Either Wookiee fits the gunner seat well.
I love this ship myself... First, it meets my criteria of being to-scale... It's one of the rare times Hasbro went balls to the wall and sculpted a full-scale vehicle for the figure line.
Second, this thing is beefed up in detail. LOTS sculpted into it, right down to engine detailing galore.
I have one gripe, the figure. Hasbro's short-changed anyone who bought any vehicle with a pack-in, and the Wookiee Copter is no different. Shorting the articulation on the pack-ins is doing the end-product no favors. A nice neutral Wookiee would've been great.
I'm not talking a removable ammo harness even, or "Super articulated" figure. Some nice knee articulation to get him "crouched", and maybe some swiveling elbows. This figure would have been good enough for carding even then, just painted differently. He's got a rockin' paintjob though.
Anyway, I have a Preview Wookiee (still the best WOokiee ever short of VOTC Chewie) I got for $2 at the local toy show in the rear seat, manning the strafing gun. The gun lacks some detail but I've got it so the Wookiee's aiming it to the left and can imagine the copter banking and droids flying to pieces just like in ROTS.
The vehicle's "action feature" for flying is even inventive, attractive, and functional. This is probably one of the best vehicles Hasbro's put out in a long time and for a REALLy good price. $15's not bad at all, even with the figure being lackluster.
