CODE STRING OPENS GATEWAY TO LEGO UNIVERSE!

Rip between our universe and the minifigs' dimension discovered
Entering the code string into the super computer had explosive results in both our lab and in the universe. We seem to have caused a rip in the fabric of space, opening a gateway between our dimension and the LEGO Universe. Through this gateway, a great stream of information is flowing into our world. With our equipment down we cannot handle such large amounts of data. Thankfully LEGO has agreed to host the information on LEGOUniverse.com.
Go there to take part in the next chapter of this amazing story!
