Unlike the Wave 1 version, Wave 2 Prime has his faceplate tucked away, showing us his mouth (a first for Movie toys), and features his battle-sword (again, a first).
Just like Bumblebee's Wave 1 and 2 versions, Wave 2 Prime is entirely a different set of tooling than the Wave 1 version. The newer one looks just a little bit more movie-accurate, I think, but it's in the same exact pose. Weird. One step back is the Wave 2 Prime's lack of a waist swivel. That's kinda disappointing, but his waist joint was somewhat of an anomaly among Robot Heroes figures anyway.
