Since the blaster's full name is quite a mouthful, I'll be referring to it as just the Stormtrooper Deluxe Blaster, or even just the Deluxe Blaster.

Let's look at the main blaster first.
Here's the stock on an EAT, it's ridiculously, hilariously and pretty much unusably short.
Finally for performance.
Range wise the Deluxe Blaster is decent by Aussie standards, it achieves 11-12m true flat ranges on average. Not exceptional, but it is on the upper end of the blasters we get. Since the same blaster is released in all regions, for those of you with orange triggers, the Deluxe Blaster will be weaker than most of your blasters.
Accuracy is reasonable, being slightly better than average. Firing at my usual doorway at ~8m range, almost all darts fly through without issue, though they still tend to spread out. Standard Elite dart veering can also occur.
Rate of Fire is pretty good, like with other pump action slam fire clip (mag) system blasters I can get 5-6 darts per second. The only blasters beating this are air powered full autos, overhauled Rapidstrikes and flywheeler semi autos with battery upgrades.
Since the Stormtrooper Deluxe Blaster is basically just a retooled Rampage, it performs much the same function. It's a pretty solid all round pump action blaster. It's relatively easy to use, sufficiently powerful (compared to grey trigger blasters), acceptably accurate and relatively fast firing. It might be a little small for your own personal preference, but for a stock out-of-box pump action blaster it's pretty good.
Unfortunately for the Deluxe Blaster, it retails for an obnoxiously high price. The lowest non-sale price you can find it for is 70AUD at BigW. The next cheapest is 80AUD at ToysRUs, then 90AUD at Myer. Despite how good a blaster it is (and looks), I cannot recommend the Deluxe Blaster for its retail price. The maximum I would pay is about 60AUD (which is what I paid for mine), and ignoring Star Wars branding I expect it would have retailed at no more than 50AUD. Unless you're a die hard Star Wars fan, I'd say either wait for a substantial discount or try and find a Rampage/EAT instead.
Pros: Decently powerful and accurate, slam-fire is smooth allowing for fairly high ROF, reliable, looks awesome and is reasonably faithful to the F-11D, very short for good close quarters maneuverability
Cons: Obnoxiously high price, stock is short, even more so on other blasters, side magwell can be somewhat awkward, perhaps a little too small and could have benefitted from being larger for comfort
Rate of Fire: 4.5/5
Value for Money: 2.5/5
Personal Rating: 4.5/5 - I love Star Wars, and having a good looking Star Wars blaster that is also quite a good blaster makes me very happy. Even better, it's effectively a mini Rampage which can be easily modded into a very effective superstock blaster.
