Reviewing Amiibo, not as toys, but as in-game content. 3 games, functionality, and (potential) future use are factored in.
Amiibo are currently useless and boring. I like them for their collector's value but as already stated in the article, as DLC, they're a ripoff. Bedt to buy them for fun and just get DLC and general functionality as a bonus. No hardcore SSB player will get any better from Amiibo, just arguably worse if you play with them more than people. I'm sure though that most Amiibo will eventually break even with their cost as DLC so I wouldn't worry with that frame of mind.
