The lack of merchandise for STID is pretty wild.
If you recall, the same thing happened with ST II. The action figures for TMP failed to excite enough collectors in December 1979, and Marvel's tie-in comic was cancelled before the sequel film was released. We didn't see more ST action figures till ST III (and then only Kirk, Spock, Scott and Kruge w/pet), and we didn't get a comic adaptation for ST II until the IDW one - in 2009!

The upcoming Kre-O figures are the tie-in toy line for this film, and may well catch on. Many prime universe waves will follow.
