for the show.

And special thanks to Luka Zou of Figure Hobby Club in Taiwan and Ethan Chaing of Studio Sundowners, one of the MOTOPSYCLE made it to Taipei Toys Festival, an annual expo known for original design toys in Taiwan.

Alex: It’s great to have so many friends’ support throughout the process. What about the Kickstarter campaign? I can see it involved tremendous amount of preparation. It looks very well planned and executed.
Calvin: Coming from a Corporate Communications and Brand Management background prior to my life as a toy guy, presentation has always been important to me professionally, by that I don’t mean just photography and art works, but the consistency in look and feel, as well as the narrative of the project. Starting from the naming of the project, designing of the rewards, to the subsequent on-going presentation of promotional material after the project is launched, every step has been thought through thoroughly before execution.

The Kickstarter project has indeed gone beyond my skills as a designer and customizer, and called for my experience in another area. Luckily, with the help of my good friend Mr. John Mccormick of Green Wolf Gear, who successfully helped Dorgmal Snow, a British customizer friend of mine, launch a successful Kickstarter last year, I was able to configure the project goal and rewards with a very insightful guided tour. That helped a lot!

Alex: Moving onto the products: starting with the MOTOPSYCLE, can u tell us more about the design, and why a motorcycle instead of a full action figure?
Calvin: Sure! Well, in terms of creativity, for those who have followed my works through the years, I am known to do the obvious but with a twist, like Predator versions of Hellboy and Blade, Hellgal (female version of Hellboy), or Teen Bat and heavily armored old Batman. With MOTOPSYCLE, I wanted to do a gunship on two wheels with heavy artillery, incorporated with the themes of skull and skeleton, applicable to a post-apocalyptic setting.

A fan of mine, Kevin Hall, put it perfectly the other day by calling it “Terminator x Mad Max”.

Design-wise, it was out of a need actually. Although many motorcycles had been produced, American and Japanese, none has what I seek to have as stated above. Ghost Rider’s Hell Bike came close, but with no guns mounted on it, I decided to create my own. And I am glad that many collectors share the same need. When it comes to mass production, even though it will be a very small run this time, around 100 pieces worldwide I think, it is still critical that I am producing what collectors want, not just what I like.

Many people have asked me why I did not choose to release a full figure as my 1st Kickstarter project, or why the project doesn’t come with a full figure. The way I see it, there are already so many figures coming out each and every month, and the market is flooded with licensed, non-licensed and original design figures of different genres. Being a customizer, instead of diving into that, I seek to find a niche that has yet been tapped into, a need that has yet been fulfilled, the obvious but with a twist again :P

Alex: I see, well thought through indeed, and that brings us to the BORGHEAD and GUNRUNNER weapon sets. Seems like although u are not releasing a full action figure, you do have plans, or at least you do want to produce one, no?
Calvin: The BORGHEAD and GUNRUNNER weapon sets were created for two reasons, one is customizer thinking, the other a practical Kickstarter one.

As a customizer, I feel excited and sad at the same time when I see how the hobby has grown. With so many products released at such a high speed these days, collectors don’t really have the time to enjoy a figure as much as we used to. I feel that there are just too many figures to pre-order and unbox, take pictures and share. Today’s highly sort after piece gets shelved or sold to sustain the hobby tomorrow. The figures are not being appreciated enough for the art that went into making them.

The idea of a cyborg headsculpt standalone and weapon sets is to give shelved collections, probably most applicable to military action figures, which the hobby started out with, a SECOND LIFE. I was thinking, all the Navy Seals, SAS, SDU… Special Ops figures that we collected through the years, instead of eating dust on the shelf, I would very much like to offer something that could motivate collectors to bring them out and shine again for one more time at least, to go with several recent futuristic military cyborgs release, or battle with the latest instalment of superheroes.

It’s unlikely I will be producing a full action figure anytime soon, at least not in a over 100 quantity, but one thing is for sure: once this MOTOPSYCLE:mGT project is successfully backed, GATE TOYS and I have in store cyborg arms, hands and armor later in 2018 to help collectors to build their own cyborgs.

The more practical reason for creating the BORGHEAD and GUNRUNNER weapon sets was that I know not every one is into motorcycle, and surely not every one has the budget for it. So to help us reach our goal, these items will serve as a lower priced point options for collectors to contribute to the project so it would ultimately reach its goal.

Alex: I really like the idea of a SECOND LIFE for shelved action figures, very Toy Story like! Now, speaking about options, can u tell us a little more about the Rewards, specifically why so many different versions of the MOTOPSYCLEs? Probably quite difficult for those who have problem making decisions, lol!
Calvin: Lol! Yeah, I think Toy Story does speak to all of us toy lovers, well put :P On the options, yes, I intended that from day one there will be different versions. Essentially the design is the same for the bike, headsculpt and weapons The reasons for the different colors is again based on needs as different collectors of different themes would need different colors for the bikes, hence the Black version which is more generic for most action figures, from superheroes to movie characters Then there are the military versions for military figures collectors. Also, the silver and T-version would work well with sci-fi characters.

Since this is aa extremely limited quantity production, which I would be personally involved with in the painting and weathering of it, I have a bigger flexibility in the offerings, and hence serve a wider variety of needs among collectors.

Also, again, customizer thinking customization, I do love to offer collectors as many options as possible, so whether the MOTOPSYCLE or the BORGHEAD or the GUNRUNNER weapon sets, I hope they can find a variety of use for them, not just a one time unbox > take pics > to shelf or display case experience.

Alex: Excellent! Apart from the cyborg accessories mentioned earlier, are there any other future plans for mass production that you can share with us?
Calvin: Yes there are actually. The prototypes of the 1/18 scale version of this project have already been developed. As I have many customizer and collector friends who collect 1/18 scale, as well as the fans of G.I. Joe, Boss Fight Studio, Marauder Task Force and Acid Rain, so, as soon as this 1/6 project is successfully backed, we will launch the 1/18 version on Kickstarter in Q1 2018. And for every 1/18 collectors’ 26USD “Fire Support” in the current 1/6 Kickstarter project, special offer will be offered later in the 1/18 Kickstarter project.

For 1/6th scale, I am also in talks with several good friends of mine in the industry. There might be some crossover projects with several known brands next year.

Alex: Sounds exciting! Can’t wait!!! Lastly, any words for the readers of Toy Haven?
Calvin: Thanks Alex. Yes, the goal of the Kickstarter Project is the actual production cost we need to initiate the production, and every SHARE and SUPPORT is critical to reach this goal. Since it is the Christmas season, and in order to thank you and your readers for taking the time and interests in the project, GATE TOYS and I would like to give a special offer to all TOY HAVEN readers:
Per every purchase of any version of the MOTOPSYCLE, a FREE 1/6 scale Cyborg Skull Face headsculpt (Black Ops version) and full set of 1/6 GUNRUNNER weapon set of 5 weapons (Black version) will be given to all TOY HAVEN readers.

To claim the FREE gifts, you can simply message the project FB page: https://www.facebook.com/motopsycle/ with a screen capture of your backing of the project and type “TOY HAVEN”.

Thanks again for the interview Alex and I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

Evaluation of Speech for the Google Assistant

Posted by Enrique Alfonseca, Staff Research Scientist, Google Assistant

Voice interactions with technology are becoming a key part of our lives — from asking your phone for traffic conditions to work to using a smart device at home to turn on the lights or play music. The Google Assistant is designed to provide help and information across a variety of platforms, and is built to bring together a number of products — including Google Maps, Search, Google Photos, third party services, and more. For some of these products, we have released specific evaluation guidelines, like Search Quality Rating Guidelines. However, the Google Assistant needs its own guidelines in place, as many of its interactions utilize what is called “eyes-free technology,” when there is no screen as part of the experience.

In the past we have received requests to see our evaluation guidelines from academics who are researching improvements in voice interactions, question answering and voice-guided exploration. To facilitate their evaluations, we are publishing some of the first Google Assistant guidelines. It is our hope that making these guidelines public will help the research community build and evaluate their own systems.

Creating the Guidelines
For many queries, responses are presented on the display (like a phone) with a graph, a table, or an interactive element, like you’d see for [weather this weekend].

But spoken responses are very different from display results, as what’s on screen needs to be translated into useful speech. Furthermore, the contents of the voice response are sometimes sourced from the web, and in those cases it’s important to provide the user with a link to the original source. While users looking at their mobile device can click through to read the original web page, an eyes free solution presents unique challenges. In order to generate the optimal audio response, we use a combination of explicit linguistic knowledge and deep learning solutions that allow us to keep answers grammatical, fluent and concise.

How do we ensure that we consistently meet user expectations on quality, across all answer types and languages? One of the tools we use to measure that are human evaluations. In these, we ask raters to make sure that answers are satisfactory across several dimensions:

  • Information Satisfaction: the content of the answer should meet the information needs of the user.
  • Length: when a displayed answer is too long, users can quickly scan it visually and locate the relevant information. For voice answers, that is not possible. It is much more important to ensure that we provide a helpful amount of information, hopefully not too much or too little. Some of our previous work is currently in use for identifying the most relevant fragments of answers.
  • Formulation: it is much easier to understand a badly formulated written answer than an ungrammatical spoken answer, so more care has to be placed in ensuring grammatical correctness.
  • Elocution: spoken answers must have proper pronunciation and prosody. Improvements in text-to-speech generation, such as WaveNet and Tacotron 2, are quickly reducing the gap with human performance.

The current version of the guidelines can be found here. Of course, guidelines are often updated, and these are just a snapshot of something that is a living, changing, always-work-in-progress evaluation!
