GDE is short for Guerre des Etoiles (French) which translated is Star Wars. It's an abbreviated term that collectors use.

Nice.  I'm assuming you're keeping it boxed, but it would make a nice loose ship for display.

My Vintage Vader's TIE is well played with and I cannot get the electronics to work.

The ship itself is beaten up pretty badly (ripped wing stickers and very faded), so I'm not sure I'll be displaying it, but I really only purchased this for the box.  The seller made it clear the ship was pretty rough.

However, Vader's TIE is one of favourite ships, so there's no doubt I'll grab a cleaner loose one to display, someday.

Now I just need a GDE carded Vader to show beside it.  That's my holy grail of Canadian collecting.  ;)
