I don't know any of you, and you obviously don't know me but yes I cracked the Lego code for series 3 and in my angst and excitement to be the first in the world I probably handled it the wrong way and I wanted to apologize to all of you for that. I don't care about anyone here actually buying it, I just wanted people to see what I did, and didn't expect it to spin that way but I guess it's too late for that. I don't want to be a jerk to the people here because I actually have a great respect for many of them and will share the premise of the code to you (see below). I love this website and what it offers and have been an honest contributor thus far and want to continue doing so which is why I'm reaching out to all of you. I can assure you I have indeed cracked it, and would love the notoriety across the Lego forums but please understand that after loosing my corporate job to the economy, selling Legos here and there is one of my only sources of income right now and I would ask that you don't judge me. I'm a huge Lego fan, and a solid contributor here on a regular basis but I wanted to send you this because despite my user name, I'm not 'that guy' all the time.
Deciphering the code is based on a series of minuscule raised bumps embedded in the heat sealing band at the bottom. They are near impossible to see in most situations but once you match up several packs you will see the pattern. It is 100% accurate despite some quirks such as how the gorilla is coded and the accuracy with with you need to have between a few of them as well as not all of them having as deep a dot as others. The Indian Chief and Samurai are among the toughest to code.
And they said it couldn't be done
