Even though I somehow got Ness, Robin, and Lucina, I think this wave has been a disaster so far. Nintendo really needs to make a lot more before the wave 4 launch.

Amiibo are just a fad.Soon the novelty will wear off.You might as well sell the ones you aren't gonna use and try to make some money back.

The novelty isn't why they sell, though.
It's not just because they're highly collectable, it's also because they work across a much wider assortment of titles to continue adding to the value of their purchase.
Nintendo is definitely making a mistake by not increasing stock, though, but of Nintendo keeps putting out new Amiibo's for other games, they won't see a drop in sales of them for a long time.
I'm personally hoping that they'll make some Amiibo's of the mechs in Xenoblade Chronicles X, to really capitalize on their overwhelming sales success as a form of advertisement for the game itself.

As soon as I heard Amiibo trading cards were gunna be a thing I pretty much laughed for several minutes

Amiibo are gradually growing on me. Never had a problem with them but they're really cool and being handled okay. They just need more variety. Only SSB, Splatoon and Super Mario series are covered AFAIK. Sad Golden Sun, Pushmo, ect don't have anything.

The Shulk Amiibo is currently confirmed to work with Xenoblade Chronicles 3D and will have an unspecified function in Xenoblade X.
