    Hey, all!
    As I'm quite obsessed with Peter Hyams' 1981 movie "Outland", I wanted to have what I perceive to be a beer can from that film. There is
    one scene in which Sgt. Montone (James B. Sikking) helps himself to a drink. I always assumed it was beer for some reason, though it
    might as well be some sort of coke or coffee thing.

    Anyway, it's a can I wanted to have.

    So, this is what I have come up with. Almost everything about it is guesswork, of course, as I only had some blu-ray screenshots to go
    on. Unfortunately, the only customizable beer cans I have found here in Germany are 250 ml or 8.45 oz., which is rather small, but still
    better than nothing. So I adjusted the label size to the required 1710x1290, and this is it:

    I hope you like it. I'm quite happy with the outcome, and I had some fun doing the health and safety warnings on the back. They read:

    WARNING: (1) CONSUMPTION OF ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES IMPAIRS YOUR ABILITY TO USE MACHINERY, AND MAY CAUSE
    HEALTH PROBLEMS.
    (2) CON-AM EMPLOYEES ARE OBLIGATED UNDER SECTION B2 OF THE STANDARD CONTRACT TO PROVIDE CAPABILITY TO
    FULFILL THEIR CONTRACTUAL DUTY. INFRINGEMENT OF SAID OBLIGATION WILL RESULT IN THE LOSS OF ENTITLEMENT
    TO ANY COMPENSATION IN CASE OF HEALTH PROBLEMS OR INJURY. ACT RESPONSIBLY.
    (3) ACCORDING TO THE SURGEON GENERAL, WOMEN SHOULD NOT DRINK ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES DURING PREGNANCY
    BECAUSE OF THE RISK OF BIRTH DEFECTS.

    In case anybody is interested, I'd be happy to adjust the label format to any size you require. Just drop me a note.

    Cheers!

    Update:

    Nearly forgot this: I made a version of the "League of Industrial Nations" logo to incorporate it in b/w into the label.
    Maybe you find it useful:

    Update: Since I've only now figured out how to do transparent backgrounds for PNGs, I've uploaded a better League logo version.

    It just occurred to me that the screen used League logo actually looks like this:

    So, I went over my PNG again to get as close as possible.

    Again, here's the original size file:

    Cheers!
