Today I'm offering a cool piece of movie memorabilia from the 1979 movie "Meteor" directed by Ronald Neame, who also directed the adventure movie, The Poseidon Adventure. Besides movie posters and a full size Meteor pin-ball machine memorabilia I think this Meteor Trash Can is by far the coolest.
The trash can was made by the Cheineo Company and was copyrighted in 1979 by American International Pictures, Inc., All rights reserved. Trademark of American International Pictures, Inc.
The graphics on the outside of the can are fantastic. In the movie scientists discover that a meteor a half mile across is on course to strike earth. So they send a group of missiles to destroy the meteor but after hitting the meteor a piece brakes off and is on its way to crash into earth.
On each side of the tin it reads Meteor in bold yellow letters. The front and back graphics are the same. It shows 10 missiles on their way to blow up the meteor while other smaller meteors are seen striking earth. The entire inside is filled with a background of stars, the planet earth and meteors flying through space.
On the bottoms of the can it reads, “Cheinco, Made in USA”.
**Condition: The outside of the trash can is in very good condition, clean and bright. The inside walls of the trash can are in very good condition, clean and bright. The inside bottom is in fair condition. *Outside: There are light surface scratches, some small patches of stickiness is on the bottom, a little of the gold paint on the bottom is scratched off, and the rim around the bottom has some surface wear. *Inside Walls: There is light surface wear. *Inside Bottom: There is moderate wear and rusting.
If you’re looking for a special gift for your son or daughter that loves anything that has to do with Sci-Fi movies, then I'm sure they'll love having the "Meteor Trash Can" in their bedroom.
