A Collector Cabinet is a feature you can use to convert your existing Habbo furni into a type of Habbo Collectible called a Relic.
Just like other collectibles, Relics can be bought and sold freely for Ether (ETH) on Immutable, and in most cases they can be used in all ten hotels we operate instead of just the one they originated from.
What you need to use your Collector Cabinet
To use your Collector Cabinet, you need the following:
- A MetaMask wallet that is connected to Immutable or a Collector Wallet.
- At least one Curator Stamp – the rarer and more expensive furni will need multiple stamps. You can get a Curator Stamp with Silver from the Collector Cabinet window, or you can buy them with Emeralds from the Collectibles Shop.
- A furni that has been whitelisted / added to the Collector Cabinet (see below for more information about which furni can be converted to Relics using Collector Cabinets).
Curator Stamps are required to convert your furni to Relics.
When we release Collector Cabinets fully, you’ll also be able to convert stamps you own into collectibles that can be sold on the Immutable Marketplace.
Which furni can become Relics
After the launch of Collector Cabinets, we’ll add more furni to them each month, essentially whitelisting more and more furni on a monthly basis.
After furni has been available in Collector Cabinets for a while, we’ll rotate them out. Note that all furni we rotate out will almost certainly be added back in the future.
We’re adding furni to Collector Cabinets gradually like this for two main reasons:
- It’ll allow us to keep the feature fun and interesting. For example, we can run themed “seasons” that run alongside existing Habbo campaigns and events.
- Doing things in this way also helps us to mitigate any adverse effects on the nine hotel’s trading economies. Slowly but surely rather than all at once.
How to use your Collector Cabinet
When you open your Collector Cabinet from the Collectors Guild, you’ll see furni that are currently convertible to Relics. If you own one of the furni on display, a number will be visible underneath. This indicates how many you have in your inventory.
Hotel locked Relics
In the most extreme cases where item supply and average marketplace prices differ between hotels, we have a “hotel lock” feature to use. When enabled, this feature prevents that particular type of Relic being used on any other hotel apart from Habbo X and the hotel it originated from. However, it’s important that the community understands we would only use this locking feature in extreme circumstances, and on a case by case basis.
A good example of a type of furni that would always be locked are LTDs.
What happens to your furni once it becomes a relic
In most cases, you’ll be able to use any Relics you collect in all ten of the hotels we operate. You can also sell any Relics you own for ETH – a widely used cryptocurrency – on Immutable’s marketplace.
Once your furni has been converted to a Relic, it’s essentially removed from your account and our databases, and is permanently moved to the Immutable blockchain like all of our other furni collectibles.
❗️ IMPORTANT: you CANNOT reverse this process. Once a furni is a Relic, it’s a Relic forever.
Transferring Collectibles to your MetaMask wallet
If you convert items to Relics and put them in your Collector Wallet, you can't sell them on Immutable's Marketplace. To sell them there, they must be in your MetaMask wallet. To ensure you can always sell your Relics on the Immutable Marketplace, we've added a transfer feature:
For now, this feature is free to use, but we will likely add a small fee to it in the future.
Why have you called these collectibles “Relics”?
We felt that it was important to differentiate them from other collectible items in our ecosystem, and in the future we plan to present them slightly differently in inventories to make them stand out.
There are also other features related to Habbo Collectibles, some of which we discussed in our long-term vision, that will interface with Relics. For example, we plan to release achievements based on the number of relics you have created.
How else do Relics differ from other collectibles?
For now, the only difference other than the name are the traits they have on Immutable. The traits are slightly different so that in the future our system can recognise them and present them differently in your inventory, for example.
How do I get Curator Stamps?
Stamps will also be available from the Immutable Marketplace if players decide to sell Curator Stamps they buy.
How many Curator Stamps does it cost to convert my furni to a Relic?
This depends on the item. It’ll take multiple Curator Stamps to convert higher-value, rarer items into Relics, but for more common ones it’ll only take one.
Will this feature be available in the Classic client?
We do want to make Collector Cabinets available in the Classic client. However, if it does happen, it’ll happen in the future.
Can I revert any Relics I convert back to normal furni?
No, this is not possible.
It’s very important to understand that the Relic conversion process is permanent, and that once your furni becomes a Relic, you can no longer sell it for credits – you will only be able to sell it for ETH or another supported token on Immutable’s marketplace.
Will I be able to convert other types of Habbo items to Relics in the future?
Yes, we intend to make at least clothing and LTDs available in Collector Cabinets in the future. Only unbound clothing furni will be convertible though.
What will happen to my clothing furni after I convert it to a Relic?
The clothing furni becomes a clothing collectible, hosted on Immutable. You can find your collectible clothing items in the Looks Editor. The original clothing furni is removed from your inventory permanently.
Which furni will you add to Collector Cabinets?
Any furni we’ve released could be added to Collector Cabinets. Each furni we want to add will be analysed on a case by case basis. We will look at both the average Marketplace price and the supply when making the decision to add them.
There are almost certainly furni that we will not add to Collector Cabinets, and there may be some that we add to Collector Cabinets with a hotel lock, which means they can only be used on the hotel they originate from.
Which Relics will you add hotel locks to?
Each furni we add to Collector Cabinets will be approached on a case by case basis, looking at its average Marketplace cost and supply on each of the nine hotels we operate. Hotel locks will only be used in the most extreme cases.
Can you share the full list of future sets?
The list of sets is extremely big and we don’t feel that it’s necessary to share it with the community at this stage, however this may change in the future.
Why did you involve the Community Council when deciding on which Relics should be in which sets?
The Community Council is full of players with in-depth knowledge of furni and Habbo history that we do not currently have on the team. In addition to this, they are all good communicators and work very well with staff, which is almost just as important as specialist knowledge. We could not have done anything mentioned in this article without them.
Involving the wider community in this process is a great idea in theory, but in practice would have been extremely messy and hard to manage. We feel that the Community Council has represented the community well in this case.
How do you decide how many Curator Stamps each Relic requires?
We have a simple, scalable formula that allows us to quickly and fairly assign a Curator Stamp cost to any Relic. In order to avoid market manipulation, and to allow ourselves room to be pragmatic with some special cases, this formula is not something we will make public at this stage.
How many Relics will be released at a time?
There is no set number of Relics we will include in a release. Given how many items we’ve released over the course of Habbo’s lifetime, it’s likely that some releases will be significantly larger than the first ones we put out.
How often will you release a new batch of Relics?
We aim to release a new batch of Relics every month, but this is not guaranteed.
Will I have enough time to mint them all?
You can see how long you have left to mint a specific Relic by opening the Collector Cabinet in the Collectors Guild (do this by opening the “Me” menu, and clicking on the Collector Cabinet option).
