I believe that's more BMW/Magna Steyr influence just like the BMW emblem with their 3D round dome. The FT-1 and even the GR Supra have traditional Toyota emblems. I hear you though. The 3D domed emblems are confirming to most car manufacturers as most market trends tend to do. The Europeans have been doing it for decades (BMW, Lamborghini, Saab, Fiat) but after the change of roles, esp with the German segment, it's starting to port over to the Asian segment, KIA. My thing is that, Toyota and even Lexus have offered fun little details to indicated this product is a little more sporty and special then the rest of the bunch; brushed aluminum, titanium, gun metal gray, black pearl for their emblems.
