Iron Man as a franchise certainly is at its peak with the third movie.

Since the first Iron Man movie, Tony Stark has created six Iron Man suits. Mark VII appeared in The Avengers. In Iron Man 3, there are 42 models.

All 42 Iron Man armor suits are featured in the book. They are lined up side by side on a gatefold page from Mark 1 to Mark 42. The Iron Legion, they are called. This is probably the only place you can see all the suits.

The suits that appear more prominently in the movie are given more pages accordingly. They are namely, War Machine, Iron Patriot, Mark 15 Sneaky, Mark 16 Nightclub, Mark 17 Heartbreaker, Mark 25 Thumper, Mark 33 Silver Centurion, Mark 35 Snapper, Mark 37 Hammerhead, Mark 38 Igor, Mark 39 Gemini, Mark 41 Bones and of course Mark XLII (that's 42). Those that are briefly or not shown in the book are just on that gatefold page.

Overall, there are more suits than in artbook one and two. Besides the suits, there are also concept art for the characters, scenes, locations (not much), and storyboards.

The characters are the Mandarin, Aldrich Killian and his Extremis gang. You won't get to see Pepper Potts in the way as shown in the movie and that's a shame. Locations include Tony's Malibu mansion and workshop, Rosehill town, Mandarin's Miami mansion and the seaport. There are quite a few storyboard sequences, about 20 over pages.

The art is fantastic, right from the start of the slipcase cover to the end of the 280-page hardcover. Fans who geek out over the film can continue to geek out with this artbook.

Highly recommended.

I'm a big Iron Man fan, and I thoroughly enjoyed the third movie in the franchise. This artbook covers all the concept art and designs I could hope for, with a particular emphasis on Tony's new suits. Some highlights:

- A foldout poster of all 42 Iron Man suits (the Iron Legion) with the nicknames Tony gave them, such as "Nightclub", "Romeo", and "Hot Rod". Designs range from classic red and gold to streamlined black stealth suit to a beautiful silver-white deep-space suit, which was inspired by NASA shuttles. There is an entire chapter devoted just to concept art of the suits and description of their special functions.

- Concept art of the Mandarin, including a detailed rendition of his cape (which is surprisingly intricate!) and two full pages devoted just to his rings. You can see the jewels and etchings on each of them.

- Sketches of Tony's homemade weapons! There's a super 77 flame thrower, a saw blade thrower, and many others. Apparently, the propmaster actually based some of the designs on real, functional weapons people have made.

- Storyboards of the helicopter gunship attack on Tony's mansion and the sequence where Iron Man saves all the people who get blasted out of the airplane.

- Finally, my favorite part is at the end: the artists drew a bunch of cartoons depicting creative ways each of Tony's suits kill off Extremis soldiers in the final seaport battle. Some of them are really funny, like when the deep-space suit sticks a jet pack on an Extremis dude and blasts him into space, or the black suit splits into pieces to "divide and conquer" an army of Extremis.

Definitely a worthwhile purchase for a fan, or anyone interested in all the Iron Man suits that you saw in the film! I have a huge respect for the artists, costume designers, and prop people who made sure every little detail of the movie came to life. (Seriously, they took a month to do all the illustrations for the Mandarin's rings!)

From the first Iron Man art book to the third one. They just keep getting more amazing. The book is so beautifully put together. THIS AND THE FIRST 2 ARE A MUST FOR IRON MAN FANS! Really this book from cover to cover has been made with incredible craftsmanship.

Everything is as good as other Marvel Art Books (I have all of them)!
The only thing they missed is the lack of the photos for each armors and description. If they can only show more prototype designs and different angles for each armor suits with explanation would make this book the perfect art book to buy...

There isn't a whole lot that separates this art book from the art books for Iron Man and Iron Man 2. There's a lot of concept art for the set pieces, such as destruction of Stark's home, and new characters like Mandarin and Aldrich Killian. That's why I only gave four stars - after 2 previous excellent books, it's tough to make this one a must-have purchase for anyone but collectors. The focus is his armor, and there's only so many sketches of the same armor with slight design modifications you can see before it becomes boring.

That said, what makes this book worthwhile (at least for fans) is the gallery of the Iron Legion. Every suit is represented in order in a beautiful fold out chart. While it's short on details for most of them, it is still great to see them all singled out. There is an illustration of each, along with the mark number and "nickname". Several of the suits do get more information, mainly those "featured" in the film. This is especially true for the Mark 43 prehensile suit he wears through most of the action. It's so different, at least in functionality if not look, that the concepts art and creator input are actually interesting.

Overall, this is another high quality art book with great production values, glorious imagery and a nice slipcase. Recommended.
