is there any particular reason you're interested on LG models alone? I ask because this year passive 3d is used by many more companies other than LG, all the panasonic 2013 LED 3d lineup have passive 3d. Also Sony (W802 and R550 models) as well as others TV brands (toshiba, philips). If you only just want a passive 3d set you could see some of them as well...
About LG 8600, last years (LM) model offered nothing more than faster smart tv platform. I hope this year there is changes at the picture department as well (from what i see from a LA790V review this may apply this year).

Like every new tv model each year, the starting prices are too high for what they offer...
My opinion would be to wait for the new model too drop it's price down to normal (shouldn't take long before you see a big drop on its price)!
