Amiibo Invade Skylanders

During Nintendo's E3 Digital Event the folks over at Activision announced that special transforming amiibo will be making their way to Skylanders.

These figures will work within the Skylanders franchise. Both a Donkey Kong and Bowser character were announced.

What do you think of this announcement? Does amiibo support for Skylanders have you excited to give Activision's popular toys-to-life series a chance?
