The mold is identical, right down to the 1999 copyright date.

However, there are subtle differences.

The Ep II blade is a shinier, more translucent plastic than the Ep I blade.

The Ep II hilt is shot in a bright silver, while the Ep I hilt is a relatively dull grey.

The ring around the activation button is painted red on the Ep II version, while the Ep I version is unpainted.

And, at least with my two samples, the Ep II one has much lower-pitched noises. (That may be standard production variation, though.)

In all four cases, I prefer the Ep II version, though again, the differences are pretty minor.

However, the Ep I version is, in my experience, relatively more scarce, so it's in-package value in future should probably be slightly higher.
