SDCC’s Exclusive Super Best Friends Forever Figures Will Be Available From DC Collectibles

Supergirly

For those of you who missed out on the Super Best Friends Forever merchandise at San Diego Comic-Con this year and don't want to hunt down the adorably animated figures on Ebay, DC Collectibles is making life a little easier for you. The three Super Best Friends will be sold separately as Super Secret Storage Boxes, and each will come with the added bonus of two extra heads, with adorably fierce and silly expressions. Each figure will be sold for $24.95, starting in December of this year, and while they are not together, acquiring all three is certainly possible. Check out Supergirl and Wonder Girl after the break.

The Super Best Friends Forever Get an Official Zazzle Store, I Get a New iPhone Case

Supergirly

There's nothing wrong with loving a well made kids cartoon as an adult: you just might have to at some point face the fact that the show is, for better or worse, probably only going to be considered successful by networks based on how well its merchandise sells, not on ratings. It's just something that television animation fans get used to. This is at least partially why, with all the attention and love for The Super Best Friends Forever shorts on DC Nation, that folks have been clamoring for DC to offer merchandise of the characters in these incarnations. What I'm trying to say is: If you want there to ever be a chance for SBFF as a full series, go buy a tote or something.

OMG: Super Best Friends Forever Exclusive Merchandise At SDCC This Year

Yes. Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes. Yes.

If you love the Lauren Faust created DC Nation short, Super Best Friends Forever, you're in luck. Although we won't be seeing any more animated shorts (at least anytime soon), DC has made the wise decision to create a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive statue set. USA Today has the rest of the DC con exclusives but we have tunnel vision right now. Take our money. Take it now. The three together will run $49.95 and of course, you'll have to physically be at SDCC or know someone going to get one. Or risk scary Ebay prices after the fact.

Super Best Friends Forever Will Not Continue With the Next Season of DC Nation

Great Hera!

Lauren Faust tweeted this picture last night along with the text "Been missing these ladies lately..." This prompted our fellow ladies in comics blogger Sue from DC Women Kicking Ass to press for more information, and Faust, the showrunner behind My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and The Super Best Friends Forever shorts for the DC Nation hour on Cartoon Network, confirmed the sad news that when DC Nation finally returns from an unexpected hiatus in January, we won't be seeing any more of the SBFF's brand of equal opportunity crime fighting any time soon.

Monday Cute: The Super Best Friends Forever Teach Solomon Grundy a Valuable Lesson

Supergirly

My name is Susana and this is my favorite screencap of the latest SBFF short on the Citadel. I remember Lauren Faust saying, when the shorts were announced, that they were going to have minimal action in them, but you wouldn't know it from the last few installments of the series.

Things We Saw Today: Pussy Riot Sentenced to Two Years in Prison for “Hooliganism”

Things We Saw Today

Sigh. After being arrested in March 2012 for a guerilla performance in Moscow's main cathedral, in which the band said a "punk prayer" to the Virgin Mary to protect Russia from President Vladimir Putin, the punk band's members--Maria Alyokhina, 24, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, 22, and Yekaterina Samutsevich, 29--have been convicted of "hooliganism motivated by religious hatred" and sentenced to two years in prison. (The Hollywood Reporter) You can learn more about how to get involved here.

Great Hera!

Okay, so I might have given away the ending gag in the title, but the best gag in the short also features someone's end, and I haven't given it away yet, so you should probably just watch the short before I loose my composure. (via Cute Overload.) Previously in Super Best Friends Forever

Enjoy a Sneak Peek of This Weekend’s Super Best Friends Forever, Featuring Supergirl and a Super Special Guest

Great Hera!

While I'm primarily a Batman fan, each of the girls Super Best Friends Forever have walked straight into my heart and set up shop. Batgirl, for being the adorable nerdy fangirl of the group, Wonder Girl for basically being a female Samurai Jack, and Supergirl as soon as she suggested, with a throwing up of The Horns and a bit of an electric guitar riff, that Lex Luthor's secret lair could use a good TP-ing. And speaking of Supergirl, she's the one girl we haven't seen get a short centered on her yet. I mean, it's not surprising, there have only been two shorts so far, centered on the home life of Wonder Girl and Batgirl, so logically the third one would focus on Supergirl. But I still squeed a bit when I saw this preview. I mean, come on. Listen to this evil laugh. (via Comics Alliance.)

It seems like every time Lauren Faust opens answers a question about how to make girl's entertainment, something awesome comes out, so forgive us if we're still a blinking at our good fortune to have DC Comics get her to make a series of animated shorts featuring three of the most famous female sidekicks in the DC universe. And blinking at how cute the designs look. And now gushing over her descriptions of how she'll be characterizing them. I mean, just look at some of the stuff she said to io9:
