This came in this morning, a month earlier than expected. Tama Star Walnut in Vintage Sea Blue.
16”x22”, 7”x10”, 8”x12”, 14”x14” and 16”x16”.
I ordered a second bass drum today as well. They sound great right out of the box, especially the bass drum. Super Happy with these drums and Tama for delivering a month before ETA. From time of order to delivery was 5 months.

Wow! That's truly remarkable. I got to play a Tama Star Walnut kit for a while and it was amazing. I love that finish and think you've done extraordinarily well. What's the second bass drum you ordered?

Thank You all for the Kind Words. Just waiting for the Dark Energy MRK l 21” ride to come in, so set up won’t be fully complete until it does. The second bass drum I ordered is the same, 16”x22”. And I’m going to order a rack tomorrow as well.

You comment brought me the question I've been asking myself as soon as the Star Drums kit was released: They said they worked a lot on the hardware to increase and improve the resonance of all the Toms with new stands etc.... So, question: is a rack won't do the opposite? Like killing their efforts to maximize the resonance?
I love a rack because it helps me to put a lot of Cymbals on a very small area but what IF the greatness of their tone/sound is not the same without their stands?

The resonance is in the Tom Mounting System, a rack or non-Star Stands won’t effect the tone IMHO. I only have the Star Cymbal stands (which are great) because a friend who had them wanted the Roadpro Stands I had initially bought. So we traded and I threw in some cash. Only one Cymbal Stand I have is new.

What a beautiful finish! I love it!
What snare is that? Looks like the kapur snare. I have a Pearl kapur snare and that wood is amazing for snares

I have never played a Tama-add it to my bucket list. They sound awesome though and I really like the color --goes with my eyes.

I'd be inclined to order a double tom holder and stick with stands or stealth racks when used as a double bass drum set up.
