Mr Blobby’s new Pickup

Driving home yesterday I saw several new Toyota Land Cruiser 70 pickups go by. What have Toyota’s designers done to what was such a cool looking vehicle?
Gone are the angular, tough looking lines that made it look like the tough, rugged thing it’s supposed to be. In comes the blobby, squidgy look that makes it look like a character-less Toyota wannabe from less renowned manufacturers. It seems to be suffering the same deformities as the new Land Cruiser. Yuck.
These pics give you an idea of how the front styling has been ‘softened’.
Old, craggy, character –

New, soft, squishy –

They should get Mr Blobby to front the advertising campaign.
