 I have an old version of my course notes for when I was teaching with
5.0, and I wanted to do transformations on polyhedra.  The number of
vertices were small enough that you can visibly extract them via:

<<Graphics`Polyhedra`
Show[Polyhedron[Octahedron]]
Polyhedron[Octahedron]//InputForm

Not a pretty solution, but it worked for me.
