From New York City to Los Angeles, and everywhere inbetween

There's a lot of events going on in the next week, some big and some small. Releases, pop-up shops, exhibit openings and official opening parties are all on the docket through next Wednesday ... but rather than flood Tomopop with a whole bunch of posts, why not round them up? That's what we've decided to do this week, giving you the info on everything we know is going on but without cluttering up your RSS feeds. You're welcome.

So what's on tap for the next few days? Hit the jump to find out!

Friday, Sept. 28:

Tinder Toys Release Party and Signing — Rotofugi (2780 N. Lincoln Ave., Chicago) — 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Central

Come celebrate the launch of the new 3-to-3.75-inch Tinder Toys series, featuring designs from Jeremy Tinder, sculpted by Josh Sutton and produced by Squibbles Ink. The series features three characters: Clem, Rabburt and Boyger, fitting names for the designs of all three. Jeremy will be there for signings, and if you can't make it, the figures will be on sale in a general release on Oct. 1 for US$11.95 each.

Saturday, Sept. 29:

Kidrobot Boulder's Super Official Opening — 1468 Pearl St., Boulder, Colo. (in Pearl Street Mall) — 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Mountain

Sure, Kidrobot Boulder has already been open for a while, but there hasn't been an official opening party until now to make things super official. As announced by Kidrobot, Scribe will be there doing live art, and those in attendance will have a chance to win one of the two Mega Munnys Scribe will be painting over the weekend. If that's not motivation enough to go, you'll also be able to make your own Munnyworld customs and there will be snacks.

DGPH signing at Kidrobot New York (118 Prince St., Soho, Manhattan) — 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern

Meanwhile, on the East Coast, Argentina's DGPH will be at Kidrobot New York for a signing session and release of three new, limited-edition 8.5-inch-by-11-inch prints. By limited-edition, there's only 5 of each. You'll also be able to enter a raffle for a one-off custom vinyl figure from DGPH.

Misty Fog's Combat Rock — Giant Robot 2 (2062 Sawtelle Blvd., Los Angeles) — 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. Pacific

Fans of Le Merde and Gargamel should listen up: Giant Robot 2 is playing host to a new exhibition this weekend that runs through Oct. 24, featuring works from Le Merde and Gargamel's Kiyoka Ikeda. Paintings and illustrations are part of the event, but there's plenty of custom kaiju and sofubi to go around, too! Le Merde will be there in person for the opening.

Sunday, Sept. 30:

Kidrobot Boulder's Super Official Opening — 1468 Pearl St., Boulder, Colo. (in Pearl Street Mall) — 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Mountain

Same as on Saturday. Just another chance to check everything out!

Wednesday, Oct. 3:

Johnny Cupcakes Coffin Tour 2012 — Rivet Gallery (1200 N. High St., Columbus, Ohio) — 8 p.m. Eastern

The Johnny Cupcakes Coffin Tour 2012 comes to Rivet, bringing along T-shirts and more Johnny Cupcakes stuff. It's a one-night-only pop-up shop, so if you want to go ... you probably should.

There's plenty more stops as well; check the list on Johnny Cupcakes' Facebook page for all the details!
