I'm helping a local community center get a decent shape 80s pinball machine for their game room but they seem to be on the pricey side.

Anyone have any tips for a particular model I should look for that's not too expensive? As with arcade machines for example, there's certain games that tend not to cost as much and I'm not as familiar with pinball machines.

That's pretty cool. I know there are arcade and pinball machine associations and clubs. Check to see if you have a regional one. I did a search for "regional pinball clubs" and found some in various areas. Good luck!

That's way cool! Hope you can find what you're looking for. I have seen pinball machines for sale at antique malls before- they definitely are going to be fairly pricey, but it does depend on which one you get of course. Anything name brand will cost much more, I'm sure (i.e. like pinball machines based on current movies, like the Lord of the Rings one I saw a while back- even though technically even those movies are old now...)
I imagine the generic ones that are not based on any particular property will be cheaper.
