    What is a good way to hang up those mosc transformers without damaging them. I'm trying to look for a hook or something of that sort to be strong enough for the weight of the figure, but also does not damage the hook of the card or bend it if that makes sense. I currently have some plastic hooks with adhesive backings, but one is starting to fall off and I don't want some of my exclusive figures damaged. Anyways any tips would be appreciative.

    Nails. i use good old fashioned nails. Odds of them falling out are slim, if you live in a very humid climate you may want to put a strip of electrical tape around the nail so it won't rust.

    I've tried thumbtacks and they just don't seem that reliable just because of how close the card is to the edge of falling off. For nails even if I did put tape on them wouldn't they weight of the figure drag down the card at all?

    Nope not really, I have a few figures hung for years on nails and there is really no noticeable deformation

    What exclusive figures are you referring to? That might help. Most exclusive toys that I can think of are larger and boxed, rather than carded.
