As we sit down for an interview, Tokyo Comic Convention Committee Chairman Mitsuaki Munegumi casually points to a glass case in the center of the room.

"There's actually a real 'Star Wars' lightsaber in there," he says, and reaches over. He pulls out a hilt prop that the Count Dooku character, played by the late Christopher Lee, used in the 2002 film "Star Wars: Episode II — Attack of the Clones." This is only one of many authentic Hollywood props stored in the room, including a Chucky doll from the "Child's Play" horror series and a hydrogen fuel cell that Arnold Schwarzenegger's T-850 character had in its chest in "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines."

"And I think there are a few 'Harry Potter' costumes somewhere in here," he adds with a large grin. Munegumi, 63, is the man behind the upcoming Tokyo Comic Convention (or Tokyo Comic Con), a three-day convention to be held at the Makuhari Messe convention center in Chiba from Dec. 2 to 4. The convention will celebrate a vast array of popular comic book and Hollywood film properties, including the Marvel and DC superhero films, "Star Wars," "The Lord of the Rings" and "Harry Potter."
