There has been lots of talk about the peg holes in the Brave and Bold line. Some of us like them. Some do not. In my opinion, the two Metal Men showcase the worst and best use of this feature in the line.
Your typical basic figure comes with one plug in accessory that makes sense with the character. Gold comes with zero. None. That’s right, not a single thing to plug into those peg holes. They are useless. Instead, he comes with a starfish.
The typical deluxe figure comes with multiple accessories. Iron comes with 4 accessories.
Here are a few.
Here they are combined to make the wrench pictured in the packaging.
Here is the wrench assembly attached Iron’s back.
Random configuration attached to Iron.
Another random arrangement of the parts.
By combining these attachments in different ways, you could think of it as getting a variety of toys instead of just one.
At this point, Iron is definitely my favorite single packaged character in this line.

Back to Gold. What to do with him. Well, as Doc Magnus says, he is a ‘precious metal’. So maybe he could use himself as collateral to buy some stuff. We played around with some other Brave and Bold pieces and came up with this. Using your imagination, this construct could be all six Metal Men. Gold, Iron, Tin, Platinum, Mercury, and Lead.
The more you have, the more fun it gets. I’ll be showing more stuff in future blogs.

The remaining question, is what to do with that starfish. Wait a minute. Where did it go? It was here. I just saw it a minute ago. Things don’t move by themselves do they?
Did you see that?
To be continued …
