During the search for novel topological insulators, new fully and partially substituted pseudo one-dimensional compounds were discovered. Extensive investigations into the synthetic pathway via differential scanning calorimetry lead to the two subiodides of the type Bi$_2$[PtBi$_6$I$_{12}$]$_3$ being isolated and synthesized independently. The six weak inter-cluster bridges between the strands, in combination with the strong spin-orbit coupling, could lead to interesting non-trivial topology.
