Default Info on Superstar please

I'm looking for any info on the Tama Superstar that just popped up near me. I'm thinking anywhere from '89 to mid 90's. The seller is looking for 500. Thoughts?

That's a newer Superstar kit. From the last 10 years or so. The oldest drum I can see in the photo is what looks to be a Red Badge Tama Swingstar. But the long lugs, those never came on older Superstars. I'm also fairly certain that by 1987 Superstars were no longer in production ( think 86' was the last year ) as Tama had their Artstar lines and were in development of the Starclassic drums.

Thanks! No wonder I couldn't find it in the 80's/90's catalogues. I think she's just a little too young for me
