I guess you forced them to expose the truth with your order attempt. I just saw it on web site, don't know if they really had it in stock. I am looking for this TV too.
The main differences are the 240Hz vs 120Hz Frame Rate, 7,000,000:1 vs 5,000,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
That's a good piece of info. While manufacturer's dynamic contrast claims are usually BS, it may indicate that 6500 have some better coating and/or backlight control versus 5600.
From reading 5600 reviews it looks like there may be some problem with backlight leaking or something else is wrong with dark levels. I hope it will be better with 6500.
LG can't make 6500 40% brighter so I hope the claimed contrast ratio on 6500 addresses some potential 5600 dark level problems (still uncertain here).
This is the quote from 5600 review that concerns me:"If you like to watch wide aspect ratio movies in dark rooms and/or you tend to obsess over things, this TV isn't for you."
