This applies to the UK releases of Fairy Tail, but it might well apply for the US, too.

Obviously, before now we've had the series released in 'Parts', e.g.
://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B005ZJCI2E/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1371505429&sr=8-1&pi=SL75
...which contains episodes 1-13. So far we've gotten 4 of these Parts accounting for the first section of the anime which got licenced, dubbed etc.

Then, just recently we got an amalgamation of these parts:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B00BFEGS6U/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1371505707&sr=8-1&pi=SL75
...in a boxset which combined all these Parts, i.e. episodes 1-45

What's confusing me is that now, we're getting them seemingly released again, in Collections, e.g.:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B00CYMMU9G/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?qid=1371505865&sr=8-3&pi=SL75
...with this Collection 1 coming next month and Collection 2 coming in September, with only discernable difference being that they each contain slightly more episodes than the Parts each did.

Am I missing something here? Do these Collections contain new material, or are actually Blu-Ray releases or something like that"?

Collection 1 is a BD/DVD combo pack of eps 1-24 in the U.S.

Collection 2 is a BD/DVD combo pack of eps 25-48 which completes season 1.

Ah, so the Collections just include Blu-Ray and have more episodes per volume?

Weirdly, though, Collection 1 is cheaper than Part 1, and I don't see any mention of Blu-Ray in its description...

I can only tell you based on what is available in the U.S. I currently have Collection 1 waiting for next month for the next collection to be released as well as part 5, which they're going back to the "part" releases for the second season.
