I totally agree
furthermore, the point of Lego is (I think) to "use everithing you can, combine it so when somebody else is looking at your MOc, he/she can reckognise what you intended to build
I am for big parts, and I usually use them all, and with small ones and slopes and archs, I make them interesting
The problem with this
piece is that it is not realistically useable enough for me. But I agree that Burps and Lurps can be useful.
I must desagree, I will take a picture of my new castle, I just love combining those parts for center towers, I have about 100 of them, and I always stay short of them
these parts also give hight to my castles, or are great for some lonely high towers that are only small part of biger MOC
