I'm pleasantly surprised that this book actually comes with a slipcase. The cover art for the slipcase and book are also different from what's shown. The hardcover is very beautiful, smooth matt, and features a painting of Iron Man by Ryan Meinerding, who's still the concept artist for the second movie.

At 224 pages, this book features much more Iron Man designs that the first book, The Art of Iron Man. There's the new Iron Man suit which you can recognise by the triangle RT on the chest, the Suitcase Suit, The War Machine, plenty of drones and Whiplash. There are illustrations, 3D models, screenshots, physical sets.

The Iron Man suit designs are really fantastic. It's more streamline, cooler and just mean at the same time. They are beautifully drawn with lots of details. You can see the different plates, metal shine and even battle damaged suits, which will make you go "Ouch, that must have really hurt." Many of the designs have the high drool factor and deserved to be made into action figures.

If you've watched the trailers, you'll see that Iron Man was surrounded by lots of drones. Well, those drones are also included. There are Army, Navy, Airforce and Marine drones. As if it's not enough, there are Feebles also, which are the mechas designed by other countries. Feebles are really cool because they convey personality of their home countries through the designs. Mecha fans will be delighted.

About a quarter of the book is on the environment and set. And the bulk of that is actually on the Stark Expo, featuring illustrations, miniatures, etc. Right at the back there are some storyboard sequences and more miscellaneous art like the re-designed RT, Stark's cars, labs, and other stuff.

- Black Widow & Nick Fury costume designs
- Storyboards of Stark Expo drone attack sequence
- Stark's Monaco car and racing suit.

*Please see video for detailed photographs from the book [music is from the Iron Man 2 soundtrack].

**I would recommend you purchase the Hardcover Edition of this book. The pages are soaked with colors as well as black backgrounds, so there is a lot of ink. The hardcover editions seem to have thicker pages, but many who own the paperback have complained about thinner pages which causes distortion. Also, the book is quite heavy, and having a hardcover allows you to better control the book while flipping through the pages. So it may be more expensive to purchase the hardcover edition, but I think the increased quality is well worth the extra cost.

If your a fan of the movie, you'll want this. Great book has some really good insight and facts into the special effects of the movie. Very nice design and a top quality finish.

Whiplash armor is actually a physical set and there's an impressive photo showing all the parts separately, like LEGO bricks, but in metal.

This book is as good as or even better than the first art book.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than I hoped it'd be 16 May 2010
By MooVeeLuvr - Published on Amazon.com

If you bought the Art of Iron Man and liked it, you'll definitely want this one. It's even better. The slipcase feature was a surprise and really makes the book a true collector's item. Because of the new characters and suits in the second movie, I enjoyed this book even better. The comprehensive coverage of the designs very much did justice to the great work by all the artists involved. I wish more "Art of " books were this detailed. The one con if there is one is the paper quality. Maybe because of the slipcase costs, they've used a slightly thinner paper stock as compared to the first book. A very minor con. I'd highly recommend this to anyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Iron suit anyone? 6 May 2010
By talos72 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The second book does pack in the artwork as mentioned, but the edition comes in a slipcase versus the hardcover version of the first book (I prefer hardcover to slipcase). Be forewarned, majority of the book is comprised of endless, though technically well executed, variations on different iron suits: suitcase versions, military versions, Warm Machine versions, etc. There are storyboard work along with designs as well. All in all, the book is pretty much as expected: a huge collection of mechanical designs done by Photoshop wizards (with a scattering of 3D models).
5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie art 27 Dec. 2012
By Cerberus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book gives a wonderful glimpse behind the scenes and into the magic of making a special effects wonder like Iron Man 2. I always marvel,no pun intended,at the incredible talent that goes into developing such an entertaining movie. I can't recommend this book enough for comic book fans who love Iron man or just movie lovers who would like to see how some of the scenes were developed and brought to the big screen.
4.0 out of 5 stars Baddass Book ! 6 July 2013
By Syrus54 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am a modeller/engineer by trade. I love shapes and designs, which is why I picked up this book.

So much behind the scenes stuff, and concept art... I just LOVE THIS BOOK.

The only thing it needs: More blue prints of Tonys house & garage.

His HOME is just as interesting as his SUITS are.
