Very impressive history of classic toy production.  Imcluding of course our much beloved Hamilton's Invaders and all the cool Monkey Division Jungle Warfare stuff!

This Dick Tracy Wrist Radio was a drool worthy item to a kid in 1956 and is still a drool worthy item to Dick Tracy fans of any age!

Bigbud has some awesome and amazing Remco items:

Here is some serious firepower! This is the 1961 Remco B 52 Ball Turret. Runs on 4 D batteries. I do believe this is the first time it has been out of the box. 53 years before seeing daylight...that's nuts! Very detailed toy. Has lots of dials and pointers...the twin machine gun barrels swivel.....red belt of bullets feels through the gun as you press the trigger....has oxygen and communication masks....does everything but fly!

Wow! Just finding pictures of all those toys from the fifties to the seventies in that type of great condition is amazing in and of itself! I wish I had many/most of them.

I didn't know B-52s had turret guns?

Tail gun turrets lasted in B-52s until 1992:

Last Tail Gunner Retires - TheDrive

I miss them dearly. Just as every freight train should have a caboose, every bomber should have a tail gunner.

Sadly Photobucket has conspired to obscure the photos of Bigbud's B-52 Ball Turret Gun that Remco released in 1961. Here are some additional pictures of this fabulous Remco Gun I just lifted off the net:
