Programming Note

16bit.comHi all! After doing the toy journalism thing almost daily since 1995, we're shuffling the schedule to give me a bit of a break. Star Wars Q&A will continue to go on Galactic Hunter every Monday (Sunday overnight.) Star Wars Figure of the Day will be up on Galactic Hunter every Tuesday and Thursday - links will appear here on 16bit.com on Wednesday and Friday. 16bit.com Figure of the Day will post a new feature here every Tuesday and Thursday.

This schedule could change, but right now I needed less to do - to keep up I had to write 1-2 reviews per day every day over the past 12 years, sometimes more when I had business travel. I'm going to try this and see if it's less manic - and we're going to try to focus on more esoteric stuff as the buffer thins out a bit. Also, you're gong to see a figure debut in Thursday's review. It's a winner.
