Since then LEGO has continued to up its game, and we've had more excellent figures, including the Elite Clone Trooper in this year's battle pack.
Now, with the release of 9496 Desert Skiff, LEGO has improved Boba, as you can see by comparing the new Boba with the old version, right. The helmet and torso are identical, as far as I can tell, but the main criticism of the old one -- that the legs weren't printed -- has been addressed. His blaster looks more convincing too.
Surely then, this has to be the best minifig ever? Can they get any better?
I think I'll crack open 9499 Gungan Sub next to see if Queen Amidala, who must take the prize for the most anticipated fig ever, surpasses it...
