Is Bossk really that tough?

Somedays George Lucas and his band of marketing people can piss me off.
"A towering reptilian humanoid and skilled predator, Bossk is one of the galaxy's most elite and fearsome bounty hunters. After the Battle of Hoth, Bossk was hired by Darth Vader to track down the Millennium Falcon and her Rebel crew. Bossk is sculpted on a base with a blaster rifle."
I mean - really - IS BOSSK really one of the best bounty hunters? That shot of him in ESB is it - and he didn't even come close to snagging solo. You may argue that in the end - Vader hired Fett escusively - I doubt it. If I was Vader I would have hedged my bets. My point...Bossk is just a bounty hunter until I find out otherwise AND usually no the discount rack at Toys 'R Us.
