Well, I opened it up without much success, and took some pictures of the process: At first I tried pushing/prying the light grey tabs away from the dark gray "bottom", but those weren't budging So plan B: wedge it apart: It was opening, but I was also distorting the plastic in the process - perhaps if I had a hot air station or something, I could have ...

Pure eucalyptus oil works excellent, won't damage your minifigs, (and it smells good too!). You can get it in small bottles at health-food stores, pharmacies, and Asian stores. You don't need much, so a small bottle can last you a long time. Just pour a little of the oil on a piece of cotton or soft towel, and rub over the printed area you want to remove. ...

First of all, if you are serious about this business, go to an IP lawyer who can take this up for you and give you a much more confident answer than the bunch of us LEGO fans can :) Second, isn't it funny that all links I try to get to LEGO's FUP result in a 503 Service not available error?

The only significant ...

The motor used in Hobby Trains is the 9V train motor. This motor is externally identical to the new Power Functions train motor, so you should be able to replace one with the other. That said, the problem with Power Functions is that where in 9V it was enough to have the train motor mounted on the train, in PF you will also need to provide an IR receiver ...

There are a few options, however many of them either use standard parts, or require minimum order quantities (Minifigures.com for example requires a minimum run of 50). A couple of options for bespoke, one-offs seem to be: minifigs.me - who offer both a Custom Torso option and a Custom Complete Minifigure with printing on the legs and head as well. ...

If I understood your question correctly, you wish to build a velociraptor yourself, from basic bricks (as opposed to the single functional unit that LEGO introduced as part of the Jurassic World line). In this case I have no idea what search did you do, but just doing a Google search for "lego velociraptor" results in several models of varying proportions ...
