I was looking at a picture of a Silver Age Lex Luthor action figure, from a line that often uses things from the real stories (like Brainiac's monkey), and I was wondering if anyone could tell me about Luthor's headwear of the box he is holding?

But what it is is a mental projector. Luthor can load a disk into it to record memories to it and conversely, use it to replay memories. So basically, he was doing the macguffin of the 90's movie "Strange Days" back in 1959!

The gun I know comes from Action Comics#257, which was able to give people super-powers. Here's a review of the Luthor figure that shows off a few panels of the items in question.
