Coming Soon

At Archonia.com we have a number of items which we pre-sell before they are actually released. This is often the case for merchandise, but also for other articles.
These items most of the time have their exclusivity in common; which means that we have to order them well in advance and even then cannot guarantee that we will be able to provide all copies we anticipate to be able to provide.
Hence it is of vital importance that you order these items as soon as they are announced, but definitely before the announced order close date expires, since we all fill the orders on a first placed first served basis.
The Coming Soon button shows you a detail screen which contains all items which are coming soon. The top bar in the middle will allow you to narrow down the search by clicking on the starting letter of a title you can choose anything from A thru Z and 0-9. Clicking All will show you the full list of articles we expect soon.
By default, when clicking on the Coming Soon button, you are shown the full list of All.
