Habbo Stars is a furniture range that was released onto the hotel in conjunction with the international Habbo Stars talent campaign, run for two weeks in November 2012.
As well as the furniture line, which is still available in Builders Club today, new Official Rooms, Effects and 13 Badges were added. For the first time, you could also buy the upgraded user-owned Bots from the catalogue.
Some items were only released in the original campaign, and have not been added subsequently to the Builders Club catalogue.
The Backstage Passes that users received daily could be exchanged at a new version of the Ecotron, the Prize Matic.
For the first time, you could now purchase bots from the catalogue: a Casual Bot (previously Robbie) and a Waiter/Serving Bot.
During the Habbo Stars campaign, Diamonds returned as a special currency, and could be exchanged for Coins, or spent on the new Diamond Rares. The podium was 25 credits and 12 diamonds while the Uplink station was 50 credits and 25 diamonds.
Each item also gave the user a badge when purchased.

More SFX was also added to the catalogue during the Habbo Stars Campaign.
Based on the Ecotron, the Prize Matic was a new section of the catalogue released for the Habbo Stars event. Users could gain a backstage pass just by entering the official Backstage Room created for the event.
Users could then exchange three Backstage Passes in the machine for either a:
- Stage Smoke Machine (rare)
- Dance Steps (most common)
- Black Star Stage (common)
Habbo Stars was primarily a talent competition for players across any hotel internationally. It was split into four categories: Dance, Voice, Fashion and Room Building.
Bot-Band Room Competition
The Bot Band competition was a building competition where users had to make a room for a bot to perform in. The only rules were it had to contain a Drum SFX, a Mars Walk and a Black Stage Piece.
The competition gave out badges for participating, top 100 and top 10, but it was changed in late November as it was discovered there was a glitch where users could enter without having the required furni. The badge was changed to a troll image with the code 'GLITCH' and it was re-run.
The re-run competition gave users one of the following badges (again for participation, top 100 and top 10).
The winners of the competition in the UK were:
The Bloopers Video Competition asked users to create a song and video it - then upload the funny bits (mistakes) as a blooper video to YouTube. The winners were picked by the number of Likes on YouTube (after being reviewed by Habbo Staff).
The winners won a trophy from Puffin and a badge.
To win the Fame competition, Habbos had to receive as many respects from other users on the hotel. There was a badge for everyone who participated, the top 100 most-respected and top 10 most-respected.
The winners (excluding banned users as of January 2018) were:
