It would be nice if they could stream more of the UC Gundam too.

The series include Mobile Suit Gundam, Mobile Suit Gundam Wing, Mobile Suit Gundam Seed, Mobile Suit Gundam 00, and Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans.

Each of which aired in the US on Toonami, which is now a corporate sibling of Crunchyroll (under parent company AT&T). This would probably seem like a pretty random collection of shows otherwise, right?

It's not really that random. Excluding G Gundam being MIA, those are all the non-UC/SD series that have ran on U.S. TV. Though, Gundam 00 aired on Syfy and not Cartoon Network.

They are also the key series Sunrise has placed front-and-center on various streaming outlets. Moreover, they happen to be among the most mainstream-friendly in the franchise, each for their own specific reasons:

MSG/Origin: the first one (with still-iconic cache at hand) + a recent shiny retelling
Wing: the first overseas offering and likely still their biggest success beyond Japan
SEED: likely their second-biggest success & helped found a new generation of fans
00: first HD Gundam series and celebrating its 10th anniversary (and still easy on the eyes)
IBO: one of their very most recent and, similar to 00, made with an international audience in mind, and managed a good following, too
