I think one of the best parts about this set is the fact even some of the same numbered cards are different from each other As you can see in the picture above, both cards have the same picture on them and if you were to turn them over, they would say the same quote as well. What's the diff? On the second card you can see a line effect which looks almost like a tech pattern as you would see Tony use while designing.
Not only does this set let you bring home scenes from the movie, it could let you bring home pieces of it. Picture above are the two 'Heroic Threads' cards that came in the box set. These two cards include pieces of costumes worn by Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark), Gwyneth Paltrow (Pepper Potts), Don Cheadle (Colonel James Rhodes) and Jon Favreau (Happy Hogan). The best part about these cards is the fact you can tell which scene they are from, so you can watch the film and go 'Hey! I have a piece of that moment!'.
While opening the packs of cards from this box set, I found one more collectible card (Seen above). This is the cover of the July 1992, issue #282 of IRON MAN Vol #1. This was the issue we first met the War Machine armor. What else is special about this card? It is signed by the Writer and Penciler of the issue, Len Kaminski and Kevin Hopgood. This is one of many Celebrity Autographs you could find in a single pack of Upper Deck Iron Man 3 Trading Cards.
You know how I put the question at the top of this review? 'Do they rock as much as the movie does?'. Well, the meaning behind that question is do they bring out the spirit for Iron Man fans? Do they tell a story with each picture? Also are they as cool as seeing the scenes clear on the big screen? Yes!! 5 stars to the print team on these cards for making them look High-Def!
If you ask me, which if you are reading this you did! I would tell you to go find these at your local trading card stores and pick up a pack today! Don't forget there is still time to go see Iron Man 3 in theaters!
