I was just looking at the review queue on Stackoverflow and there were zero "First Posts" to be reviewed. A minute later, there was suddenly 9.9k "First Posts" in the review queue. Is this a bug?

I completed 20 reviews, so it is not just the number being displayed that has a bug.

large first post queue

    Not a duplicate in this case given Nick's answer below.

    Looks like the 20 reviews per day limit is temporarily upped to 40. Commented Mar 27, 2013 at 23:33

    lol for moments I though that I had just unlock some "feature" in SO and got rewarded with a bigger first post queue :)

There was a bug by which questions were not being added to the queue, that bug was just resolved and the queue got the items it should have had.

It's being burned through at an incredible rate though, it won't be there long.

    Aaaaand they're gone. Hey, I have an idea! Can you take 10k posts from the close votes review queue and drop them in first posts? ;) Commented Mar 28, 2013 at 12:20

    @BilltheLizard that's actually a great idea. I'd love to see that happen.
