Unicron Trilogy pack-in comics

Acronyms and abbreviations are fun. That, or these lines don't deserve quite enough respect for full names.
Robots In Disguise, Armada, Energon, Cybertron - there, that's their names, happy now???

They are low-grade pack-in filler with so little interest in maintaining a level of quality that they tri-lingo the word balloons. They are less important to the purchase than the instructions.

The writing suffered for only having 8 pages to work with. But, for a pack-in, it was better than one would expect. The art was standard for the time. Dreamwave did not cheap out on it, despite the fact that they could have.

The tri-lingual stuff was by Hasbro mandate. It carried over to the packaging as well, which was doubly annoying since it meant tech specs had to go. If nothing else, the pack-in comics gave a little personality to the characters for kids who otherwise would have no clue who these characters were. And as Dom says, at 8 pages there's not much room for anything but basic storytelling.

I don't know what you're talking about. I distinctly remember Hot Shot's inimitable motto:
"Well, let's go!"
Also I believe he had a strength level of "5 and older".
