Those of you who buy now are going to kick your own asses when they release a better edition in a couple of months.
I highly, higly doubt that there will any kind of "combined" release in the near future.
Bill Hunt of DigitalBits.com posted a link to an interview today where he says he is in contact with Paramount and working with them for a more optimistic outcome. Rather than paraphrase Mr. Hunt here, everyone should give his insightful interview a good listen. They even mention TrekCore.

In His My2Cents Blog Today, Bill Hunt wrote:
And finally today, I had the pleasure of participating in a 37-minute audio podcast with the Geek League of America’s Adam Moreau the other day. The topic was none other than Paramount’s recent Star Trek Into Darkness Blu-ray debacle, as well as recent trends in the home video industry away from physical media. It was great fun and our discussion was pretty interesting, so give it a listen here and enjoy!

Just to add a brief message from near the end of the interview, Mr. Hunt says what I've been saying:

"The movie industry thinking is we're gonna make the product we're gonna make and you're gonna buy it. So you really have to hold their feet to the fire and say, no, this is the kind of product we want and this is what we want you to deliver to us or we won't buy it." Awesome message. Awesome advocate.

Re: Star Trek Into Darkness Blu-ray Problem

So, the weekly ads for Target and Walmart have come out.

Walmart is selling both Abramsverse films together on Blu-ray for 19.99, which is the same price as the Target exclusive for just STID. They don't say what the Walmart price will be for the STID Blu-ray alone ( though one imagines it's also 19.99 because retail pricing defies logic ). Meanwhile, Walmart's advertised sale price for the DVD is a dollar higher than the preorder price they've had online already.

I'm so confused.

You got to keep an eye out. A short while ago, all three remastered seasons were available for under 80 bucks.

Good to know. I have TOS on DVD, but that's not the remastered version, which I covet. Will definitely hold out for a better price though.

It isn't unreasonable for TOS to cost more. The 6 movie set has 6 discs. The TOS set has ~18, plus a lot more work went into restoring it. And as BBailey stated, Amazon's been having it available pretty consistently under $100 for the last several months now.

Re: Star Trek Into Darkness Blu-ray Problem

My order for the Limited Edition bluray set that comes with the phaser prop replica has just shipped out from Amazon! This I think is a good deal as it comes with the phaser prop replica which cost a lot more than the bluray set if you were to get the phaser on its own on ebay or anywhere else..

And like someone here mentioned, I too don't really care much about the additional contents etc etc... Whats important is the movie in crystal clear HD quality which I can enjoy at the comfort of my home.

Didn't they already sell a phaser blu ray box with Star Trek 2009?

Did they? There was a set which included an Enterprise model, but a phaser set I'm less sure about.

I don't think they did but I'm not 100% sure either.
But what if they did? Is it not allowed to happen again for some reason?

Btw it's supposed to be a new redesigned version, whatever that means, according to Qmx

Do we really need to include big-ass marketing images when we quote posts?
